Hugh S. Branyon Backcountry Trail Visitors Guide

Hugh S. Branyon Backcountry Trail lies in a region that used to be inhabited by Native Americans. Early hunting paths that became logging roads for European settlers eventually were converted into the trails of the Backcountry Trail. From humble beginnings, the trail has now evolved into a popular Gulf Coast destination. Several different trails intersect with the main trail so you can choose which one fits your interest best.

The Backcountry Trail’s nature pavilion offers a porch swing, where you can sit and watch birds and butterflies. In the pavilion, you can also watch an educational show that teaches about the environment and nature. If you have kids with you, they can try rock climbing at the Bouldering Park next to the pavilion. This scenic trail is perfect for anyone interested in enjoying some quiet time with nature or getting some exercise by hiking, walking, or biking with friends or family members.
