The Bellamy Bridge Heritage Trail is a 0.5 mile nature trail following a historic road first used by the Spanish in 1686. This trail has its own ghost. The Bellamy Bridge Heritage Trail gives the hiker a chance to explore a Florida Floodplain Swamp and the upper Chipola River. Being in a floodplain, the area is subject to flooding and one should call Jackson County Parks Department at: (850) 718-0437. If you are lucky, you may see a wild hog or alligator. Make sure you bring bug spray.

Nice easy trail for the whole family. Also neat to learn the history of the area and the possibility of seeing the Bellamy ghost.

Was there today with jeep club. It was muddy but fun. Didn't realize we would be crossing water to see the bridge . WEAR water proof shoes!!! But had a lot of fun

This is a great little nature trail that kids will enjoy. Not only do you have a chance to see a wild hog or alligator, but you may also see a ghost. This trail offers beautiful views of a floodplain forest and the surrounding area just getting there is beautiful and full of history. My wife and I hiked the trail for the first time today, and we saw tracks and areas were wild hogs had rooted. Being caught in a downpour, our pictures did not turn out. I plan to return and take more when it is not raining. For more on this trail visit Dale Cox's site at:
