A walk through the coastal forest and tidal flats of Leadbetter Point State Park, the Dune Forest Loop is a nice way to see this low-lying peninsula, but the conditions on trail are heavily dependent on the tides and recent rainfall. Come prepared to wade through at least a little bit of water, and don’t be surprised to find yourself navigating deeper stuff. Bring a tide table, and try to visit at low tide for the driest conditions.

WTA began construction of this half mile new trail in 2013. Since then they've built several boardwalks and brushed out a rough corridor leading to a connection with the existing trail system through the forested dunes.
