When driving into Davis Bayou, you enter an oasis of green natural coastal woodland a few miles east of Biloxi amid the growing Mississippi coastline. Davis Bayou is part of the Mississippi Unit of Gulf Islands National Seashore. The greater visitor center area includes a boardwalk that overlooks Davis Bayou and beyond. Bring a picnic, dine under the live oaks, and stop in the visitor center. This hike starts away from the water. As you face the visitor center, the trail starts in the back of the parking area to your right. Leave the parking area, heading through coastal woodland of sweetgum, pine, maple, and willow oak with a thick understory of yaupon holly and palmetto.
