Sledding on the Dunes


Family-Friendly Hikes

  • The Dune Life Nature Trail is a wonderful family-oriented hike. As you walk the trail, you'll follow Katy the Kit Fox as she explains how she survives in the harsh environment of the dunefield. You'll also learn about many of the animals that make their home among the white sands. The trail is about 1.25 miles in length and takes roughly 40 minutes to complete.
  • The Interdunal Boardwalk is another great family hike. Interpretive signs will tell you about how plants manage to eke out a living in a seemingly waterless world as you meander along the planked walkway through a pristine interdunal area.
