This westernmost state rail-trail winds through the historic town of Milton.
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 bird-watching activities. Equestrians may use the paved trail or unpaved shoulder at their discretion; all trail users share bridges. Equestrian use is prohibited on the Military Heritage Trail.
The trail 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 Elva Street Trailhead is located near State Road 87 and U.S. Highway 90 in Milton. A visitor center, approximately one mile from the trailhead, offers parking, restrooms, picnic tables, grills, and a playground.
