This is a well maintained trail made from an old railroad track. It has bathrooms along iit which is convenient, and a couple of benches. It is about 8 miles long with scattered signs that identify various plants along the way, including the infamous carnivorous pitcher plant. Nice trail to ride bicycles or walk beginning south route 90, downtown Milton.

I spent a pleasant morning biking this path. it is a well maintained paved path which had walkers, rollerbladers, and other bikers using it. There is town and country scenery, shady and sunny areas. It is a flat ride and it has many spots to stop and sit to catch your breath. There is a visitor's center and several restrooms... More

The Blackwater Heritage State Trail is miles and miles of the best Mother Nature has to offer! We go almost everyday after school for a walk or to play in some of the best parks. We fish or just go to feed the ducks. Something for everyone to enjoy.

You can start this near Hwy 90 or near the library off Alabama Street. In any case the route is serene as you head North out of Milton, with seasonal variation. Personally, I prefer all seasons except summer. The humidity !! Bikes are welcome -

I love this trail. It is maintained well and goes for miles. Bug repellent is a must as there are several "wet" areas you travel over. I was walking solo (with my dog) and happened upon a homeless gentleman sleeping by the trail once and he was not happy to see me but I have never encountered him again. I... More

We finally loaded up our bikes and hit the Blackwater Heritage Trail. We put in at the Bagdad end of the trail. Limited parking there, but that is not the main place for parking anyway. The ride is very pleasant but once you hit Hwy 90, you get in to the area where you have frequent stops for crossing roads.... More

Nice bike ride, about 9 miles one way. A very short section on the north end is in very bad repair, lots of tree roots. But this is relatively minor. Several toilets along the way. There are trees along most if the route to break the wind and provide some shade.

Nice rail to trail. I have been here about 6 times, and it is very nice, with a few Naval Flyers overhead. Watch for dogs, not on leashes. Highly recommend if you don't like street (dangerous) biking. Gradual slope up as you head North. First 2 miles has numerous street and highway intersections, but then you get to the better... More

Good ole outdoors time in the sun and breeze. What you would see, wooded area, creek beds, and little farm houses. Mile markers are on the trail so that you know how much you have traveled. There are park benches dotted here and there, a small playground next to the public library. Also an information center in that same area.... More
