Beautiful place to visit, a lot of cool things to see while learning. Worth going! Loads of walking so bring water and wear comfortable shoes and clothing. My husband, child and I went and we spent the whole day walking and exploring.

Easy gravel trails with a little sand. Lots of wild life with a mix of views of the ICW and on the other side the Gulf. Public restrooms and water fountains long the trails

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

Love this trail it’s a beautiful place!

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!

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.
