  • A beautiful drive down A1A from Jacksonville led to this peaceful oasis just north of St. Augustine. Miles of well-marked trails take you past interesting flora and fauna, with lovely river views...

  • BEAUTIFUL Park ~ I have been here twice this year. Once walking and this time by bike. Highly recommend taking a bike - Mountain bike or wide tire comfort works very well. We have Specialized Rolls which are perfect for this trail. A must see place for sure. The tree covered canopy makes for a great shady ride or walk. The speed of the bikes keeps the mosquitos off you. I will be back multiple times here. So far my favorite place in the area
  • This is my local hiking trail. It’s has several different length options but all are family friendly and easy terrain. Yellow is the shortest and most popular trail, its worth the short walk with gorgeous views and large pieces of drift wood on the beachside. Red is the longest and has a nice picnic bench tucked away from the more popular trails. Blue has an amazing marsh area where we have seen hawks, otters, and even an alligator. Watch out for ticks!
