Partly shaded, wide, flat trail with access to water front. Trail runs adjacent to Blue Angel Park with access to the beach about 1.8 from the trail head. Good for hiking or biking (recommend appropriate tires for sand) in the local area. Bring plenty of water and there are no locations to rest.

It was a perfect trail for a family! We took our pup and it was very well kept and clean! Oh, the view was beautiful too!

Nice hike but definitely do it in the morning. Wx underground says it’s currently 87 but feels like 101 with 76% humidity... Should have begun before sunrise. There was a nice breeze by the water but the second half was downright hot. Bring lots of water.

A fun loop. A mid way swim at the point. I wore sandals on this trip. It can get muddy after a rain.

Nice trail, some shaded areas and some heavy sun. There are a few patches of deep/loose sand, but you can carefully walk around them. If you go mid-day, bring plenty of water.

Trails are open. Covid-19 signs are posted at the beginning of the trails. Trails were dry after a heavy rain two days prior. Shade is sparse.

Had a fantastic time. Great for wildflowers! I saw lots of carnivorous plants, blooming vaccinium, hypericum, false rosemary, and others. Parts were muddy, but it was easy to walk around or wasn’t that bad in the first place. Worth the 3 dollars, in my opinion. (I actually paid 5 since I didn’t have ones. I definitely don’t regret it).

Relaxing, easy trail. Muddy for first mile but plenty of opportunity to avoid the deepest bits. Great views of Perdido river. At about 3.5 miles, veer off trail before it loops to the East to take in the views of the perdido river and Innerarity Point. Pitcher plants have not started blooming.

Great trail! Dog and kid friendly. We’re some muddy spots that weren’t too difficult to avoid getting muddy. Some really beautiful spots on the water, particularly about 1.7 miles in.

If it’s been raining you need to bring water shoes because your feet will get wet. You can go slow and get around most mud holes.

This park is known as a habitat for endanged pitcher plants. Nice, easy out and back trail on a boardwalk. You'll see water about a mile in. There are longer trails to around Perdido Bay. The scenery is beautiful with low palms among tall yellow pines. We spotted several mushrooms. We look forward to visiting during the spring and fall for the wildflower displays.
