One of the most authentic ways to enjoy South Walton’s stunning architecture and natural beauty is to do like the locals do — hop on a beach cruiser and take in the sights at the slower pace that life prefers here.
30A‘s 19-mile paved bike path (sometimes referred to the “Timpoochee Trail”) parallels the entire length of the scenic road and passes through all of its famous beach communities, from Dune Allen in the West to Seacrest and Alys Beach in the East. Enjoy the thrill of biking over rare coastal dune lakes and discovering a side of South Walton that’s difficult to see from a car.
For the slightly more adventurous, there’s Eastern Lake Trail, located within Point Washington State Forest. The trail system has 3-mile, 5-mile and 10-mile trail loops.
Bike rental and repair shops can be found throughout South Walton, including Bamboo Bicycle Company in Rosemary Beach, and Yellowfin Ocean Sports and 30A Bike Rentals, where you can also buy some official 30A gear.
