Fort Pickens Trail is a 8.2 mile out and back trail located near Gulf Breeze, Florida and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, and mountain biking and is accessible year-round.
Gorgeous trail- very unexpected to find so many trees and marsh areas on this bleak island. The stops along the way at the numerous batteries is fun too. If you come before 8:00 the main fort parking area is inaccessible, so I just parked by the fishing pier and backtracked on foot to the fort and trail beginning.
Started at parking lot. First part of Trail is along the beach but after the first fort, it turns into a nice gravel/dirt path that takes you all the way to the main batteries. Flat all the way, a bit windy along the shoreline. Public bathrooms available along hike. Great hike!
Good trail. not hard at all. Well maintained.
Lots of history here and some nice scenery.
Nice easy hike if your here hike it
A good easy trail, interesting birds and remnants. It was very hot the day we went, so hat, sunscreen, and water are a must.
It was a fun trail. Flat but after exploring the fort we found a bunker climbed to the top for s great view! Very nice trail beautiful views, perfect!
