This is a nice easy trail that takes you through some beautiful wooded area and wetlands, with the benefit of being about 6 feet off the ground.

Went while visiting our Marine for Thanksgiving! Beautiful weather. Nice walk, saw an armadillo, no other wildlife. All in all, a really nice walk with the family.

Very nice easy trail. Took my 65 year old mother on it and she did fine.

They’ve also done some recent maintenance and replaced some of the damaged boards.

Literally the only downside is that it’s hard to find a place to pee.

Never knew this was a trail. The boardwalk section is great if the water is running and the place has water. When there is water, there are frogs and snakes and turtles. Not so great in the summer as there are only a few place to sit in the shade for rest.

Awesome boardwalk hike. This is a real hidden treasure for Pensacola. The entire path is a very wide boardwalk, and there is water streaming around it creating a marsh. This is an absolute haven for birds!
