The 12 foot wide paved trail parallels the canal on its south side for 7 miles and an equestrian trail is also nearby with access to 11 miles of riding trails. The trail is in good condition and mostly flat, though there are some minimal ups and downs. the western-most couple of miles run through maritime hammocks and along salt marshes. It runs about 5 miles west to the Gulf, and the trail also extends east another mile and a half or so before ending east of Felburn Park.
A marvelous view of the Gulf awaits you at the end.

Miles of old logging roads offer hikers and mountain bikers more miles of wooded trails.
