Overview

This route covers bay and sound-side views. All the best of what this area has to offer.

Runner Notes

Sand, hard pack, some low hanging branches, mostly wide open trail.

Description

Trails are mostly not marked with signs, so a map is helpful to keep you going in the right direction. There are some short out-and-back spurs to bay and sound views. There is one section of very loose sand for maybe a mile. This loop combines the trails with the least amount of beach sand running.

This loop is often combined with an extra jaunt over the Bob Sikes Bridge over to Pensacola Beach to add the beautiful Gulf of Mexico waters and sugar like sand beaches.

Flora & Fauna

Dolphins!

History & Background

This area was set aside by President Andrew Johnson as a preserve for oak trees to be used for ship building. This part of Gulf Islands National Seashore is called Naval Live Oaks.

Giant spiders make webs across the trail during the summer. Ran here back in July and they were evenly spaced about every 5 feet right at face level. Aug 12, 2018
