Bike or Hike Down the Gulf Shore Way

Take a short walk along the Reeds and Rushes Trail where the bulrushes surround you. Hop on your bike and meander along the Gulf Shore Way where the sea birds cheer you on. Sand dunes rise from the beaches, birds call from the salt water marshes, animals drink from the freshwater ponds. The forest creeps closer to the shore. It's nature in her endless variety all in one place.
