Conservation Park Loop Trail is a 4.7 mile loop trail located near Panama City, Florida that features a great forest setting and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, and trail running and is accessible year-round.
This park has always been well maintained when we visit. The different trails are well marked. The bathrooms are very clean. We had a standoff with a snake on one of the boardwalks, but that's about the only run in we've had with any wildlife out there. There's a bicycle rental shop right up the road from the park entrance with very reasonable prices if you're interested in checking out the packed limestone trail on the perimeter of the park as well.
Did the blue trail and the palmetto trail. 7.69 mi. Very well marked and clean trail. Would be great for the family!!
This park is very well maintained. The trails are very clearly marked. The bathrooms at the beginning are clean and well stocked. You can do a short trail of just over a mile or a serious hike that's over 11 miles. Each trail is a little different so you can return and enjoy is numerous times!!!
Mountain bike fun!! Great workout!
wasn't visually stimulating...but the trails were nice.
On the east side of Hwy 77 is the Pine Log, Crooked Creek Trail Head. 4.5 and 10 miles trails. The wife and I did the 10 miles. OMG did it do a number on us. Word to the wise, TAKE LOTS of WATER with you. Nice Sunday in June with temps around 90 degrees. The trail is more suited for mountain bikes, but is a good hike also. Some areas are grown up, but the trail is clearly marked. Through forest, and fire roads. Spotted one deer and lots of hog and other animal signs. Will do again, but on a much cooler day and backpack full of water. A good filtration device is highly recommended as your travel companion. We found ourselves 5 miles out and out of water, when I stumbled onto a path to Crooked Creek. Had to leave the hiking path, but it was only 50 feet away.
I walked through here mid-August 2013. Naturally for this area, there was little-to-no elevation gain and some areas were a bit flooded from the summer rains. But these things didn't hinder my hike, which -- while uneventful -- was quiet, secluded, and peaceful. As a Florida newcomer, the well-maintained boardwalk through the mangrove trees was definitely highlight of the trip.
Decent trails for Panama City Florida. No spectacular views and a lot of walking through man made forests, but there are some nice wooden walk paths over cool swamp areas. Dog friendly. Primitive camp grounds are not primitive.
