First time here and loved it. The pier has been repaired and the trail is well maintained. I will definitely be back.

Bike trails in total make a beautiful meandering training workout. Wonderful in Autumn

This is a wonderful trail and it is a National Recreation Trail

Mostly flat easy paved/sidewalk route. I did 2 miles today. Lots of students use this walkway due to convenience to campus.

Pretty good trail. Muddy in some spots, and slightly difficult to see due to fallen leaves in others (I went in December). The E. O. Wilson boardwalk, which is part of this trail along the Blakeley River, is a highlight, as is the stretch where you’re on Champion Tree trail, which has the largest sweetbay and bigleaf magnolias in the state. The boardwalk at Squirrel’s Nest was a little sketchy (broken) in parts, but I still went to the end which is a nice spot to sit and grab a snack or whatever. Overall Blakeley is a nice state park and this trail is worth checking out.

This is a great, free trail for anyone. It leads down to the beach and has plenty of side trails for those who wish to explore. Plus, it's dog friendly. They are currently repairing some boardwalks and piers, so some places are cut off from the public. I will return to this trail. Great activity for the day.

Great trail to bike and walk on. Fully paved and has benches along the way to sit and watch the river.

The main trail is very easy and large enough for city workers to drive their trucks in for maintenance. Once u are down the trail a little ways, you definitely do not feel like you are in the middle of the city. There are a few side trails that take you to an old, beautiful, really huge live oak. another trail takes you to an old cemetary the boy scouts have cleaned up and marked the graves. Another trail is a pretty nature walk through the woods. These side trails are more narrow then the main trail. once you get to the Bay, the pier on the beach is all busted and you cannot walk out on it but it is definitely beautifuland secluded and worth the walk. I took my dog on the trail with me and he loved it.

Great multi-use trail, including playing Pokemon Go. It is a nice view of the river. Paved in various ways, so great for running and walking. It is still in the city, so not much wildlife other than squirrels and such.

Not an actual trail but it is an incredible experience to tour a battleship and learn about the history and see how it operated.

For the most part this was an easy hike. In some areas it gets a little confusing. They are adding roads or making improvements to the trails and they have cut through some of the trails. I think I probably did a number of these trails because I wasn't sure were I was going at times. Overall a decent trail and I loved exploring the history of the place.

Great little trail for kids and pets. There is a good small nature trail right off the cemetery that not many people realize is there. It will take you back to the main pavilion by old 98 or vice versa. Good walking trail.

Easy shaded trail along the riverbank.

First of all, this is a canoe trail. You get there by boat, kayak, or canoe. Second, the actual trailhead is not marked well but a novice can still find it. No need for sunscreen because you are under a beautiful canopy of delta lands most of the trip. The two Indian mounds are quite more than a bump but rather large mounds covered in a centuries worth of large growth. Beautiful trail through the Mobile delta. I would recommend. Just be forewarned, you will be in nature in its natural form. There are alligators, snakes, among other wildlife but that’s the point isn’t it?

Trail is attached to the others, this is just the name of one trail, I didn't see any squirrels lol but it was march, there are two building you can rent on this trail and its on a big hill by a swamp that has a pier and benches that go out to it, its very nice and secluded. Can be scary at night lol make sure you get a map from the guy at the entrance. 4 dollar entry fee.

Great trails. 4 dollar fee to get in, I asked the guy for a trail map and he had them, I suggest get a trail map from him if you don't have the alltrails app. many places to park and camp. had a gazebo at one part where you can park and cookout, this park is very nice with many trails and has a historic battle field that's very interesting to be on, cant climb on the fort due to keeping it preserved, respectfully don't. Trails were marked fine kinda. theres a road that goes around the entire battlefield. Squirrels lane has two shacks for rent that are nice for camping. Nice pier by the Tensaw river, has a pontoon boat you can get a ticket and ride on to the black foot mounds. Trails start by restrooms, the man at the front will have all info you need. Dogs are very welcome, took my two and barely leashed them due to no one on the trail. Has many benches to sit and eat at on trails. A+

Great walk in the woods in the middle of the city. Easy trail with some interesting historic spots along the way.

Nice lollipop loop featuring Civil War era iron furnace. Route entirely follows two-track old roads including an iron haul road and a stagecoach road. On the harder side of easy due to length and several small hills. There are also many single-track mountain bike trails here, but if you end up hiking on single-track you have lost the main loop. Overall, a quiet, fairly easy hike with an historical flair.

I don't known I would consider this a "trail." Spend the admission fee to explore the battleship, submarine and hanger. Well worth it. Tons of photo opportunities while learning about the US Navy and the role the battleship and submarine played in WWII. Many of the aircrafts in the hanger were on loan from the Pensacola Naval Air Mueseum so I am sure these are always changing so you will not likely see all the same artifacts and aircrafts every time. The only reason I did not give tgis 5 stars is because this was not a true trail to me and the real fun starts after paying for admission.

Such a wonderful place!

This is your basic trail. Nothing fancy and there’s no good views. The park is a great place with history but for a good hike you have better places like Oak Mountain and the Pinhoti trail in Alabama. This trail is easy and great for kids for a hour or two hike but if your looking for great views and more of a challenge look elsewhere.

Nice place for families and for groups of people with different fitness levels. Lots of activities in addition to trails.

This is in between a pleasant stroll in the woods and a hike, but closer to a stroll. Well maintained but not necessarily wonderfully marked for beginners.

boring 2 miles before an incredible payoff. follow the river upstream just a little and take the first creek. it will lead you feather hawk falls, which you will definitely want to check out if only hiking the 202. huge bluff, water dependent on rainfall

Very pretty area. This is an civil war battlefield so lots of history. Trails are well marked. It is hot and humid in July. One area to buy drinks. Would recommend you bring water.

Fun little trail with a lot of history. Saw a couple owls and a lot of lizzards.
