Exploring a New Pink-Tagged Trail

On November 30, 2015 on a hike to primitive campsites being developed, I found this trail in Point Washington State Forest, Santa Rosa Beach, NW Florida. It ends on Eastern Lake in Seagrove Beach.


See the movie as I explore: YouTube or Vimeo.

Map on Pink TrailThe video starts at the northern end of the trail that is clearly tagged and marked on Road 7 where the Orange tagged part of the Eastern Lake Trail joins the road. The video ends in the unfinished primitive campsites on Eastern Lake. The trail is about a mile long. From there you can loop back to Road 7 on the campsite road, about 0.3 miles long.

The blue lines on the map show two ways to hike to the pink trail from east or west of Eastern Lake on Scenic Coastal Highway 30A.

By boat from the lake, you can land at the campsite point to hike the pink trail from south to north.
