I've done this trail 3x now. Last year just out to the Base, & this year 2 times with the wife. Great ride, the last leg before the base is the only trying hill & it was a Very windy day, but that made for a Zoom back to town Had lunch at Cosse's when we finished.
We had planned to ride the Pensacola beach trail, but changed our minds after seeing the beach crowds we would have to navigate around. Instead, we drove out to Milton and rode the Blackwater Heritage State Trail. So glad we did! We entered the trail at the visitor center in Milton and rode to the naval air station and back twice, giving us about 32 miles total. The trail was very well maintained, with occasional benches and several restrooms well spaced all along the length of the trail. Before getting out of Milton (perhaps the first mile after the visitor center), we had to cross several small-town roads, after which the crossings were less frequent but a bit more challenging. Nothing we couldn't handle, though.
The countryside we passed through along the ride was mostly pretty and interesting. When we got close to the air station, we felt like we were vaguely surveilled by a helicopter, but no one approached or bothered us. Overall, a great ride that we would gladly do again!
The only 20+ mile trail in the area. Cobble together this trail and the Pensacola Beach trail and the ample bike lanes in between and toward Ft Pickens and you get a really fun and scenic ride. Pay attention to wind direction and speeds.
January 2023 We started at the library and because we didn't want to bike through town. The parking is limited. Further up there is a large lot which may be better. The trail is asphalt and level. No roots through the pavement and very little debris. Wonderful trail.
A nicely wide paved trail that essentially takes you around one side of Gulf State Park.
While camping in the area we jumped on Fort Morgan Road Trail a few times. First time was just to ride it. The numerous stop signs, if bikers adhere to them, breaks up the potential for 'racing' but there are stretches of the trail where you can just coast and let the wind hit your face. Each trip thereafter on the trial we would be on a journey for geocaching. This trail leads you right into the Gulf State Park trails as well.
Great trail with access and parking near the Tom Thumb convenience store. The trail runs east for a short distance, and then West towards the Gulf Shores national seashore. At this point it is connected, through a bike lane that runs the length of the national seashore. Traffic is slow, so it is a very scenic and enjoyable ride. Out and back from the convenience store is approximately an 18 to 20 mile ride. Additional miles can be added on by taking the trail that connects on the west end of the seashore into Pensacola and all out to the Fort Pickens national park.
Love this ride that takes you through a canopy of trees to open areas filled with wild flowers. You can extend the ride by heading up Copter Road that circles around NAS Whiting Field and through cotton fields.
Recently I traveled along the Eastern Shore Trail as a nostalgic experience with the hopes of returning and riding the length of the trail along Mobile Bay. And to confirm what others have said about the trail condition. I was utterly disappointed. What Trail Link describes as a beautiful bike trail is nothing more than a narrow unmaintained sidewalk with dangers fraught at driveways and intersections. (It may not even be worthy of that dismal description.) Please remove it from the list of other very fine and noteworthy trails.
The trail was in good shape and I grabbed some of the geocaches along the way. Coming back to town I had a little headwind but wasn’t to bad.
Did the entire trail along with picking up all but just a few geocaches along the trail. Nice riding, just a few street crossings and different scenery along the way.
My wife and I rode from Daphne to Fairhope and back, 18 miles on Sunday morning. The area is beautiful and very friendly. The trail… it is at best a sidewalk! In some areas, additional width has been added but in doing so has significant space creating very real hazards to road bikes! The path cross every driveway, has poor transitions from the path to road crossing. It is to narrow to deal with oncoming walked or joggers. It is impossible ride at a comfortable pace, so after about three miles, we got of the trail and rode in the roadway.
