The Hugh S. Branyon Backcountry Trail is a multi-use, handicapped-accessible asphalt & boardwalk nature trail that winds through the pristine Coastal Alabama forests within the cities of Gulf Shores & Orange Beach and the Gulf State Park. Nestled along freshwater lakes and streams less than a mile north of the Gulf of Mexico, the trail supports numerous uses, including walking, running, biking, roller blading, nature hikes and bird watching. The trail is named after the director of Gulf State Park Hugh S. Branyon in honor of his vision to improve public access to the diverse spectrum of nature.
The trail stretches along the unspoiled coastal lowland area of Alabama’s Gulf Coast, from Orange Beach to Gulf state Park to Gulf Shores and is ideal for outdoor activities such as biking, hiking, bird-watching, etc.
