Came from the east end of the trail. Parked across 98 where there was a little mall. Pretty well kept the whole way and goes through Seaside, Alys Beach, Watersound, etc. It does get very busy with foot traffic and when we went there were a bunch of high schoolers who had rented bikes so avoiding them was...interesting. You can take neighborhood roads off the trail to avoid some of the heavy foot traffic areas and also see some of the beautiful houses in these neighborhoods. The places in between the towns and to the west of the busy areas are great. Lots of places to stop and grab a bite to eat if you like.
This was a fun simple trail that went in multiple directions. They all led to different beach access. It was very quite and peaceful and not challenging in the sense of elevation. So a great time for anyone :)
We started this trail at the trailside Visitors Center, Visitors has parking for about 8 cars and has a Bathroom inside. This is a Rail trail, very limited car crossings , the trail is about 12 foot wide and is well taken care of. Its ends a Whiting Field Naval Station. It has a good amount of shade trees along the way. Take your time and enjoy this one.
We started out at Grayton Beach State Park it cost 5.00 to park ,it has restrooms and beach access. This is in the middle of the trail. We wanted to take our time so we divided it into two days, Day 1 took us down the trail which follows the road , there is about a 4 foot divider between road and trail in most places. You cross over the road a few times but at crossing system that alerts drivers to stop and let bikes and walkers across. You will pass many rental homes,stores and Restaurants. If you are there early you can have a great coffee at the Bad *** coffee company. We stopped several times along the way at stores and went to the end and went to Stinkys Restaurant for lunch. Very Good. Then made our way back. Day 2 Went to the East it was very crowded lots of bikes and walkers. In one spot you have to get off your bike and walk thru, this is by the park that has many Food Trucks. This trail crosses over the road a few more times then the west side. Shops and Restaurants all over. Take your time and enjoy the trail.
Awesome trail for all levels of cyclists. Trail is well maintained and the majority of local motorists yield for crossing cyclists. Great countryside scenery for most of the ride. Mostly flat terrain in very beginner friendly.
Great ride with nice country views most of the way.
If you park near the “Pensacola Beach Ball Tower” and start your ride from there all the way through Fort Dickens it comes to about 20 miles. Beautiful ride with a safe bike lane most of the way. The old fort is not much to look at, but it is still a great ride. It is costly to go into the park via bicycle. I think it was $15 unless your military like me and then it is free.
Nice trail....well maintained. Saw turtles and birds. Benches and restrooms! Restrooms clean with hand sanitizer!!!!
Nice trail. Multiple access points with parking. Connects to military trail that dead ends at NAS Whiting field
Nice wide paved paths in a safe area. Some of the paths are in scenic wooded areas. Hopefully they’ll expand the trails in the future. Take the path to the west and check out Conservation Park. Miles of dirt trails, some smooth enough for our cruisers. It’s a beautiful place. We did see a big cat cross the paved path behind us as we were leaving.
Great trail, busy beautiful!!
Definitely worth a quick visit for photos. Compared to other brick roads I've traveled, it's relatively smooth. I run 23s.
