Work is being completed on the Catman Road Trailhead parking lot. When completed, the new parking area will add additional parking spaces as well as having a nice coat of asphalt surface. The work should be completed soon and I'll keep you posted when it is open to the public.
A brand new parking lot is being constructed over on County Road 2 (near the Gulf State Park Golf Course). This new parking lot will provide a needed parking area for trail users accessing Gulf Oak Ridge Trail from the west. As many of you know, the old parking area near the wooden bridge is very sandy and the right-of-way along the highway is quite narrow. This new parking area will keep you from getting stuck in the sand and out of the road while you unload your bike. I will post this parking lot opening when it happens.
Both of these parking improvements have been needed and are certainly going to be appreciated.
