I absolutely love this beautiful and serene trail. It’s relatively flat and is a wide path. There are three bathrooms and water fountains along the way, which is very convenient. I highly recommend!

Easy, flat, and straight. There are plenty of benches and lots of shade, but just two restrooms and one water fountain on the entire trail. Also, the last two miles are actually on Whiting Field (military property). All riders must have helmets, and no firearms are permitted.

Quiet paved walking biking trail. Not much to see but good to get out and exercise. The pathway is in excellent condition.

Great bike trail! Wide asphalt path with room for passing. Very serene with not much in the way of views. Covered for most of the way with few open areas. Very well maintained. A couple of bathrooms along the trail is a nice touch. Would do this again.

Talk about a Beautiful ride. Wide pathways to accommodate passing when needed. Lightly used on the day I went, everyone I saw was friendly and outgoing. The trail is well maintained and clean. Make the trip if you are able. Well worth it.

As someone from the Pacific Northwest I definitely wouldn’t call this hiking but it is a very nice well-maintained trail for walking. I took my two-year-old in her stroller for an afternoon walk and I think we’re going to come down here more often.

Nice, paved, wide trail. I live footsteps away - just about 1.5 miles in from the beginning so I'm on a couple times a week. Slight elevation gain between historic Milton and the NAS. Best used for biking but loses a star for all the stop signs early on and the couple of intersections with Munson hwy.

Very nice wide paved trail. I was the only person walking it; everyone else was zooming past me on bikes. It's an incredibly long out and back, with multiple areas to park your car and jump on it. On the portion I did, much of it was facing east/west-ish and the setting sun was directly in my eyes on the way back. I recommend going as late as possible in the summer months due to the heat

Paved entire way. Hard on the knees unless you walk along the edge of the path a ways. Easily accessible from many locations. Easy trail.

My Fiance and I rode this trail and it a was beautiful and peaceful ride. We ate at the hot dog hut on Stewart st after and the owner was so friendly. This is definitely a place to come back to.

I have biked this trail before and remembered how relatively flat it is with pretty views all good the way. This time we sidewalk surfed this on our new longboards and had a blast! Great trail we'll be back!

Nice trail to ride that doesn't require biking up steep hills. It's perfect for people that just want a leisurely long trail. There are a few bridges that cross over small creeks. I have seen many snakes in the creeks and along the trail route so be on the lookout for dangerous wildlife. I have biked this trail at least 3 times and every time has been wonderful.

9 mile paved biking/walking/horseback riding trail. I love this trail! I rode nearly every weekend. It is well maintained and very safe for going it alone.
