2023 Design Award Highlight | Citation Award | Gulf State Park Hike and Bike Trails | ArchitectureWorks
Gulf State Park is located on the coast of Alabama and is home to 6,500 acres of protected land. Though there are two and a half miles of beach shoreline, the majority of the Park lies inland. The nine and a half miles of trails that originally connected various destinations in the Park were expanded by over 25 miles, creating loop systems to encourage visitors' education of the various ecosystems unique to the area. The vehicular-free system includes paved trails and elevated boardwalks connected to the beachfront trails by two pedestrian bridges. The trails create a universally accessible system for all ages and abilities to safely experience the Park.
