The trail follows the route of the former Marianna and Blountstown (M&B) Railroad from Blountstown (the county seat for Calhoun County) to the Apalachicola River. The pleasant, well-shaded trail crosses several streets, but traffic is light and crossings are well marked. An underpass at busy route 20 is a plus. Benches and fitness stations are located along the trail. The nearby Panhandle Pioneer Settlement is a recreation of pioneer life - a 5-acre living history museum with 18 historical buildings. The Florida National Scenic Trail also runs along the Greenway path. (Map link and photos below.)
