Explore the most popular trails in Big Talbot Island State Park with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Located on one of Northeast Florida's unique sea islands, Big Talbot Island State Park is primarily a natural preserve providing a premier location for nature study, bird-watching, and photography. Explore the diverse island habitats by hiking Blackrock Trail to the shoreline, Big Pine Trail to the marsh or Old Kings Highway and Jones Cut through the maritime forest. Launch a boat from the north end of the island to fish and tour the salt marsh or rent a kayak and take a guided paddle tour with Kayak Amelia, (888) 30-KAYAK (305-2925). Kayak tours require advanced reservation. Visit The Bluffs and enjoy a picnic at one of the pavilions overlooking the water or take a quick stroll down the trail to Boneyard Beach. The unique beach is famous for the salt washed skeletons of live oak and cedar trees that once grew near the shore.

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

A Florida beach with driftwood. How could you go wrong?

This is mainly a bike trail with beautiful canopied and open areas. It can be a little hot in the open areas. There are two half mile trails off the pavement to the water front. Parking is $3. We took our dog so we couldn’t go on the shoreline.

This is a great trail. The beach views are unique with the driftwood. The trail is very well maintained and is very peaceful. I’ve been 3 times and every time has been enjoyable.

We drove up and parked. If you're not a pass holder, you'll need to get an envelope from the deposit box and leave $3. Tear off the stub and hang on your rearview mirror. I took one of my dogs on a Friday morning around 0930. We saw maybe 4 bikers. The paved trail is awesome. Lots of room for bikers to go around you. We walked about 2 miles and took a right and walked another .5 miles to the "beach side" where lots of downed trees are. It's sandy and very beautiful. People started flocking to the area around 11am. Clean, lots of trees and bushery. This will be a regular place to take my dogs for a nice and relaxing walk.

It was a nice easy trail. Completely paved from one end to the other except the boardwalk. Nice views. If you go later in the day, watch out for cars where they’re not supposed to be. It was right at dusk and a sedan came zipping by me. I had to step off quickly into the grass to dodge them. Trail runs next to relatively busy road for the most part. Highly recommend going down to the beach to see all of the driftwood. Very beautiful!

Black Rock Beach - short trail to beach with tons of downed trees. Gorgeous.

Love this trail for roller blading. Smoothly paved and mostly shaded in the morning. Not too heavily trafficked with nice picnic area and view of boneyard beach/Amelia island at the end. Close to the road in places though, so there's noise from cars along the way.
