Dune Succession Trail

The Dunes Succession Trail links with two others in the national park system, covering a total of 3.6 miles. As the name suggests, this trail is a great place to see ecological dune succession at work. See amazing dunes and interdunal ponds close up as you traverse a mile along the boardwalks.
