Almost a mile from one parking lot to the other and then back again. You can also walk on the path next to the road to make a half mile loop out of it. Lots of side trails if you like to go exploring - including down over the railroad tracks to the beach.

Board walk ok. Trails around not marked or man made. Nice area. Needs some major work.

This was a beautiful short hike. It is on a boardwalk so it is pretty smooth and shady. They have indicators explaining what you will see on your adventure.

Lots o'steps for the knees!

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

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

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.

We go here quite often. It’s steep but it’s stairs the whole way. Gorgeous view of the water and pet friendly.

I grew up coming here, East Hill boy. First Ill say, this place is not used as much as it should be. There are signs saying its under renovation, but I dont see much work happening. The stairs are cumbersome for people out of shape, so a more logical approach would be replacing the current steps and employing a ramp system. Clear out a few trees and create a view, update the area and bam, our forgotten bay can be loved properly. Now for the walks.....great walk along the boardwalk where some beautiful scenery comes into the view. You do have access to leave the boardwalk to go on the coast, but be cautious of the railroad tracks, trains DO come trough often. Its a great area of Pensacola that needs some attention, but very enjoyable as it is!! Its one of my favorite places to go relax on a nice day...

Great trail, beautiful view of the bay.

Fairly easy save for the stairs. Has a beach access but you have to cross over railroad tracks. Also has two entrances with parking lots.

Climbing and straight boardwalk with access to the beach. Views of the water are throughout the walk. Dogs on leash but remember that it is predominantly a boardwalk so there is no place for them to do their business without leaving the boardwalk. There are places to do that. Makes you sweat but it's a good up and down walk and will help with stamina building. You can circle back and repeat the walk to parking areas or you can walk on side of roadway (plenty of room) to return to car. There are two parking areas for both ends.

Nice enough walk, but short and easy. Nothing moderate about it.

If you're walking the boardwalks, it's easy to get lost. No signs back to the parking lots. Trash cans were overflowing when I went. Felt unsafe going by myself.

Nice boardwalk down to the water. smaller trails on the side seem nice.

We enjoy bringing our dogs on this trail. Nice scenery and they love the beach. Highly recommend.

Awesome board walk! Came out here with my mother, and we enjoyed walking the board walk along the bay. No one was out here, and all we could hear was the wind and water! There is also a hiking trail that runs along the side of the board walk!
