This was a nice shady trail. The trees and views of the water were great. Watch out for ticks though. We stayed on the trail and our dog still had to have several picked off of him.

Nice easy trail that follows the beach in the Naval Live Oaks Nature Preserve. A good idea is to start at the Gulf Islands National Seashore visitor's center and follow the boardwalk along the beach and back thru the woods. The trail can be an in and out or 8 mile loop by crossing the highway. The trail features some impressive Live Oaks and lots of hanging moss. The only distraction is the loud traffic with its proximity to US Highway 98 otherwise this is a real nice day hike with lots of great views and photo opportunities.
