This pathway begins about a half mile south of Patrick Air Force Base and runs south along the east side of highway A1A through South Patrick Shores and the city of Satellite Beach to the intersection of Desoto Parkway, a distance of about 3 miles, all of it along the Atlantic Ocean. Among the sites of interest along this trail are Hightower Beach Park, roughly 18 acres of prisine beach and dune habitat protecting roughly 1/2 mile of coastline with an observation platform and about 560 feet of boardwalk so visitors can view the habitat and scan the native vegetation for migratory songbirds and other species that reside there.
