Carolina Beach State Park has several hiking trails, and the Sugarloaf Trail is the longest of them all. It leads through the center of the park, past the marina, and out to the banks of the Cape Fear River. Here the dogs can get some energy out running and playing in and out of the water on a long sandy beach. Beyond the beach, the trail continues for another three quarters of a mile to the top of the Sugarloaf Dune.
