Cheesequake Blue Trail Loop Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This soft trail meanders through tidewater salt marsh, encountering southern plant species such as spring and summer-blooming fragrant magnolias, a lot of birdsong for your dog to pick up his ears and listen to, and diverse terrain with different scents and sights. Canine and human feet will feel good pounding this sand.

The path’s gentle ups and downs are short and fun through the park’s state-designated Natural Area. Bring plenty of water for your dog because the streams here are brackish—a mix of salt and fresh water. This is a “no-excuses” hike—just 1 mile off the parkway. Cheesequake’s trails are mostly civilized and close to the crowds. In fall and winter, they are popular places to walk the local dogs."
