During the Civil War the city of Mobile was described as being the most fortified city of the Confederacy. With several land forts surrounding it, two in the expansive delta and Mobile Bay, and two pre–Civil War masonry forts guarding the entrance to the bay at the Gulf of Mexico. One of those, on the eastern shore of the bay, is Fort Morgan. The other, on the eastern tip of Dauphin Island, is Fort Gaines. Located on the eastern tip of Alabama’s barrier island, Dauphin Island, this hike takes you not only through some magnificent wetlands and forest to do a little bird watching but also on a wonderful beach walk that culminates in a visit to historic Fort Gaines, a massive stone fortress that is the twin of Fort Morgan.
