Project Description

This project will extend, and ultimately complete, the Fort Morgan Parkway Trail from Fort Morgan Historical Park in the west to Gulf State Park and the Hugh Branyon Backcountry Trail in the east. Completion of this 15-mile segment will enable Alabama's citizens and guests to travel approximately 30 miles, from Fort Morgan Historical Park (the western most terminus); eastward to the existing parkway trail within the boundaries of the City of Gulf Shores; continuing eastward into Gulf State Park and connecting with the Back Country Trail, providing trail users with a route all the way to Perdido Bay via the Alabama Coastal Connection, a designated Alabama Scenic Byway.
