The Lure of the Islands in the Gulf of Mexico What is it that entices people to the sea? Poet John Masefield wrote,

Enjoyable. Part of trail is along the street (Booo!), but remainder of trail was through wooded areas and pleasant. I liked that the bayou overlook was on a wooden platform so I was elevated and the view was good.

Dog friendly and easy well marked trails, be sure to stop in the visitors center very helpful and informative. Wonderful program for children, can't wait to bring my grandson.

It is a beautiful place to see, a wonderful first time hike with the kids.

Really easy and accessible.

The area is beautiful, although be warned, much of the hiking "trail" runs along the side of the road through the park. But there is a short loop that winds through some beautiful shady areas along the bank of the bayou. If you want to see an alligator, it's a great place to check out. Off of the fishing pier and over the marsh, you can also see a beautiful sunset.

Beautiful trees and scenery is pretty but after boardwalk ends the trail overgrown and hard to see in spots.
