Flatwoods Pine Trail travels through the dryer area of the park terminating near the boat ramps.

Flatwoods Pine Trail is aptly named. The trail is 1.5 miles long and begins just north of the park entrance about 100 feet. It travels through the driest area of the park looping down to the park road immediately north of the boat launch area. In addition to the pines, the forest is sprinkled with live oaks and saw palmettos. The area is habitat for a variety of songbirds including mockingbirds, nuthatches, and thrushes.

Hike the Cookie Trail for sights of nesting osprey and feeding egrets, herons, and ibis.

Other recreations enjoyed at the park include crabbing, swimming, snorkeling, canoeing and picnicking. Large pavilions and a very large amphitheater are great for meetings or reunions. An observation tower is located at the east end of the park providing panoramic views to the Gulf horizon. Call the park office for details pertaining to their year-round special events list.

Directions: From Pensacola, FL, Travel west along State Route 292 approximately 12 miles to SR 292A. The trailhead is located just north f the park entrance and comes out on the road just north of the boat launching area.
