Stoney Bayou 1 Loop
Stoney Bayou 1 is the first large body of water on the left (east) as you drive south toward the lighthouse. It is an empoundment that is managed for wildlife. The water levels will vary with the seasons. And when the locks are open, water levels will also fluctuate with the tides.
To begin this 3 mile loop, drive to the Double Dikes and hike towards the east on numbered trail 106. The last leg is along Lighthouse Road, but that’s OK, there will likely be activity on your right in Stoney Bayou 1.
