My favorites are Tarklin Bayou, Gulf State Park (not listed because it is across the state line in Alabama but worth a visit, the Florida trail at Ft. Pickens, and the UWF trails. 3 mile bridge added a seperate lane for walkers/bikes. There is a barrier between us and the cars which I love. Time it right, and you will see dolphins on this walk. Pensacola has a wealth of outdoor activities.

The best place to view a practice is at the Naval Aviation Museum. DoD ID cardholders are able to access this area. Ft. Pickens is my second choice. Park by the sea wall across from the lighthouse. It is a $25 per car charge to visit Ft Pickens unless you have a national park pass. My 3rd choice of where to view the Blue Angels practice sessions is the Target parking lot on Blue Angel Parkway.
There are several kayaking clubs on Facebook that give great ideas of where to kayak. (Pensacola kayakers & White Island yakers)
Bike Pensacola holds a police escorted "slow ride" once a month. Other paved trails for biking are the 9.1 mile bike path on Pensacola Beach, the bike & walking lanes of 3 mile bridge, Navy Point Park has a 3.9 mile paved trail, and Milton has the 8.2 mile Blackwater Heritage trail.
