  • Beautiful nature trails to stroll along. Perfect for people of all ages as it is not too strenuous. You could swim from one of the beaches. A great lookout to peer out on to the Gulf.  more »
  • An off the beaten path park which has a good balance between natural and managed. The trails are wide and well maintained (although poorly signed), but the park is very ‘natural’. We walked the main.....  more »

  • It definitely has it's positives: you can access water in a few places that is great for fishing and/or letting your dog swim/play, however, this isn't beach like. More marshy than sandy. It has a huge wooden lookout tower so you can look out over the water or watch the sunset. It has benches throughout the trail but the trail itself isn't the greatest... and that's where everything starts to become more of a negative than positive. The trail itself is a dirt/sand trail and has a ton of ants that run throughout it (wear proper shoes). You can see where they cut down trees and just left them. The bugs are pretty intense along the trail, I left with a ton of mosquito and ant bites(wear bug spray). Besides that, my husband and I walked the entire trail and enjoyed the water.. we have just been to better.
  • This is a dirt/sand trail park on the water. It is dog friendly. There are small beach areas here and there. It's not the beach you think of when thinking of the beach. It's what I refer to as "mash potato sand." It's the wet sloppy sand found in marshes. That never really dries out because it's constantly wet and has a layer of algae under it. There is lots of brush here. So dress accordingly and use bug spray on your legs. It was great for taking the dogs for a walk and getting them in the water since there are not that many dog beaches, if any up this way on the Gulf. If you wanted to launch a kayak it would be easy here. Although you have to walk about 90 or 100 steps until you could put it in the water.
