A pretty enjoyable small hike. I will say at the time my group was looking for something smaller before heading back to Eugene, and this trail felt much longer than I had expected. From the map I’d guessed a mile but I believe my phone said 2.8 at the time so idk the map might be a little off. The trail is very shaded which makes it great for the summer. And if you’re one to stop and take breaks throughout, there’s a lot of benches at points to do so. The roots on the trail path definitely aren’t the worst I’ve seen, and at some points create neat steps to make an otherwise smooth incline more like a stair. For large stretches the roots are absent. We did have a dog with us who took near every opportunity possible to go down into the shallower creek off the trail. About twice there were moments he stepped down into it, but did struggle to get back on the trail. Luckily he’s pretty strong so he eventually did it.
The trail begins with the creek and moderate inclines/declines. Once you leave the creek and head into the dunes it is pretty much a cardio workout. For the adventerous bring your sandboard.
Staying on the main trail I was stung a bunch of times!
