A man stands on the Francis Beidler Forest boardwalk, looking up at an angle. In his hands are a pair of binoculars. The boardwalk continues behind him, weaving this way and that above the water, between the trees.

Here at Francis Beidler Forest we offer two trails, our old growth virgin forest cypress tupelo swamp boardwalk, and our newer grassland-woodland trail.

The boardwalk is only open and available to the public during operation hours, whereas our grassland-woodland trail is open every day sunrise to sunset. Pets and bikes are not allowed on either trail.
