It was a short walk into a wooded area. The large trees gave a nice scene, but we couldn’t see any mounds. Very overgrown with vines and brush.

This is a short walk that gets you into nature - maybe a little too much nature at times since it's pretty overgrown. There are hills made out of shells but not signage so it's a guess as to what you are looking at. Don't come here if you are allergic to poison ivy since it's along every path and almost impossible to miss. The history was interesting but that's about it.

This park is located on and around a mound of, mainly oyster, shells that have been there for thousands of years. The site of native American settlements, it is a forested quiet walk through natural surroundings. On a quiet day, you almost forget that there is an island full of activity surrounding you. A great walk for nature and history lovers.

This is a very popular site for birdwatchers, and for good reason. The habitat is lush and beautiful, and a great place for hungry birds to land after flying over the Gulf of Mexico in the spring. There are always several other birders around, too, to help make the stop successful. We saw many migrants on three or four visits to this location over the four days we were in Dauphin Island. Don't miss it!

A few acres of mounds with an interesting history of their creation and winding paths among the foliage including some large live oaks. Not real exciting or some kind of big, amazing deal....but, a pleasant way to spend a half hour or so if you like being outside.
