Whether you visit the Forest Trail rich with pine forests, hardwood hammocks, streams, and rivers, or the Coastal Trail of salt marshes, bays, sand dunes, beaches, and springs, it’s the natural place to be.
The Byway can be accessed from a variety of points and trips can easily be divided into multiple day segments. Byway towns offer great restaurants, shopping, hotels and B&B’s, guide services, and information is readily available. You can be as active as you wish as facilities for hiking, biking, kayaking, fishing, horseback riding, hunting, birding, and swimming are available in multiple locations. For the best of both worlds, take the 2-day loop drive, starting and ending in Tallahassee at the Regional Airport.
All seasons have their advantages. Spring: wildflowers & songbirds, Summer: wildlife nesting & swimming; Fall: wildflowers & butterfly and bird migrations; Winter: peak waterfowl migration, eagles nest, and alligators bask in the sun.
