Burtons Island Trail is located just north of the Indian River Inlet Bridge and is tucked away, beyond the Center for the Inland Bays, Hammerheads Dockside, and the marina. It is a short 1.5 mile walk, however the trail is a mix of raised walkways, very soft sand (like walking on the beach), packed earth, and crushed gravel and rocks. A great spot for birding and observing wildlife, there are also beautiful bay views. Parking is very limited, so carpooling is strongly encouraged.
We will depart from the Welcome Center promptly at 9:30AM, carpooling is encouraged if you are returning directly to Bayside.
Delaware State Park fees are now in effect – $5 for In-State Vehicles, $10 for Out-of-State Vehicles
