Description

This overlook offers sweeping views of the Great Marsh wetland from the top of a sand dune. It's a great spot for birding and catching sunrises.

Short Hike: The overlook is less than 0.5 miles from the parking lot. You can follow Dune Ridge Trail in either direction from the split to reach the overlook.

Family Friendly: A short, fun hike with great views.
