Lots of confusing trail off shoots with no signs. The area is beautiful though, and the pond has a small resident alligator.

My first nature walk in jax and it was beautiful and very peaceful. Others were very friendly. Trails were laid out well and clean. My dogs staid wet and hydrated in the little creek bends.

Awesome trail hidden away in Jacksonville. The various types of plants and wildlife make for an interesting hike every time. The yoga posts with qr codes are pretty cool too.

Some of the best Casual trails in Town. There was an old mining operation there a long time ago so the whole terrain is actually hilly which is rare in Florida.

The View is great thanks to all the streams, lake, and trail art.

They also have a huge event area with fire and lots of tables.
