Nice trail for bird watching, but not for an avid hiker. There are plenty of nesting areas out there and it's about 2 miles from Fort Pickens. Hard gravel that makes for a nice easy stroll.

Gorgeous trail- very unexpected to find so many trees and marsh areas on this bleak island. The stops along the way at the numerous batteries is fun too. If you come before 8:00 the main fort parking area is inaccessible, so I just parked by the fishing pier and backtracked on foot to the fort and trail beginning.

Started at parking lot. First part of Trail is along the beach but after the first fort, it turns into a nice gravel/dirt path that takes you all the way to the main batteries. Flat all the way, a bit windy along the shoreline. Public bathrooms available along hike. Great hike!

Good trail. not hard at all. Well maintained.

Lots of history here and some nice scenery.

A good easy trail, interesting birds and remnants. It was very hot the day we went, so hat, sunscreen, and water are a must.

It seems like every time I hike this trail there are huge mud puddles blocking the way. It seems like this trail is longer than just a half mile. Its fun though. Lots of cool scenery

Flat coastal trail. Lots of very interesting birds (including raptors). Getting there, you walk along part of the Florida National Scenic Trail. Can easily walk to the water as well. Take a tour of Fort Pickens at Gulf Islands National Seashore - the history lesson is very neat.
