Blackwater Heritage State Trail
Among swamps, towering pine trees, and pastureland, this paved trail takes cyclists on a quiet tour through rural Florida. Formerly the Florida and Alabama Railroad built in the early 1900s, it's now the westernmost rail trail in the state, joining a long list of outstanding Florida walking, hiking and biking trails. It runs from Milton toward Whiting Field Naval Air Station, connecting to the Military Trail which extends another one-and-a-half miles. Cyclists enjoy the serene creek crossings found on wooden bridges with very few hills or grades. This is a pleasant trip for the whole family with lots of access.
