Ticks everywhere. I should have checked out the reviews. You can only get to the beach through a forest and marsh covered in ticks The stairs to the beach are closed. Every member of my party had a tick, my dog had dozens

Stop by CVS pharmacy before you go for antibiotics. The stairs are now closed due to erosion so to get to the beach you are directed through a tic infested forest. My husband got lyme here and this is just not worth it.

This may have been nice at one time, but not anymore. One of the staircases to the beach is under a dune now due to erosion. The look out is closed due to teetering on the edge of a cliff due to erosion of the coastal bank. The other set of stairs has been taken apart so you can't get to the beach. It wasn't even close to high tide and there was no beach left. There are no facilities due to covid. The wildlife is clearly taking over. We saw a Fischer cat that stopped and snarled right at us! It's clearly not sprayed for ticks. The paths to where the lookout used to be was infested. It can not even compare to the Marconi Beach Cape Cod National Seashore for a beach or Nickerson Sate Park for hiking. Not worth the trouble. The remaining area is clearly marked as PRIVATE. Personally I DO NOT feel comfortable trespassing!!!

The main trail, Morris Island Loop, is heavily damaged by erosion. It is not possible to walk the entire loop because it goes into the ocean. There are other trails off of the loop we didn’t know about that may be very nice. If you go, just don’t expect to do the main loop.

We got caught in the rain but it was still a very nice walk. Very short but beautiful beach spot to take pictures. Good for anyone who wants a short walk to a pretty destination. Drive was a little confusing because we are not familiar with the area, but overall great spot.
