Gulf State Park Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The Alabama Gulf Coast has seen its share of disasters over the past several years. In 2004, 2005, and 2006 the area was hit hard by a succession of hurricanes, including Ivan, Dennis, and Katrina. Ivan was by far the worst, scoring a direct hit on Gulf Shores with 130-mile-per-hour winds and a storm surge of 10–12 feet that forced water inland almost a mile."
