Blackwater Heritage State Trail

Welcome to Blackwater Heritage State Trail

Blackwater Heritage State Trail, the westernmost state rail-trail, winds through the historic town of Milton and extends eight miles north to join the U.S. Navy's 1.5-mile Military Heritage Trail, which ends at the Naval Air Station Whiting Field. The more than nine miles of paved trail offer an enjoyable trip through a quaint North Florida town and out into the countryside where wooden bridges cross several creeks and native wildflowers dot the landscape. Designated as a National Recreation Trail® and part of Florida's State Greenways and Trails System, this paved trail is the perfect venue for biking, running, walking and skating, along with picnicking and birdwatching activities. An unpaved equestrian trail parallels the paved trail. Equestrians may use the paved trail or unpaved shoulder at their discretion; bridges are shared by all trail users. Equestrian use is prohibited on the Military Heritage Trail.

The main trailhead is located near the intersection of State Road 87 and U.S. Highway 90 in Milton. A visitor center, located approximately one mile from the trailhead, offers parking, restrooms, picnic tables, barbeque grills, an amphitheater, and a playground.
