While there are a myriad of offerings at the Henderson Beach Resort to appeal to all interests, you may still want to venture outside of the resort to enjoy the sunshine and scenery. Cycling on nearby trails is a great way to enjoy the outdoors while taking in the local attractions. Whether you’re a seasoned cycler or enjoy a more leisurely pace, the Timpoochee Bike Trail is a perfect path for riders of all experience levels. Though the trail runs parallel to Scenic Highway 30A from Dune Allen to Rosemary Beach, the wide flat path is safely separated from vehicular traffic. The 18.6 mile trail is ideal for family bike outings, daily exercise, and spontaneous exploration. Following along the coastline, the path provides an opportunity for a multi-sensory experience. Plan a biking trip to satisfy your curiosity and search for adventure.
No matter where you are along the trail, there’s something enticing at every turn. From Miss Lucille’s Gossip Parlor at mile 3 to Shade’s Bar & Grill at mile 18, there’s a different restaurant for every taste at each stop between. For those who like to indulge in eclectic shopping, The Gulf Place Town Center hosts a large meeting place of area merchants and craftsmen. For those with a sweet tooth, The Sweet Peddler at Seacrest offers delectable treats. Many more unique shops and eateries lie along the trail, waiting to be discovered.
If the forests and seas call to you, you’ll be delighted by BOTH along the scenic Timpoochee bike trail. Enjoy the fragrance of flowering plants, or dip your toe in the water near sandy dunes - whatever suits your fancy! Stop at Grayton Beach to see the freshwater lake, spotted with paddlers. Or take a breather at the white sandy beaches of South Walton or Deer Lake State Park. The bike trail is designed to take you off the beaten path to connect you back to nature.
The Timpoochee Bike Trail is mostly flat, so there’s no risk of overly exerting yourself, even if you desire a full day of exploration. Begin your day energized, and take in the sights and activities. Stop to smell the native sweet southern magnolias! Pause to savor a scrumptious lunch at a local eatery. Let the breeze blow through your hair while you pedal along the trail, taking in the smell of the salty sea nearby. Don’t forget to drop in on the merchants to pick up a memorable keepsake to remember your beautiful day. Then, return to the resort for an evening of relaxation, rejuvenation, and peaceful rest.
