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

I completed this hike on Black Friday with my mom and dad to participate in opt outside. We could not have asked for better weather. Unfortunately most of the trail is on the side of the road. There are a few nice overlooks and shady areas through the woods displaying some fall foliage. We saw a few birds, turtles, and just a moderate amount of people along the trail. The information center was nice and clean. I wish there were more trails in the woods but I wouldn’t mind going back for a kayak tour.

Fantastic. No high-rise hotels and condos. Not many people. Gulf of Mexico at its finest.

Sad that you have to pay $15 to enter.

This is a great place to take the kids out for an easy hike! Simple yet satisfying!

Nice easy trail. This trail offers several opportunities for wildlife watching and wildflowers. Watch out for the alligators in the marsh areas.

Good hike but watch out for the ticks in the summer.
