A great option for enjoying the outdoors around the Rosemary Beach® community is taking a bike ride on the Timpoochee Trail. Named after an influential Euchee Indian Chief, this nearly 19-mile trail starts just east of Rosemary Beach and winds its way to just beyond the Topsail Hill Preserve State Park. On the way, you’ll pass through several other state parks, as well as quaint beach towns and beautiful beach access points. The trail runs parallel to the scenic highway 30A and is open to bikers, pedestrians, rollerbladers and more. As an added valued, all vacation rental homes in the Rosemary Beach community includes bikes – take them out for a spin on the Timpoochee Trail!
A Perfect Excursion on the Timpoochee Trail
While just hopping on the trail and blasting away can get you from point A to point B in less than two hours, we recommend you take your time and enjoy some of the beautiful stops along the way.
Dune Lakes, State Parks and Lunch
Not far past Seacrest you’ll get a great view of the first dune lake along the trail, Camp Creek Lake. This is a great spot for a stunning sunset photo. Back on the trail, you’ll soon come to Deer Lake and the entrance to Deer Lake State Park, and past that, Eastern Lake. There are plenty of places to stop along the Timpoochee Trail Florida coming up in Seagrove and Seaside, including a convenience shop and shopping center, Angelina’s, a favorite for local Italian food, and the Old Florida Fish House, known for their sandwiches and fresh seafood.
The Largest Lake
Farther on, in the WaterColor neighborhood, there’s a popular photo opportunity on the solar lit bridge over the largest of the dune lakes, Western Lake. If you have the energy to carry on, you’ll be able to pedal into Grayton Beach, where you can explore the community and shops, or take a side trip into the Grayton Beach State Park. Keeping on the trail, you’ll pass another dune lake and then coast into the Blue Mountain Beach area. If you stop here, La Loba’s organic cinnamon rolls are a must-have treat.
Approaching the last few miles of the trail, you’ll find a picturesque covered bridge that’s perfect for a group photo. The nearby beach accesses of Ed Walline or Dune Allen provide restrooms, water fountains, and more great photo opportunities. Once you get to the split of Highway 30A from US Highway 98, congratulations, you’ve reached the end of the Timpoochee Trail Florida! Assess the time, get some more food, or check out the Topsail Hill Preserve State Park before you turn around and head back towards the Rosemary Beach community.
