Watersound Trail Grand Opening Celebration
Northwest Florida’s leading resort and residential community developer, The St. Joe Company, will host a grand opening celebration of the Watersound Trail, Oct. 31 at 9:15 a.m. The 5-mile trail spans between Walton and Bay County with its trailhead located adjacent to Watersound Origins’ Village Commons.
As part of the grand opening of the new trail, The St. Joe Company is hosting a Wellness Fair with complimentary activities for the first 50 attendees, including flu shots, hearing screenings and mobile blood donations. Participants can also sign up to win t-shirts and other giveaways.
The Watersound Trail winds through St. Joe’s timberlands, and connects with Gayle’s Trails in the Panama City Beach Conservation Park. The Gayle’s Trails system, named in recognition of Panama City Beach Mayor Gayle F. Oberst, is a comprehensive trail system that the City of Panama City Beach plans to span from Walton County to Hathaway Bridge with a connection North to Pine Log Forest. There are currently approximately 13 miles of paved trail open to the public. The Watersound Trail grand opening is another step in the pursuit of the City’s goal to have the Gayle’s Trails system span approximately 30 miles throughout Panama City Beach.
