Francis Bay Trail
Francis Bay Trail
Location: Northside
Distance: 1.6 Miles
Time to Hike: 30 minutes

This trail begins at the west end of the Mary Creek road. The trail passes through a dry forest and leads past the Francis Bay Estate House and onto the beach. There is a mangrove forest and brackish pond at the end of this trail. A viewing area close to the mangrove forest allows an opportunity to bird watch. Snorkeling is good from the beach. The deep-water around Mary Point should be avoided.
