Fontainebleau Nature Trail

Hanshaw Road
Ocean Springs, MS 39564

This trail is on the Fontainebleau unit of the refuge. To get to the trail, travel south from I10 on Hwy 57 until you reach U.S. Hwy 90. Turn south on Hanshaw Road and the trail head is on the eastern side of the road before you hit Old Spanish Trail (The trail is adjacent to the Ocean Springs Middle School). This trail is open during daylight hours and features a mile and a half of trail through a variety of habitats. Enjoy the view from one of the two observation platforms on the trail as it winds by the bayou. Several benches are available along the trail. You can reach the trail by kayak or canoe from the Davis Bayou. The boat dock is great for coming to the trail from the Gulf Islands National Seashore.
