Eastpoint, Florida Map

Doesn't compare to the Blue Ridge Mountains, but a decent hike overall. Saw a snake and some eagles. The walk along the road was a little hairy at times.

The trail is located in Tate's Hell State Forest in Carrabelle, Florida. Both the eastern and western trailhead parking areas are accessible from US 319 just outside the town. The trail is mostly sand and the elevation change is pretty gradual so it isn't much of a challenge. There isn't much to see that you can't see from any other trail in Florida. During my visit, the northern side of the western loop was closed and we got caught by the rain so we took the road back to cut some time off. The trail map says it is the first trail in the forest so I am guessing it is relatively new. Not the greatest trail in the area but there are worse ways to spend a few hours.

Great hike for a fall or winter afternoon. State Park is well-maintained with beautiful views.

Easy trail with beautiful views.

This is an easy hike thru the Island with great views of the Gulf of Mexico and Apalachicola Bay. We hiked a loop including part of the campground trail and back along the Gulf of Mexico beach. Great weather and only a few people on the beach for 2 miles.

This trail is not recommended for summer time hiking, which is when I went. The trail is sandy through marshy area. The bugs are abundant during the summer so bring bug spray, sunscreen and plenty of water. I am sure this trail would be pleasurable in the fall and winter months. Plenty of birds to observe on the hike. The trail begins near the picnic pavilions and ends at the campground. If starting at the pavilions, I recommend hiking 2/3 of the trail and then back track. My mother-in-law and children did this while I completed the trail at the campground. You either have to retrace the trail or walk down the side of the road back to the end of the trail you started from. I was fortunate that an elderly couple were sitting outside their RV and he offered me a ride back to the beach and pavilions.
