Grayton Beach State Park Trails
The windswept, sugar-white sands of Grayton Beach have long been a haven for anglers, boaters and beachcombers alike since the days of horse-and-buggy transportation. But 2,000-acre Grayton Beach State Park covers a surprisingly diverse collection of coastal ecosystems.
Explore all of it year round along 4 miles of paved, easy-to-moderate trails that meander through pine and scrub forests, and freshwater coastal dune lakes. You’ll also find towering sand dunes bordering Western Lake and the Gulf of Mexico.
One of four South Walton stops along the Great Florida Birding Trail, Grayton Beach trails offer plenty of chances to see a variety of protected species. Don’t be surprised to spot a wild boar or deer. In 2012 alone, South Walton notched a record 115 sea turtle nests.
With lunch available right on the beach, feel free to catch your breath with plenty of sun, surf and sand. And if you’d like to stay a little longer on Grayton Beach, we’d love to have you. Camping and cabins are available, and there’s an unlimited supply of sunsets that you’ll never forget.
