The 2,228-acre Grayton Beach State Park is a relatively small park, yet its nature trail winding among huge sand dunes, pine flatwoods, and scrub communities is both scenic and instructive. The walk begins in an area of shifting sand dunes. The sand settles only after plants and trees take root and hold it in place. In one spot, a shady hammock of live oaks, magnolias, and palmettos illustrates how effectively plant life can halt the advancement of sand.
