If this trail exists, it exists only on private (i.e. 'NO TRESPASSING') land. The directions to the trailhead are all blocked by electronic gates and No Trespassing / Private Property sign.

This trail should be deleted from the registry so no other folks drive all the way over there to be disappointed.

Was station at Eglin AFB for EOD School, but opted to live in Destin. Literally went out fishing in the bay every, single, weekend! If you have a military ID, you can cart your boat over to the marina on base, if not, there is a free one (space tentative) on the back side of Destin, and one over by the Emerald Grand (biggest building in Destin.. can't miss it) for a nominal fee (parking is limited). White Point is an amazing spot to fish, situate yourself about 300 yards off the point closer to the bridge and you're guaranteed to tear into some Speckled Trout, Pompano Jack or Spanish Mackerels! Many many many bayous to be explored, and Crab Island at the end of the busy season is Redfish heaven! Seeing a school of hundreds of reds moving around is pretty wild!
