Do not waste your time. There is no way to get to the beach and very trashy. It’s a walking trail filled with graffiti- political and very inappropriate statements.

Could be a nice walk and bay experience if you look past the political propaganda, sexually explicit graffiti on the boardwalk, and people smoking weed in the parking lot. Beach was littered with cigarette butts and other trash.

The area has boardwalk trails, which are nice. However, they have been highly vandalized with political and hate speech. They need to be repainted. The boardwalk is a decent trail to follow, but it is a little creepy. Clearly, people have partied under the boardwalk...More

This is truly a hidden gem in Pensacola. Great place to explore the natural beauty of the bay area and refresh the senses. The trails are wooden walkways and stairs which give you a good work out while absorbing your surroundings. I am a local...More

nice place, natural area on bay side, but it is undergoing renovations at this time, it isn't closed but you have to stay on boardwalk, nice boardwalk so you can get to beach without falling and tumbling down a big hill

Better views of bluffs are found off the boardwalks and following the many trails in the surrounding woods. Be sure to cross the RR tracks carefully and quickly, because the line is active.

This is a beautiful wooded area to walk, however, there have been many problems here. Not great for walking in late afternoons and do not suggest going alone. Is a shame because it is truly a beautiful place and boardwalk.

Nice place for outdoor activity with wooden boardwalk going down to the beach and back up. There are a couple geocaches nearby that belong to a chain of caches in the area. We managed to find a few.

Bayview has the best dog park in Pensacola, it has a gated section for dogs to run off leash and enjoy the water. The dog park on Pensacola Beach is a joke, it’s extremely tiny and not worth going to.

Yes, on a leash, is great for dogs. There is also a dog park at Bay View Dog Park. Then there is Pensacola Beach Dog park. Have fun and enjoy.
