Hugh S. Branyon Backcountry Trail
The Backcountry Trail project is a collaborative effort between the City of Orange Beach, Gulf State Park and property owners along the trail's alignment.
Historically, many parts of the trail were utilized by the area's indigenous peoples, as well as explorers and settlers of the region.
The Backcountry Trail is steeped in lore and local legend. For decades, a creature believed to be part man/part wildcat --The "Catman" -- has allegedly lurked along the paths and swamps of the backcountry woodlands.
