Overseas Heritage Trail

Will be staying at Southernmost Hotel and plan to run while I’m there. Was looking at a Google map and noticed that I can run from the hotel, jump on the Overseas Heritage Trail at Higgs Beach Park, stay on the trail past Smathers Beach, continue along the coast following the trail next to South Roosevelt Blvd, returning on Truman, white St. and back to the hotel. According to Google it’s about 8 miles, but wondering if anyone has biked, walked/run this rout?

I've done a similar run but avoid going "inland." I start at the corner of Duval and Front going all the way to South Street. Then I make a left there, then a right on Reynolds for three blocks to the end where Higgs Beach begins. I run along Atlantic Ave to Bertha, make a right and then left and I am at the beginning of Smathers. I run along here until I'm across the street from the airport/West Martello tower where I turn around and come back.

Coming back I will usually make a few side trips along Seminole to get back to South Street.

It's a little more scenic and doing this it's between eight and eight and a half miles.. And there's a water fountain and a bathroom next to Salute, a restaurant on Higgs.
