I found this hike in Best Hikes with Dogs New Jersey.
We didn't do the dunes portion as we had so much fun on the beach.

From parking lot, head towards the beach, and turn left.

Turn around and retrace route.

Head towards the beach from the parking lot, and once you hit the ocean, turn left (north):
