Gayle's Trails Description

Gayle's Trails is part of a growing greenways and trails system that will eventually span the entirety of Panama City Beach. Already, Gayle's Trails connects Frank Brown Park to the 3,000-acre Panama City Beach Conservation Park, where you'll find long boardwalks crossing cypress swamps, off-road trails perfect for mountain biking, hiking, or walking your dog. Gayle's Trails is a tribute to a true conservation advocate. Named after Gayle Oberst, who is currently serving as Mayor of Panama City Beach, due to her trail conservation work.

Parking and Trail Access

There are parking lots and trailheads at Panama City Beach Conservation Park, at Frank Brown Park, and at the northern end of Gulf Boulevard. There is also a trailhead at the current eastern end of the trail at the Colony Club subdivision, but there is no parking at that location.

Gayle's Trails Reviews

My husband and I did this trail on a beautiful day in March 2016. I think the idea behind the trail is wonderful and will go back to see if there are any more paved trails.

The short paths that are paved require a lot of back and forth. The trails in the conservation area were too dangerous to ride on regular bikes (great for off road bikes)! I think the plan is to pave some more of these trails and that would be great.

We found it difficult to actually locate the entrance to the trail. It is in Frank Brown park but the signage off Hwy 98 is poor. Lots of signs for beaches but none to this park.

Once you are at the park, again, no evidence of where the trails are or how to access them. Fortunately the park office was open and someone there helped us.

Good for Panama City mayor for promoting this activity!
