I came in on pavilion road since the gate was closed for this trail when I went this weekend. My son and I were camping. The campground is very nice but spartan. For large groups tent/roof top tent camping, space 7 is very reasonable and can hold many vehicles and tents. The track I took was fire tower road past the ranger station to big oaks and turned left. This section is pretty easy and only a bit of mud. Once we got to hog trap road we turned right and this is where it got fun and lots of mud. We took it to north boundary road and came back since we needed to setup camp and my tent is on my truck. Unfortunately I did not take any pictures of the trails, but here are a few of the campsite.

Well marked trails. Very nice for winter hiking in Florida-no bugs-no snakes...just a couple wild boars
Would be great for horseback riding.

Very nice hike. The bridge was open and we got to go up to the Ortega River. Beautiful scenery. Careful on the bridge. It's in need of repair.


Nice with kids and good civil war history postings. Nice spot to fly a kite.

trail running

was a great easy run with nice views

Hiked 4 miles with wiener dogs in tow. First 2/3 is a nice moderate hike with ups and downs. Last bit is a really beautiful walk near the water. Will return!

Very nice and well kept preserve walk! Mostly paved or boardwalk, but you can easily venture off road. Great for hike, bike & strollers. Ideal place to park and pick up on the Baldwin Rail Trail as well. Just beautiful!

Nice walk, followed the off-road bike trail, quiet hike but got lots of ticks!

The white trail is great for biking. However, it is a short ride. The yellow trail, which makes it a 6 mile ride, is absolutely a muddy mess on the second half. We ended up walking a good deal through mud.

Well-marked trails, typical Florida hiking, very sandy with long stretches of soft sand, horse poop everywhere, even on non-horse designated trails. Too flooded past 1.5 miles to continue after heavy rain 2 days ago. Turned back and cut over on Longleaf Pine Loop that also connects to trailhead. Nice trailhead with picnic area and clean, well-stocked bathrooms.

Quick and easy but some pretty scenery. Mid week very low crowds.

Great fun day. North boundary trail was a bit scary thought we were going to tip over. But we made it and had a blast. Will be back

Tried hiking here this past weekend. The boardwalk is closed and other parts of the park were flooded from rain. Not much of a hike here. There are better hikes in the area that are more accessible.

Rated two stars because trash everywhere.

Very beautiful. Definitely will go back.

I hiked here last week! Lovely foliage and great weather this time of year.

One of the only places in inline skate in Jacksonville ! I go all the time, everyone is always very nice when you pass them by. Trail intersects with Camp Milton Preserve, a nice scenic historic trail, also a nature walk as well.

I did the Cedar Point Loop (blue) trail only, and was disappointed. I was expecting better views of the marsh and creek. Lots of dead leaf accumulation, downed branches. Even on a cool December day, it felt muggy in there.

Super scenic trail. Quick and easy.

It’s a sidewalk...you’ll be able to see/hear cars going by the whole way. Not worth your time, very disappointing.

nice easy hike, saw a deer and areas with pig rooting evidence on the trail

Nice trail with lots of trees and shade much of the way. Total distance according to my iPhone was 2.9 miles for the loop. It’s nice that they have the bike and hiking trails separated. We saw several alligators and turtles.

Nice trail but the mileage isn’t accurate. It’s only a 1.2 mile loop.

Great Trail. Walk our dogs daily. Relaxing and beautuful. Find and learn something new each time.

Was fun & educational

mountain biking

Great place to start riding. I’m 53 and this was my first off road mountain biking experience. It is listed as easy, but it still wore me out. One thing to note was that the southern side of the back trail was tore up pretty bad by some heavy vehicle causing heavy mud , as such it was hardto cross on a bike. I will be back. I’ve lived in this area for 6 years and didn’t even know this trail was here.

it is beautiful out here! Very scenic. The river Boardwalk is still closed, but I can't wait to come back to check it out.

My backcountry super deet bug spray did not deter bugs out here. You can yell this trail hasn’t been looked after in awhile.

Potentially a nice hike when there hasn't been a rainstorm after months of above average rain. The bug population was thriving, hungry and laughed at our bug spray. We lasted a half mile in then turned tail and power splashed out. Will be back when it's cooler, drier and the bugs have died back some. December maybe!
