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

Very sandy in areas, pretty sure I ran in circles at times, saw heaps of wild life- Birds, turtles, and a huge snake.

This is such a great place to go! Literally lived next to it for 25 years and never even gave it a thought about exploring it till last weekend. The Timucuan Trail was my favorite out of all of them. Tons of great photo ops!

This is great walk but I would rate it as Easy. The trail is well groomed, wide, an almost entirely level except for the optional hill at the end. Wonderful view of the marsh.

The boardwalk is broken and we didn't notice the tiny sign acknowledging it. Doubt we will be back

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!

Fun, peaceful and educational.

Well maintained, clean and open. Nice foliage!
Take a picture of the map at the trailhead... the north side loop is a little tricky.

Nice, easy walk— would be great with young kids.

Came early in the morning right at daylight...made it to the green trail vista right at sunrise...beautiful very well maintained trail with amazing views!!

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.

Quiet enjoy hike through nature at sunrise!

Trail is mostly paved and shaded. The bridge to the water was closed for repairs (3/24/18). Over all nice short hike with family.

Dock extending out to river is closed due to hurricane damage. Nice quick walk but not a ton to see.

hiked this for the first time with North Florida Trail Blazers. Excellent trails with elevations that most trails in this area don't have. Great views await you on this trail.

I enjoyed the local trail with the mixed terrain. It’s a great hike to do with friends or after work

Easy to find, easy parking and well maintained. Also has a covered picnic area by a play park for the kids to enjoy.

We drove up and parked. If you're not a pass holder, you'll need to get an envelope from the deposit box and leave $3. Tear off the stub and hang on your rearview mirror. I took one of my dogs on a Friday morning around 0930. We saw maybe 4 bikers. The paved trail is awesome. Lots of room for bikers to go around you. We walked about 2 miles and took a right and walked another .5 miles to the "beach side" where lots of downed trees are. It's sandy and very beautiful. People started flocking to the area around 11am. Clean, lots of trees and bushery. This will be a regular place to take my dogs for a nice and relaxing walk.

Best hiking in jax if you’re looking for elevation

Great trails for dog walks. Island trail usually has mud and standing water near the end.

Short trail but well maintained.

If you go early in the morning, beware you will hit every spider web on the trail.

Hiked to the lookout tower for great view of the Ortega river. Easy and relaxing. Trail was muddy in a few places and had some difficulty following the trail markings on the way back.

there is a bench to sit on at the waterfront, perfect for a little break and a picnic lunch

Very Sandy, no single track, nothing to see to distract from the boring double track while pushing thru tons of sand

Well maintained trail with easy to read maps and trail markers. The trail is also dog friendly and has great views.

Very easy boardwalk hike.

Well marked and maintained.

What a wonderful trail. lots of shade and trees. plants and trees are marked with names. I would recommend this trail.

Absolutely beautiful. Diverse topography and plenty of foliage. The trail itself is incredibly varied, sometimes dirt, sometimes sand, sometimes wooden bridges. There are lots of tree roots so watch your step; I enjoyed how interactive it made the trail. 10/10, my new favorite.

Good mix of terrain
