  • 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...

  • Great park with trails for hiking and biking. So good to walk in the shadows of the trees when it’s hot and sunny. Didn’t realize how big this park is. Make sure to take water with you:)
  • 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!
