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+

Well kept trail. I usually combine this with other trails and do about 5 miles. Beautiful South Alabama forests! However, the trailhead is not exactly where the map says it is. The first part of what is shown is a road and the trailhead begins at the end of the road.

Very nice trail. Many more to chose from in the park. The ranger said about 26-28 miles total in park.

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.

My husband and I really enjoyed ourselves. The area is just so beautiful. I hope to one day stay overnight in the Squirrel's Nest.

There are a series of trails located in this state park. It is Blakeley State Park. Cost is 4 dollars. Trails are marked and well maintained. There are horse trails and camp grounds as well. The only negative is the disgusting bathrooms which is full of ants, roaches, spiders etc.

Nice trails. The Jacque Pate trail is pretty awesome.

This is the first southern hike I've done, and it definitely didn't disappoint. There are a ton of different routes in this area. Many different historic sites to check out, and lots of information on the native plants and animals available throughout the trail. Very pretty too!

This was a really nice trail. The only negative is that it cost $4 per adult and $3 per child to take the trails.

Went in January and weather was perfect! It could get warm in summer time. Lots of trails and civil war history. Boardwalk on Tensaw River is nice. Staff very nice and give maps of trails.

Around 10 miles of beautiful, well maintained trails. I did about 8 miles and enjoyed them all. Located in Blakeley State park. The staff at the park was very friendly. Great hiking, cool historical sites, and up kept facilities.

Easy trail with a few technical ones here and there - mixes with dirt roads - hard to get lost - best trail runs anywhere near mobile - I always park right at this trail head where the attached directions take you - it is 4 dollars per person to enter the state park

We hiked here for the first time last weekend. A excellent hike with wonderful surprises along the way. We are planning a return trip, this time spending the night camping too.

Great scenery. Hard to get lost, as one trail will lead you to the next and eventually out. Tried multiple different routes. Very nice place.

Great hike with some elevation changes, down into the bottoms and back up to the bluff ridge.

This was a great trail with some relatively steep inclines for the area, some great views and lots of variety. Site allows primitive camping and open air cabins for rent as well. Only drawback is the flooding in the lowlands makes it difficult to cross, unless you want to get extremely muddy, so we turned back and took an alternate path to complete our hike. All in all, a great site! Will go again.

Very good hiking, and all the sites to see were very cool. Since it is a state park you have to pay to get in. But other than that very nice.

Very interesting little piece of history that took place in the area. From hiking to just sight seeing it was an overall great experience for a fall afternoon/evening. Would like to go back earlier in the day to see more. The ghost town was by far the coolest thing there. had an actual working well and a tree that people were hung from in the 1800's. The town's old jail is actually still in tact- the genuine concrete that is. highly recommend!

This is an easy trail with lots to see. There's a spring feed creek. A wet lands area with a rustic Boardwalk. Look for the giant magnolia tree. It is a special type of magnolia that is indigenous to the local area.

Great trail. As a boardwalk area over the marsh and a crystal clear spring fed creek along the way. Look for the giant magnolia trees. They are a beautiful species of the common ones we are all use to seeing.

Went in mid January when the weather was in the upper 50's and practically perfect for a hike. One of the best hikes for the area (which unfortunately doesn't have a lot). Good for families. Very easy hike, most people will most likely not strain themselves whatsoever. Best part about this place was the peacefulness and privacy, I don't think we saw more than 15 people in the 5 hours we were there.
