“This is an easy figure eight hike on the Indian River Bay.”— Bob Collins
Family Friendly An easy hike with a cool beach to visit.
Crossing back to the west side on the Green Trail, the loop wind through early successional forest, then pines, then mature mixed maritime forest. Be careful of the boardwalks, which can be slippery and uneven. See the views of the salt marsh from the Orange Trail Spur. In addition to Pasture Point Cove and the beach, there is the highlight of the hike itself.
Various vegetative zones include freshwater wetland, salt marsh, beach, mixed maritime forest, and upland meadow. All sorts of cool mushrooms during wet periods (forage at your own peril).
