This hike traverses over wooded ancient dunes of maritime hammock onto even hillier Timucuan shell mounds, past a hermit's cabin, to an observation point overlooking a salt marsh along the St. Johns. On the return trip you pass a Confederate Soldier's grave and then reach a high point and vista before returning to the trailhead.
Well marked trail. Beautiful views on the water and marshes. Moderately trafficked on a Sunday morning. Lots of variety in the scenery and elevation changes.
loved it, more elevation than most hikes here.
A good workout, more technical than others I have done. Good elevation changes.
