We started at the Visitor's Center near the Santa Rosa County Library, which is the address listed: 5533 Alabama Street. This is about mile marker 2.

This paved trail is a nice place to stretch your legs. We walked 8 miles starting at the equestrian parking area (to avoid the town traffic crossings). Snapped a few pics of pitcher plants, birds, and many rabbits along the way.

One of the best thing about Blackwater is the bike trail. Whether you peddle slow or fast, the paved trail will be a great way to get some exercise and see the countryside.

We always park at the "Welcome station" near the public library. If you go towards town you end up in downtown Milton near the river and the buildings and river are lovely. If you don't want to stop a lot head the other direction for miles of a nice country ride! If you are into geocaching bring your GPS because... More

This is a paved Rails to Trails path used by hikers, skaters, and bikers. It starts in town and stretches out into country to Whiting Field.

Bridges over small creeks and streams. We really enjoyed it. Only reason its a 4 star is cause there was losts of stops thru... More

Although it was a bit cold to hike, I can see where it would be a wonderful place to be at a warmer time of the year. I will try again after the summer heat is not as opressive.
