  • Other than the beach, the best part of Gulf State Park. Good anytime, but took a bicycle ride at dusk and enjoyed the frogs and birds, especially the calls of the Chuck Will's Widow. Looked for the Catman, I think I may have seen him!
  • Beautiful early morning biking experience. Well maintained. Alligator or two!
  • We have enjoyed using this trail for several years. Great trail for walking, jogging or cycling. Nice change of scenery from beaches. Lots of opportunity to see wildlife from alligators, snakes, eagles etc. Trail is well maintained with plenty places to just sit and enjoy the peace and quiet.
  • 100% FREE This park is so exciting. Huge well maintained trails. Early A.M. and late P.M. are the best time for getting close to the local inhabitants. Have never been down this trail, and not seen atleast one alligator.
  • This place surprised me. I wasn't expecting so much wildlife near the urban area. The trails are well preserved, and I even saw an alligator!
