This 1.8 mile, self-guided trail, encompasses many species of Oaks, Magnolia, Pines, and a variety of indigenous plants and animals of the Mississippi Gulf Coast. A pier with a gazebo extends over Mud Bayou's canal. Here, visitors may spot lots unique coastal wildlife including, Brown and White Pelicans, Egrets, Osprey, or feeding Blue Crabs.
