  • Wonderful place to walk through beautiful scenery, see wildlife and just breathe! There are numerous trails, gorgeous view of the ocean and a large lake.  more »
  • I only explored a small section of trail leading to the beach. There are many options to make loop trails which I appreciate. The beach isn’t very wide but it’s beautiful and the forest is calming.  more »
  • My fiancé and I walked all the trails here and hung around by Gaillard Lake in a few locations.. all very pretty and not crowded. August though, so it was crazy hot and the mosquitos were awful in...  more »
  • This is a really nice place. There's a walking trail you walk through to get to the beach. And there's the ferry right past this trail that you drive your car on and go across the water. The Audubon Bird Sanctuary is free but the ferry you have to pay for and I don't know how much it is. But still so worth the drive over there for a relaxing fun day or weekend visit! Just the area is really nice. Theres also a bike trail right by the road, by the Audubon Bird Sanctuary that I see people riding their bikes, walking their dogs and walking with their children on it.
  • We always love to walk through here. So many beautiful plants, and trees to enjoy, along with the different species of birds. Love the pond to, even if we have never seen the gator. We live the turtles. We love to keep up with the Osprey as well. The sand dunes,are beautiful and so is the beach. This year we even got to enjoy the water spout.
  • This place is pretty great. It's a nice pathed walk through the woods. There is a pond in the middle of the woods that has plenty of fish and turtles and if you're lucky you might see an alligator. The trails lead you out to the beach and it's a pretty good spot to chill. Also you will probably see a few birds.
  • Me and my 2 girls loved it! Even got to see the alligator in the pond along with a bunch of different turtles. Take water when you go.
  • Its a very beautiful and relaxing place to visit but MAKE SURE TO WEAR BUG SPRAY. We forgot it and soon regretted it. There is several different loops you can take to see different things. I will go back next time we visit Dauphin Island for sure.
