Edward Ball Nature Trail

The Edward Ball Nature Trail is a peaceful escape for students and visitors at the University of West Florida. This is a fantastic location to experience closeup a natural wetland. The trail is a one-mile loop on a raised boardwalk around Thompson’s Creek, a tributary of Escambia River.

Canoeing and Kayaking

Thompson’s Creek is also a great place to paddle. There is a new launch near the trailhead of the Edward Ball Nature Trail. Students and alumni with Nautilus cards may check out canoes during regular school hours. If you are not a student or alumni you can bring your own gear to experience this beautiful paddling location.
