Located less than 5 minutes from downtown Milton, the Old River Trail recreation site serves as an entry point for a walking trail that follows the Blackwater River.

The half-mile long trail connects the Russell Harber Landing Park in the City of Milton to Whiting Park, a restricted-access park maintained by the U.S. Navy.

The wide, well-maintained walking trail has several benches along the way ideal for wildlife viewing as well as interpretive signage spotlighting the various species of trees and animals that may be viewed during the walk.

The trail is a low-impact, flat course often used for exercise and fitness by local residents.

The trail is maintained by the City of Milton under co-operation with the District.

The Blackwater River is also a Florida Designated Paddling Trail.
