    Hiking Trails and Dune Overlooks

    by basstbn Written Feb 14, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are a number of hiking trails that give a variety of views of the dunes. Some are well-maintained wooden walkways alongside the cliffs, others go through the shifting sands. The accompanying photos show several views from these walks. I apologize that I did not do a better job of recording the exact locations.

    Melody was not too pleased with the hot sand. Long-distance view of one of the inland lakes
