Come out and enjoy a naturalist-guided ecotour by bike with Kayak Amelia.  The bike tour will follow gently rolling nature trails through tree hammocks, pine flatwoods and ancient dunes teeming with Florida's diverse plants and wildlife. You are welcome to bring your own bike. The round trip distance is approximately six miles.  Bikes will be provided by Kayak Amelia but you are welcome to bring your own bike.    You will visit the popular mile-and-half-long Boneyard Beach which is famous for the bleached, salt-washed skeletons of oaks and cedar trees that once grew along the shore.  Archaeologists have also found fossilized mammoth bones on the beach nearly as big as the trees.  Shells abound on the beach.  Bring your camera as this is a popular place used by professional and amateur photographers alike.

Some of the trail is unpaved.
