on Timucuan Trail

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!

Easy to find & follow. Surprising trail for being in the middle of Jax. There is another 1 mile trail near this trail that takes you to a lookout tower you can go to the top of. We went a day after a heavy rain, so was muddy for about 1/4-1/2 a mile. Best to do during dry season or with mucklucks ;) Shaded park, large fenced dog run area & nature center near trailhead! Good trail for kids & dogs.

Nice short hike. Get to see woodlands,Marsh and river scenery. The only drawback was alot of trash in a few areas.

January: the trail map is worthless. reportedly, there is a 3mi trail, a 6mi trail and several shorter ones. NONE are marked well. And at least today, every trail I tried was eventually under water. Would not do this hike in the heat of the summer as there is absolutely no shade. And definite gator prints seen in the sand- that was my highlight.

Quick 3 mile winter hike. Was here a few months ago and the trail was very wet in some parts. It seems to have dried up quite a bit. I saw a couple people with strollers and lots of dogs. A few kids, and a few trail runners. I’d say it’s an overall good trail for anyone.

Excellent walking trail, clear and wide.
Trails are clearly marked and km/mi markers to let you know how far you have traveled.
Runners, bicycles and horses use this trail. There is plenty of parking and port-a-let and trail sign at the trail head.

This trail is great if you have little children and have strollers or for handicapped people. It is very accessible. For me though, I rather enjoy a longer, non- paved trail. I would also consider this pretty safe also, as it was fairly crowded when I was there.

Somp’n ta do

Such a fun little trail! Slight elevation change that makes it a little challenging and has great views! Well marked with easy access and plenty of parking.

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.

Great short hike. This actually consists of 3 different trails. The Spanish Pond is definitely easy. The back side trails are a lot more rugged. The green trail (can’t remember how to spell the name) is up and down hills. Pretty good grade. Fun time!

Lots of options to veer off and do easier or more difficult trails.

Great little gem! A small piece of Old Florida saved for enjoyment by future generations (to include my teenage son). Been years since I walked thru spots of sugar sand while listening to the wind whistle thru tall pines. Also got an unexpected (& very brief!) glimpse of a vivid shiny Black Racer snake near the far western edge of the Yellow Trail. FYI; our full loop hike was just 6.5 miles; not 21.5 miles as stated in the AllTrails description.

No concrete/asphalt!! Yay! Mostly semi packed sand and dirt. Several distances available as a loop or out and back. Easily accessible trail. Easy parking. Happy Trails:)

nice place, asphalt, didnt walk it all, well kept from what i did see

My favorite hike so far that was a little challenging. Seeking something more challenging in jax.

According to MapMyHike app and my fit bit it’s a little short of 5 miles the way we walk the trail. We are doing this 2-3 times a week around 9 am. You get to see an overlook and history throughout the trails plus a short elevated area . Not the mountains im used to from San Diego but this will do!! Next time we are crossing the street to fort Caroline loop to make it over 6 mile. In Instagram we are tagging #mayporthiking

Love it, GREAT workout.
