Blackwater Heritage State Trail

Westernmost rail trail in the state

Blackwater Heritage State Trail is officially designated as part of Florida’s Statewide System of Greenways and Trails. This is the westernmost rail trail in the state, extending from the small community of Milton in the south to Whiting Field Naval Air Station (NAS) in the north. Managed by the Florida Park Service, it also connects to the Military Trail (also identified on map) which is managed by the US Navy. It’s hard to tell where one ends and the other begins. It’s mostly a rural trail with only a few dwellings at some of the cross roads once you leave Milton and before you get on the military base. There are some nice creek crossings on wooden bridges with few hills or grades. This is a pleasant trip for the whole family with lots of access and safe riding. Blackwater Heritage is 7.0 miles, non-motorized paved (asphalt 12’ wide)

Length: 7.0 miles Difficulty: 2 Location: 30.631587, -87.039756
