The Sand Ridge Trail is the park’s main trail. A 6.2 mile, moderate trail, that runs almost the entire length of the park, several overlooks can be accessed from this trail. Its northernmost access point is near the Visitor’s Center at the intersection with the Barbour Hill Trail. The trail provides access to nearly all other trails in the park. At the southern end of the trail, hikers may access the Monument Trail, Ocean Pearl Trail, and the trail head at the North Carolina border. This trail is open to hikers and bicyclists though bicycle riders should watch for loose and shifting sand as most bikes will have to be walked through these areas. When hiking the park’s trails watch for wild ponies and feral pigs which should not be approached or fed as they can be aggressive.
