Dogs are NOT allowed on this trail. We were unable to hike here. Gulf Shores State Park is not far from this location and offers numerous dog friendly trails.

Did this and the latter half of pine beach trail. There are the ruins of an old house off the trail with some interesting history. The bear is secluded and probably one of the few places where there are no condos built.

Not a long trail but a very nice nature trail that skirts the lagoon. We hike it every year while snow birding in Gulf Shores.

Nice 1 mile loop partial gravel and boardwalk. There was a tree down on the boardwalk that was easy to step over when I went. Centennial Trail branches off from but didn't try this trip. Trail head has parking and maps.

Did the loop with the girls on a little Gulf Shores Vacation. It was a pleasant little walk.
