I've spent more time on these trails than anywhere in Jacksonville. I love the diversity and beauty. I especially love the arch tree!

Lots of pine trees and scrub. A few nice flowers. Not much shade. Very sandy trail. Not much variety at all. Perhaps better for runners instead of hikers. Won't go back anytime soon.

I was very pleasantly surprised with the beauty of this trail. Florida trails can be so boring but this was very enjoyable.

I have been running these trails since the early 80s. This was before the Preserve days. The pictured trails are no where near 21 miles. You have to be creative to get 7+ miles out of the course. If you run the inner white loop it is 3.5 miles. If you add the outer (far west loop) that adds 2.2 miles for a total of 5.7, which is usually the distance we run when we go out there. Keep in mind that yellow flies are out starting the beginning of May until the end of September. These are the some of the best trails in Jax area (no roots to trip you or cause you to turn an ankle). Motor vehicles are not allowed on the trails. The route is a little sandy, but always a pleasant run.

Like many have stated the view is boring, but overall it wasn't too bad.
