Great for trail running. I didn't expect to find something like this in Pensacola. Many different paths and are all well marked by spray paint.

Seemed short, but decent walk for my dogs. Also enjoyed taking some photos down by the train tracks

It was nice and well marked.

Went during August... lots of spiders!!

pretty short but the views were nice

certainly was warm but there were quite a few spots to stop and c some history

to short but if ur looking to work out it was a nice outdoor "gym"

certainly gonna go back to hit the bike trails it leads too

super short but the history behind it was neat

Great ADA compliant and family friendly trail that is a mix of gravel and hardwood. Travels through a maritime forest then to a more coastal area alongside Little Lagoon. The trail is actually a little shorter than a mile.

Hiked a large part of this trail in mid-July after a rainstorm. The heat and humidity had subsided so it wasn't bad. The trails are very well maintained, options of paved asphalt, raised wooden trails, or primitive dirt trails. Little elevation change, restrooms, and water all along the way. There are some beautiful scenic spots and amazing ecosystems along the way. The reason this gets a 5 star over a four is the wildlife. Saw several snakes, frogs, turtles, and birds. Even saw a bobcat on the wooden trail. Did not see alligators or armadillos but according to campers there are plenty around the area so be cautious and aware at all times. Definite must for any outdoorsy person in the Gulf Shores area.

Yeah, never doing this again. Maybe if some local hoodlums would stop writing obscene things on the walkway it would be maybe 3 stars.

Great place for casual ride.

Trail is covered in obscure graffiti. Very bizarre. Would not recommend the trail. Pathway to beach is cool

Excellent trail system for walking, running or biking. Now that the boardwalks are complete you can easily walk or bike to the beach or fishing pier. Lots of wildlife viewing opportunities.

I hiked the Jeff Friend Trail and part of the Pine Beach trail via the Centennial connector trail. The Jeff Friend loop and part of the Pine Beach trail are well maintained with great views of Little Lagoon and Gator Lake. The Centennial trail connector has some overgrown areas and in need of maintenance on some of the boardwalks. All of the trails have good interpretive and directional signage throughout.

It’s a beautifully scenic trail for a good run/walk/hike. Easy course, but some sandy areas make for a small fun challenge every now and then.

Great to walk to the beach with no buildings or people in sight. Very east walk.

took my dog's there it's pretty cool

Very easy trails. 4.7 miles in the heat. All paved or boardwalk

It’s a nice quiet boardwalk. I would not recommend for an afternoon hike with the sun overhead as the trees do not reach over the path. The water pipes emptying along the way give it a nice ambiance. Very easy walk with shady spots to stop and rest at along the way. Not a lot of wildlife, only saw a handful of birds, and there are black flies which bite.

well maintained. great for the little ones.

Nice little trip to take the family on if you have a spare half hour or want to picnic. The little beach area is clean, you do have to cross a rail road track but it is highly visible both ways so you would be able to see it coming. I wouldn't recommend going at night there is no lighting past the main entrance, and us local teens sometimes congregate at night and can get loud.

My kids loved this trail! We didn’t get to finish it but we are going back Sunday!

Love this trail it’s a beautiful place!

My husband and our dog walked this trail today. We had such a good time. It was beautiful and our dog really enjoyed it. Most of the walk is on an elevated platform which is very nice especially if you want to run. You also don’t have to worry so much about snakes. Which we saw several down below us in the water. It was a beautiful little hike and we enjoyed seeing all the wildlife.

Talk about a Beautiful ride. Wide pathways to accommodate passing when needed. Lightly used on the day I went, everyone I saw was friendly and outgoing. The trail is well maintained and clean. Make the trip if you are able. Well worth it.

nice trail run. clearly marked. great for dogs!

I used this for a trail run. It was relatively flat. The boardwalk portion was fun and made the run go faster.
