Beautiful scenery and a peaceful nature walk.

What a perfect little synopsis of the Everglades - lizards, gators, and a stunning variety of birds and plantlife. The boardwalk is very well thought out and beautifully built. There is also a neighboring trail loop to the west that offers a taste of the hammock ecosystems there.

A great option for your first or only day in the Everglades.

One of the best trails I’ve found and I hike around Sanford also.

Flat dog walking trail. I can't see why this would be rated moderate. some of it is in a parking lot. It's Florida so it can be hot and buggy. It's only 1 mile with an option to cut it in half to a half mile.

Nice trail; easy walk w/lots of wildlife to see. This place has an launch area for canoe or kayak to get out in the bay. Caught all kinds of fish every time I’ve made it out that way. Saw turtles, manatees, porpoise, dolphin, a zillion birds in the area.

Have been twice now and it is great. Have been doing the entire loop and some off trails to total 6 miles. Great place to stay in shape. Going to try for 3 days./week

Loved it. Beautiful well-defined trails.

Pretty trail with a few places to rest. Great sunrise walk. I agree with the other reviews; for being a long trail, it would be great to have a restroom and water fountain along the way.

This is a great trail. Most of it is soil with only a little bit of boardwalk which I like. When you get to the marsh on the return trip be ready for some elevation. It’s an uphill climb! Good stuff.

Love the unique island culture that is KW!!

easy for kids, Fort is about a quarter of the way through, some other exhibits along the way

We were really disappointed. 95% of the trails are under water; ranging in depth from the top of your foot up to your shin. There was zero information posted about the trail conditions and had we known this, we’d probably have been in more appropriate (waterproof) footwear and not just sneakers. This made for a very unenjoyable hike and when we found that the trail was converted enough to not see it, turn around and left. I would. It hike this trail surfing rainy season. We may try again but our experience today was not good. Also, one of the trails is completely closed.

Interesting. some board walks, sand, tree roots, dirt/mud. leads to a view of overlooking the lake with lily pads. pretty. not a lot of shade. the flies try to bite.

Easy trails. Beautiful area to explore

Very well defined paths with lots of shape. Be careful, lots of tree roots. I’ll be back.

Start along on the beach and finish in the woods. Nica easy beautiful hike

Holy hot! Wear sunscreen and a hat, bring bug spray and lots of water, and you'll have a great hike! Can get muddy in some areas. Look out tower is on the first boardwalk if you park at the history building. The area deemed "look out point" on the map is a pretty walk but not much of a look out.

This is the only trail within miles of me that offers some elevation. While it is near a road part of the way, it is not a busy road, and it did not interfere with the enjoyable ness of our hike. Overall, the hike took my group (two twenty somethings and a forty something) about two hours and forty minutes to complete. We did include the smaller optional loop about two miles into the hike. I highly recommend including it! You get to walk through some serious nature! We even saw a baby dear about five feet away from us! The path is shaded so it helps keep you cool in the heat of Florida. The only real downside to this hike is the shear amount of spiders everywhere. None of them ever bothered me, however, I have never seen so many HUGE spiders in my life. Keep your eyes peeled ;). I think it is best to go early morning or late afternoon. It is located in a very nice town (Amelia island) and it is worth it to explore the downtown area after as a reward for finishing the hike. I will be back to hike it again for sure!

Well-maintained and kid friendly wide trails

There are so many trails in Jacksonville that I never knew existed. Spent the day out here. 5 different trails to walk. All I can say is WOW. It was so peaceful and beautiful. I think it would be much prettier out there in the spring when all the flowers are in full bloom.

very clean and nice hiking trails

The only thing I can say is that the trails are hard to follow. Otherwise it’s a lot of fun.

Beautiful trail by the water. Has options to other connecting trails.

Fun trail for learning about Florida coast wildlife.

Maintained nice and had a neat little learning facility for my little one.

Nice easy hike. Go near sunset and catch some awesome shots on the sunset pier.

Absolutely my favorite trail in Jax to date. Love the elevation as it gets your heart pumping.

Lovely trail. Did all the loops.

It's pretty but it's more a boardwalk than a trail. That made it disappointing.

Very relaxing hike, with varied distances based on your abilities. Elevation in some areas gets the heart pumping. Lots of wildlife to see, especially early in the morning, or evening hours when its cooler. Watch for snakes.
