Blackwater Heritage State Trail

Marshall Shaw - Park Manager

Five trailheads with parking areas are located along the trail corridor. Southern Trailhead, located 2/10 mile north of the 0 mile marker, has limited parking, restrooms and a water fountain. One mile north, the Milton Trailhead, located just off U.S. 90, features picnic tables and a gazebo, restrooms, a water fountain and a bicycle rack. There is a shop across the street that sells, rents and repairs bicycles.

The Visitor Center, located approximately one mile north of the Milton Trailhead, offers parking, restrooms, picnic tables, barbeque grills, an amphitheater, and a playground. Meeting space may be rented here, Call (850) 983-5338 to inquire about these rentals.

The Equestrian Trailhead on Munson Highway (CR191) provides parking for horse trailers and oversized vehicles, covered picnic benches and potable water as well as water for horses. An accessible portable toilet is located near the four-mile marker; waterless restrooms are located at both the six and eight-mile markers. No potable water is available north of the equestrian trailhead, so trail users should plan to bring ample water. A parking area and covered picnic table can be found at the eight-mile point where the Blackwater Heritage State Trail joins the Military Heritage Trail.
