Great trail built on old railroad track beds. Crosses the streets in Milton Florida and then meanders through the woodlands and streams out to Whiting Field Navy Base. A great asphalt paved trail to walk, run, or bike ride.

Like hiking? Well this park has it all! Picnicking, camping, canoeing all have a place here. Soft sandy beaches and tall trees to keep you cool.

Great little rails to trails! 9 mile paved with no more than a gentle slope going North. A number of roads crossing in the first mile, then it's really nice. Great family ride.

You can start this near Hwy 90 or near the library off Alabama Street. In any case the route is serene as you head North out of Milton, with seasonal variation. Personally, I prefer all seasons except summer. The humidity !! Bikes are welcome -
