This 3-mile out-and-back hike is in First Landing State Park, also once known as Seashore State Park.  The park sits at the southern corner of the Chesapeake Bay, where the bay meets the Atlantic Ocean.  The hike follows a sequence of dunes to a beautiful sandy overlook of Long Creek on the southwest edge of the park.
