Reviewed 4 August 2014

These well maintained and paved trails go through many habitat areas of coastal Orange Beach, with opportunities for both exercise and nature observation. There are all kinds of birds, including eagles, reptiles and mammals, and interesting local plants. Scenic and enjoyable routes can take you a ways, so be sure to bring a water bottle and a map of the various trail options.

these trails are all over gulf shores and they are excellent.
our hotel was located right next to a state trail called coyote crossing. My Two dogs and I hopped on the trail and walked for two miles down nice paved lanes and saw bikers, and runners and walkers of all ages. the view was beautiful with thick wooded trees, green grasses and nice landscaping. the trails all intersect and you can go as far or as little as you want.
great way to get exercise for the two legged or four legged traveler.

My family enjoyed this outing and had a great exercise filled day. The trails are well marked and my favorite trail was Gulf Oak Ridge. It had its uphills and fast swoops downhill. There are many places to rest along the way, be sure to bring extra waters, especially if it is a hot day. It is peaceful and you will feel energized and accomplished once you complete it.

What you would expect in an urban state park or city park. Winds through some inland ponds and small swampy areas. Not a lot of wildlife when we visited, but did see an alligator. I think I would classify this as more of an exercise trail than a backcountry hiking trail.
