Grayton Beach consistently ranks among the most beautiful and pristine beaches in the United States. The beach provides an idyllic setting for swimming, sunbathing and surf fishing and is the backdrop for golden sunrises and silver moonlit evenings. The nearly 2,000-acre park features a boat ramp that provides access to the lake's brackish waters for both freshwater and saltwater fishing. Visitors can paddle a canoe or kayak on scenic Western Lake to get a closer look at a salt marsh ecosystem. A nature trail winds through a coastal forest where scrub oaks and magnolias stand, bent and twisted by the salt winds. Hikers and bicyclists can enjoy more than four miles of trails throughout the pine flatwoods. Options for overnight stays include modern cabins and a full-facility campground.

Note: Trailhead has been moved east about 1/4 mile. The new starting point adds about 1.5 miles to the entire loop. My Garmin Vivoactive recorded right at 6.0 miles start to finish. Beautiful trail with minimal elevation.

This is one of my favorite places close to home. It's very peaceful and the views are gorgeous. The rangers are so friendly and helpful. It's a very short trail, but the powdery white sand and palmetto groves are hard to resist! If you enjoy barefoot hikes, you will love this one.

Flatwoods trail is a nice easy hike with beautiful scenery and little incline. The shady, flat trail makes this a nice jaunt for less experienced hikers. They sell water at the park entrance but then its sparse. $2 fee to use this trail.

Very lovely this time of the year. Nice and flat for people who are more interested in a good nature walk than an intense hike, but lots of pretty stuff to see along the way. The lake is gorgeous. Lots of shady places, but definitely don't forget the sunscreen.

Its a flat, wooded forest that isn't really maintained, but gets use from walkers, bikes, horses and vehicles. Still its a nice loop to make close to town and the campground.

Nice easy trail in the state park. Beautiful beach. Interesting trail. Could not finish because a low spot was too muddy and we were not prepared.

Nice trail, but a little confusing as you cross trails a few times and all are blue!

Well maintained, flat, sandy and easy.

Saw a few people while hiking, snowbirds with their dogs mostly. The trail is well marked and easy to follow.

it's located in Grayton Beach across 30A (on the North side) from the State Park.
