Trails are mostly not marked with signs, so a map is helpful to keep you going in the right direction. There are some short out-and-back spurs to bay and sound views. There is one section of very loose sand for maybe a mile. Most of it is hard pack.

History & Background

This area was set aside by President Andrew Johnson as a preserve for oak trees to be used for ship building. This part of Gulf Islands National Seashore is called Naval Live Oaks.
