    -Proper MTN bike trail is a 5.4 mile loop. Not sure where 14 miles came from unless you count riding all the roads in the park.
    - Trails are divided in two equal sections on either side of the main road. There is a marsh side trail and a beach side trail. Both are pretty similar in length and terrain.
    - The trail is singletrack but plenty wide enough for passing very often and lots of spots have multiple line choices.
    - It's not as flat as you might think it would be. It's nearly always going up and down. Although not super technical there are several short steep sandy climbs with exposed roots that can catch you out if you aren't careful.
    - Trail runs in one direction and that direction is changed at a regular interval ( every 6 months or a year I think).
    - The park is very narrow and therefore when you are on the trail you are never really far away from the main road that runs the length of the park.
    - Lots of places to park but most people seem to park at either the entrance or at the fort. This is mainly for security reasons as state parks are known for being subject to criminal activity around unattended vehicles
    - Extremely fun trail that flows and rolls all the way around for the most part. A few tough short steep climbs here and there. A good trail for beginners and a fun trail for even advanced riders.
    - Beach access in the park and other cool things like the fort itself and lots of water and marsh vistas.
