Nestled along the northern Gulf Coast, this park protects a mosaic of diverse landscapes.
The Econfina River meanders like a dark ribbon through pine flatwoods and oak-palm forests, to broad expanses of salt marsh dotted with pine islands.
Nature lovers can explore the scenic beauty by foot, off-road bicycling or horseback on 14.8 miles of wooded trails - or drift along the river in a kayak, canoe or boat. Trails lead to a panoramic view of coastal Florida where lush islands and sand dunes left from a bygone era dot the horizon.
