Beach & Dunes Trail


The beach and dune community is found along the shoreline, and is formed by rigorous wave activity and wind depositing sand, which forms a mound called a dune. Dunes provide habitat for a number of plants specially adapted to the salty environment and nutrient poor soil.


Here the sea oates grow and sway in the wind, vines creep over the sand as brightly colored flowers bloom to capture the sun's enery.
