Percy Quin State Park Nature Trail

We did this trail 11/15 and it was an okay trail except for one big thing: ALL OF THE BRIDGES ARE OUT. They are all in disrepair or just washed away. do not go with children or on a cold day. you will get wet. Also the road ways have been changed and cut off so don't plan on a drop off and pick up. other than that its cool, but very wet

Black Creek Hiking Trail

Lovely trail, hiked the first 10 miles starting at the Big Creek Landing Recreation Area in late October 2014. It's wide, well maintained and has plenty of stream crossings to replenish water, be sure to have some method of treating your water. For this section a 1 liter (2 quart) bottle and a Steripen Adventurer did the job. The terrain is pretty flat for the most part but there are a few small hills. Easy in that regard.

Clark Creek Primitive Trail

Clark Creek, is a little slice of northern terrain for the south. With some moderate climbs, and beautiful waterfalls its a Wonderland for anyone. The honor box is now 4 dollars. Still the most value for 4 dollars I've ever seen. Definitely bring water and a snack along with you. I've hiked this whole area 4 times, looking at about 4.5 hours. Be prepared, the last leg of the journey to the parking lot is all up hill.

Yesterday I hiked with friends from airey lake toward pow camp. I carried about 30 lbs, we camped just past mile marker 9 by some water. The trail was marked by white diamonds but there were ambiguous areas on which way to turn at crossroads. Too many trails cut across in my opinion. We got turned around and discovered we were going the wrong way. So we camped early. Definitely a gps is good. I did not think I needed one. And water from the airey lake camp for sure unless you have a good filter like I did. Overall fun I guess. I like more scenery. Airey lake on sat. Busy with boy scouts. Noisy.

Clear Springs Trail

We went to check out the facilities and the trails today. I posted a few photos. Part of the trail closest to the lake is closed due to a bridge that was damaged. We had no idea until we arrived at the bridge. There weren't any signs near the swimming area, which is where we started our hike. But except for that it's a very interesting trail. I can't speak for the trails that run further away from the lake. We didn't try those out today. We will be back soon however.

Ship Islands and Fort Massachusetts, Gulf Islands National Seashore

My wife and I have been here several times from 2006 through 2014. Take your sunblock! Although I wouldn't recommend going out of your way to make this trip, I do recommend it if you're in the area. Take your sunblock! Insect repellent isn't always necessary but occasionally it is appreciated. There is no shade unless you rent umbrellas from the boat company. The fort is moderately interesting. Watch for dolphins on the boat ride out to the island and occasionally swimming along the beach. The condition of the beach is variable; sometimes it's pristine with fresh white sand, other times it's black and/or covered in washed-up dried-out seaweed. Did I mention to take your sunblock?! On weekends the main beach area can be over-run with people but it isn't hard to walk up the beach far enough to get away from the crowd. You can bring a cooler on the boat ride to the island, highly recommend roller coolers as the walk across the island to the gulf-side beach is long if you're carrying a cooler.
