This place is great if you want to get out for a few hours. Many different types of terrain. As well as informative plaques. Def worth going. Could be a good time for people with kids and dogs are allowed.

Loved this trail! Bonus: It was free to get in and free parking too! I did all the trails in one continuous go, and I loved it! Totaled to about 2.5 miles. I thought it’d be super crowded on a Saturday but I only ran into a few people during my time there! And it wasn’t super hot either, there’s plenty of shade from the trees and there’s sometimes a nice breeze. Take time to go off trail sometimes and sit on the benches, or read the descriptions under the plants and trees. And keep your eyes peeled for tortoises!! I ran into 3 of them during my hike! Overall, and awesome easy hike!

Really good trails! Try to go in the morning when it’s not as hot. Wasn’t super packed for a Saturday.

I loved this trail! Definitely do it when the weather is cooler and the bugs aren’t as bad. The different trails are very relaxing and the scenery is great! I highly recommend this trail and will definitely be doing it again!

great walk. pretty quiet if you go close to when the park opens at 8am. if you decide to take all the trails as one big loop (starting with the ravine trail, stay to the right as each trail breaks off) it ends up being about 2.25 miles.

Lived in Jacksonville my whole life and never been here until today. Such a beautiful place for hiking, picnics, or just getting outside with the family or puppers. Decent amount of trails with with different views of the ecosystem. Not much wild life other than the birds, fish, and occasional crock of a frog.

Trail was a joy! Only one small bridge needed repair. Lovely views of lake. They are working on repairs in some spots. Would do it again.

Mosquitos are a beast! Definitely wear repellant. Love the different trails and myself, kids and my dog come here often

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.
