This is an annual "warbler trap" destination in the spring, and often, too, in the fall, but the scenic and accessible paths are good in any season. We've seen wonderful things here and treasure its natural beauty.

My boyfriend and I went here to see what the trails were like inside. They are very buggy! Make sure you have bug spray! We only walked a little bit since we were tired!

We biked through the Beech forest (although we mostly was oaks) and it was a thorough pleasure. Highly recommend.

Just one of the most peaceful places a short distance from the craziness of Ptown. Located in the National Seashore (thank you JFK) it offers lovely walking trails as well as an extensive bike trail as well. Enjoy the calmness and tranquility

The paved path through this otherwise pristine area makes it a pleasure to experience either walking or on a bicycle. Pleasurably uncrowded even on holiday weekends.

I love this trail! It's a little hilly. The terrain is diverse and it's especially beautiful in autumn!

This has always been one of my stops on my trips to Ptown. When my son was younger and we needed a point of interest to spend some time at this was one of the spots. There is a pond there with some picnic tables...More

Rent a bike and pedal to the Beech Forest! It is very relaxing for couples or the whole family. Bring something to eat and have a picnic! Yey!

We aren't dog owners, so I can't speak from experience. I tend to agree with the other responders, though.
