This is a full wooden elevated nature hiking ramp. This great for small children and just a very nice place for a stroll. You can even get in the creek and raft, float, kayak or swim all the way down the creek.

Turkey Creek Nature Trail is a wonderfully relaxing way to start your day; take a break in the middle of your day; or end your day. The City of Niceville maintains this walk over pristine wetlands. What an excellent use of grants and taxpayers' funds.

Very nice walk along the bridge and there are great areas for swimming and such. No bathrooms on the walk, all those I believe are at the parking lot. It gets very busy during the Summer so if you want to go swimming, get there...More

You will walk along a boardwalk that winds through the woods and river. We had our young grandsons. The walk took about an hour there are various places to sit and rest. Had we known we would have worn our bathing suits as there are...More
