Pensacola Beach Trail Description

This is a multi-use trail that runs along Via de Luna Drive and Fort Pickens Road in Pensacola Beach, Florida. It mostly runs along the two roads but does offer some great ocean views along the way - never straying more than about 100 yards from the Gulf-front and most of the time is closer than that.

The area between the Santa Rosa Island Authority Maintenance office and Red Fish Blue Fish along Via de Luna Dr is not a marked wide trail but is only about 300 yards and there are sidewalks that can be utilized for walkers/runners or the road (for bikers).

Additionally, the trail continues to the bridge along Pensacola Beach Blvd towards Gulf Breeze from the intersection of Via de Luna Dr and Fort Pickens Rd. The bridge is bicycle and pedestrian friendly but there's not much once you get past the bridge area in Gulf Breeze for biking. Walking/running is supported via standard sidewalks beyond that area.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking can be found:

  • At the corner of Via De Luna and Fort Pickens Rd
  • At the western end of the trail at the Park West area
  •  Approximately .75 miles from the eastern end of the trail at the public beach parking lots
