The park and trails close at 5 PM. The park gate closes at 5:15 pm.
Starting from the Bridge behind the fort, this trail takes you to the Cockspur Lighthouse. This is an out and back trail. The substrate runs from sandy loam to coastal mud the closer you get to the lighthouse. Wax Myrtle and Cedar line the path and give way to coastal scrub as you approach the water. The ever narrowing peninsula gives way to the river as you near the end of the trail.
