WalkingGreat!

Don't be confused by the base gate, you have to go all the way to the stop sign, through the drunk driver obstacle course of the Whiting Field Navy Base, and you can turn left, right before the gate. Love the boardwalk, saw a snapping turtle.

HikingGreat!

The review on the gate issue -- you turn left just before you would enter the base. See the travel trailers to your left at the stop sign, turn left, follow the road to the end and the trail starts right there....

I attempted this hike earlier this week, but when I got up there, it looked like the gate area of Whiting Field extended further west, so I could not make entrance to the trail head. Anybody running into this issue currently?

I know it's been said, but the entrance to this trail is before you get to Whiting! Nice, easy hike. Well-shaded with a few trees down along the trail. There's a few loose boards on the boardwalk and stairs so be careful. There are signs stating no dogs allowed, but there's a water bowl at the bathrooms (not accessible at this time) so

Good natural trail with an abundance of different trees and shrubs with markers to identify them. Elevated walk over for the marshlands and an actual Beaver dam with a lookout. Plenty of shade, just be careful with your footing the leaves can be slippery even when dry... really enjoyed this trail will come back.

This trail is really nice. The swamp and wetlands are stagnant but cool. It’s not well maintained but it’s in decent condition and the trail is well marked. I would say this trail is easy to moderate. A slight elevation change upwards toward the end. There were a couple of trees down but they’re nothing to complain about. It was a nice afternoon hike.

HikingOver grown

I really enjoyed the ease of *most* of this trail. There were three places that had trees fallen over the trail. There needs to be quite a bit of maintenance work, as it is a little overgrown and some of the structures need some TLC. I also was concerned about the super strong smell of decomp towards the cement overlook structure.

Decent hike, has a Frisbee golf next to the beginning. You do not need base access, you turn left just before guard shack. There is a boardwalk for a portion of it, I would call it more of a swamp than a creek. Trail starts off wide and open, but gets better and much more scenic. Took us about an hour and 25 minutes for our family at a leisurely pace. I'd recommend. If going during summer, apply bug spray!

We took this trial with 4 children to include one significantly special needs. It was a good walk, through a wood area, trails were well marked and maintained. some of the boards were loose in the wetlands .

This trail is CREEPY! My 5 year old and I decided to go hike this trail and it is completely unkept. Soooooo many trees have been knocked down, making it look barren in places, and there was caution tape on some of the benches. The s signs that they had to educate you about plants and wildlife were outdated and didn’t seem to apply to what we were viewing. I DO NOT recommend this trail. EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED.

If you stay in the left lane approaching the entrance to Whiting field and as soon as the concrete barriers end turn left to get to the trail. It is not on the base and it does not require a military ID. I havent been on the trail recently but I do work on Whiting.

Cannot hike this trail unless you have military ID. Tried going today and was turned around. Seems they moved the checkpoint forward and can no longer access as a civilian. Sad.

The left turn you make to the road that leads to the trailhead is literally in the security zone of the military installation. Don’t be intimidated by the concrete barriers as you approach the turn as they are part of the military security. Once at the trailhead signage is good. A lot of work was being done at the trail when we went but it was passable. If you go during the week, as we did, don’t be shocked by the roar of planes doing training since the trail is just off the approach to the runway. It’s an easy trail with a beautiful boardwalk. Not too difficult to do. We’d like to do it again in the spring.
