The beach is just on the other side of the dunes and there is a connector trail.
There are great views of the lighthouse from everywhere along the trail!
Once we moved away from the dunes/beach, the trail turns into a combination of boardwalk and dirt path, and the feel of the park sometimes even feels like forest.
The Red Trail is a short offshoot from the Blue Trail and is quite shady until you reach a bird blind/viewing area. There are a couple other bird blinds/viewing areas along the Blue Trail.
