Grasslands Nature Trail: Located just past the park entrance gate, Grasslands Nature Trail gives visitors a chance to see what lies beyond the beach and behind the dunes. This short, ¾ mile trail is paved and universally accessible.

Because a large part of the island is marsh there can be incredible numbers of mosquitoes at times, however, the normal offshore wind is strong enough to keep most flying insects off the beaches. This is one reason we encourage people not to go into the grasslands or off the beach, it can be extremely uncomfortable. If you plan on walking the Grasslands Nature Trail during the summer, be certain to apply plenty of insect repellant and you should have no problem.
