Anastasia State Park

Join us for a fun and educational hike through Anastasia State Park with one of our experienced and knowledgeable volunteers! This walk starts out on the beautiful shoreline, continues up through the sand dunes, and travels along the boardwalk over the salt marsh. Participants will then have an intermission and rest break at the Windsurf Pavilion. From there the walk will continue along Salt Run, our estuarine habitat, and through the maritime hammock. Participants will discover an assortment of flora and fauna that populate the several ecosystems of Anastasia, and they will increase their knowledge of some history of the park and the surrounding area. The round-trip length is 2.5 miles, but the walk proceeds at a leisurely pace. If a shorter distance is preferred, participants may choose to walk just the first half to Windsurf. Suggested items to bring are binoculars, comfortable walking shoes, a camera, drinking water, bug spray, and sunscreen. Meet in the beach parking lot at the end of the main park road. This event is weather permitting and subject to cancellation.
