The coastal birding trail always makes me slow down a bit and be patient. I've followed a few of the trails from the guide and it's a great way to show your in town guests around as well...

The birding trail is directly in the path of migrating birds in the spring and fall. With the mild winters, opportunities abound.

So easy to follow the trails of different lengths, so no matter your time/physical limits, you can see things you've never seen in any other area. Loved the signage

I love birds and it was fabulous to be able to either walk or bike along the trail and stop to take pictures of birds en route.

We love taking long walks while on vacation. We go to Jeff Friends trail and the BonSecour nature trails in Gulf Shores. Its a nice pleasant walk

This is a amazing place to visit. The trails go through the marsh to be able to see the different bird nesting areas an goes out to the beach.

Took advantage of traveling to some of the spots here. Maps were well marked. Not a good season to see birds but was good to get out

It was a nice walk, but saw very few birds. I think we saw about 3 the whole trail. Maybe it is a seasonal thing. If you really want to see a big variety of birds, look on the coastal edge and in the water of Dauphin Island. They really put on a fabulous show there.

We sampled several sections of the trail & all were well marked with clear signs & distance markings. Parking is ample & we came across an occasional outhouse (solar powered fans - not that primitive). We didn't really expect to see many birds this time of year, we did enjoy seeing new (to us) types of wild flowers. One tip... More
