A very nice shady, well maintained asphalt trail. Usually very crowded either. The Ft Milton to Baldwin Terminus is a great 14 or so mile hike.

Great place for a 25 mile bike ride with no traffic! Plenty of parking too. There are only a few roads that you need to cross with caution. Other than that, it's smooth sailing!

This is the best place to ride a bike or go in-line skating or to take your dog for a walk. We frequent this very lovely trail often to exercise or meet up with friends!

One of the best places to ride your bike in Jax! Lots of open room and rest stops along the way. Go early in the morning and you might even see some native Florida wildlife along the way!
