Stoney Bayou Loop at St Marks Refuge

Stoney Bayou Loop at St. Marks Refuge Professional Review and Guide

"This hike circles a pool at St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) created to enhance waterfowl habitat. Travel a section of the Florida Trail as it traces an elevated dike before picking up another berm from which views extend in all directions. See alligators among other creatures that call the refuge home. A short road walk takes you back to the trailhead.

This hike is open to the elements—bring a sun hat, sunscreen, and bug dope in warmer weather. St. Marks NWR is one of the oldest refuges in the United States and is a huge natural asset for the Big Bend. Spread over 68,000 acres, the refuge protects not only waterfowl, songbirds, and land creatures but also native flora. Within its bounds are important saltwater estuaries where marine life has a chance to thrive."
