Coastal Trail

The Coastal Trail likewise is also divided into three segments of East, Central and West. It is Coastal Trail East that encompasses the coastal areas of Wakulla County. Along this trail you will encounter natural beaches, salt marshes and tidal flats – the buffet bars for fish and birds, and estuaries that serve as nursery beds for fish and shellfish like oysters, shrimp and crab. This trail begins close to the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge, passes by the City of St. Marks, the fort, and bike trail, over the Wakulla River past Wakulla Beach and follows Coastal Highway 98. There are several side trips worth the wander including Harvey’s Historic Truck Display, a line of rusted antique trucks, one of the most photographed features along the entire Byway. The trail continues on to Panacea, home of the Wakulla Welcome Center and Gulf Specimen Marine Laboratory, southward to Ochlockonee Bay, where it exits Wakulla County, goes past Bald Point State Park, then ends at the Florida State University Marine Laboratory, and the next segment of trail continues its journey along the fabulous Forgotten Coast.
