Seacrest Beach Fl. is a quiet residential community with some of the highest sand dunes on 30-A, so high that one can easily view dolphins swimming in the distance. One of the least developed and most scenic of the dune lakes, Camp Creek, is located on the western edge of the community and extends north and south of 30-A. Legend says that the Creek Indians lived in this area and that the lake was named in their honor. What a perfect destination for your beach vacation.
Seacrest beach vacations provide the unique opportunity to find the explorer within. Home to one of northwest Florida’s hidden treasures -- Deer Lake State Park -- Seacrest offers undeveloped, pristine beaches and lakes ideal for those who prefer solitude and natural beauty. Hikers can wander through 1,700 acres of unmarked trails that meander through native vegetation.
Seagrove and Blue Mountain Beach, FL
(from the forest's website linked above) Point Washington State Forest contains one of the hiking trails (Eastern Lake Bike/Hike Trail) that is included in the Florida Division of Forestry's Trailwalker Hiking Program. The Eastern Lake Trail System was the first trail established on the forest. This trail system consists of 3 double track loop trails. The hiker or bicyclist can travel the 3.5, 5 or 10 mile loop. Access to the trail system is located at the parking lot and trail head on C.R. 395.
In addition, a green way trail system that crosses the forest is being developed. This trail will provide connections to Grayton Beach State Park, Deer Lake State Park, Topsail Hill State Preserve, Butler Elementary School and numerous residential developments. Upon completion, this trail system will provide over 27 miles of trails for recreational use.
