Brackenridge Trail in Naval Live Oaks Park

Brackenridge Nature Trail is a 0.3-mile boardwalk loop trail located in the Naval Live Oaks Park, a part of the Gulf Islands National Seashore. The trail has signs along it describing how the woodland provides food, shelter and nesting for birds, reptiles, and mammals in the area.

An earthen loop hiking trail also joins this wood paved trail and there is an observation platform overlooking Santa Rosa Sound. This is a peaceful place to take a morning walk and explore nature. It’s also a great place to take kids. Afterward, you could have a picnic and walk or sit near the shore.

The boardwalk is wheelchair-accessible.
