Fairly easy save for the stairs. Has a beach access but you have to cross over railroad tracks. Also has two entrances with parking lots.

Did this one last year. Waited a few days after it rained but much of it was still wet with large pools of water. Some parts of the trail can get confusing because some of the trail markers are covered in brush making it difficult especially when there are two paths to take. Because of the humidity and bugs I'd suggest waiting until winter for this one.

well worth the hike for the view

Pretty good for the Florida Panhandle. More elevation change than you'd expect and a short stretch along the river.

Apple maps really struggles with navigation around UWF; park in the NW corner of lot G by the Anthropology and Environmental Science building. Trailhead is behind the building.

great walk, areas under construction created less hiking area

Beautiful, easy trail. Enjoyed the solitude of a scenic lunch at the point watching osprey dive for fish.

Climbing and straight boardwalk with access to the beach. Views of the water are throughout the walk. Dogs on leash but remember that it is predominantly a boardwalk so there is no place for them to do their business without leaving the boardwalk. There are places to do that.
Makes you sweat but it's a good up and down walk and will help with stamina building. You can circle back and repeat the walk to parking areas or you can walk on side of roadway (plenty of room) to return to car. There are two parking areas for both ends.
