“nestled along the Northern Gulf Coast”
Nestled along the northern Gulf Coast, this park protects a mosaic of diverse landscapes. The Econfina River meanders like a dark ribbon through pine flatwoods and oak-palm forests to broad expanses of salt marsh dotted with pine islands. Nature lovers can explore the scenic beauty by foot, off-road bicycling or horseback on 14.8 miles of wooded trails - or drift along the river in a kayak, canoe or boat. Trails lead to a panoramic view of coastal Florida where lush islands and sand dunes left from a bygone era dot the horizon. The Econfina River empties into the Gulf of Mexico 2.2 miles south of the park’s boat ramp. Picnic facilities are near the boat ramp and the park offers numerous opportunities for wildlife viewing and bird watching.
We came on our way west to take a break and hike.--the blue trail was very nice but we couldn't finish it as, at this time of year when it was quite wet. there were two depressions in trail. The first had rock pilled up and although slippery (we had to hold hands), we got over it. The second time it was filled with water. But there were pretty views over the marshes.
