Added by Jake Sells

Hike through forests on boardwalks to a private reserve beach very secluded to the general public.

From the main parking area take the Beach Barrier Trail which takes you through several different types of environment; fields, forests, and marshland before reaching Laudholm Beach to further explore or take a dip.

Walk the length of Laudholm Beach if you have time where barrier beaches protect a mud flat habitat supporting shellfish and shorebirds.
