Middleburg, Florida Map

Very nice trail. Easy to follow. Bring water.

Nice trail. It was marked really well. There was only a couple places where you might get your feet wet but a really good trail to hit between thunderstorms

great trail, beautiful wildlife and scenery; beware of ticks in tick season. they're rampant.

Nice easy trail. Kind of an eerie vibe. Can’t explain why just felt weird. We got this in just before the regular afternoon summer storm.

Great trail, sandy but well shaded. There is a portion of the trail that runs along the power lines. Overall it was great.

Hiked a little over 5 miles and spotted a deer, cute brown bunny with a white tail, a fat snake, a salamander, froggies, a beautiful woodpecker, and something that looked like a cross between a deer and a fox.

The good - Just got back from a 6 mile hike through the Ravines trail. Always good to get out and walk around. The weather was hot and muggy. Bugs weren't bad at all and that was surprising considering all of the rain we've had. It's a good hike with varying terrain but still relatively easy to do. I saw a deer a turtle and various birds.

The trails are wide and open. Unless you're comfortable in the woods and familiar with the trails and direction, don't rely too heavily on the map you get from this site. There's a reason it says "this map is not for navigational purposes" on it.

The bad - I came home with 4 ticks on me. I had on long pants, knee high socks, long sleeve shirt, a hat and a ton of deep woods off, which I saturated my boots, socks, and pants legs with. I think the ticks actually like the stuff. Anyway, this is the south. If you spend any amount of time in the woods...you will get a tick. You've been warned.

Very sandy...horrendous amount of lone star ticks...

Very very very sandy. Other than that a nice trail but did pick up a few ticks on the way.

Visiting near Jacksonville and Trail app directed me here. Met some hikers finishing up and recommended white/yellow trails. Nice trails meandering in woods/along creek. Easy hike with a mixture of sand and pine floors.
Evidence of horses, nice wide trails. Plenty of room for animals and man
These trails were tucked away and glad I found it on the Trails app

Like this trail but this year it is very very wet in some parts every since rains this past year

One of my favorite trails in the area. I find it scenic especially near the Black Creek area but also at different times of year as the foliage changes—not so much colors but new growth, falling, etc. almost always see deer

Lots of wet areas but great on a sunny cool day

It was a nice hike. Started at the parking lot under the power lines and followed the trail back to the creek. It was hot and sunny, 95. I would say most of the trail is shaded/partially shaded. Trail was wide most places, but sandy. The inclines/declines was a plus. We stopped to take pics at the spur leading to the creek. Almost a tragic mistake. After I took the pic, looked down, and saw a snake out of the corner of my eye. It was a coral snake about 3' away from us. It wasn't aggressive, just kind of slithering in our direction. Used a trekking pole to redirect it, and it went right back from where it came. Overall, it was nice. Just a typical NE Florida hike.

My two grandsons (14 and 9) and I took the path indicated by the map posted at the top of this article. The "connector" between the two loops goes along a power line. It's an easy hike (but take lots of water in the summer) with some changes in scenery as you get near the water. There's no real access to the creek along this trail

We hiked at mid-day, so we didn't see much wildlife apart from, maybe, 500 skinks and small lizards. We did find a hatched snake/tortoise egg and some bobcat, raccoon, and deer prints.

Some of the other maps posted here show a trail off to another point of the creek that has a campsite, I think. I'll check this out if I go again.

Great walk saw two baby fawns down by remote camp site, about a mile from start I followed a grayish/black bobcat for about a 100 yards, of course when I got my camera out it heard me and off it went..

Nice quiet hike with the potential for like 10 miles. There are porta-potties right near the entrance and a few campsites scattered around. It's not exactly remote, there are houses and power lines visible from most of the trails, but I actually really enjoyed walking along the power lines. If you're quiet you can actually hear the electricity, which is weird and cool. There's a lot of sand though, as other people have said, and it definitely tires you out a lot faster.

way too sandy not good for trail jogging. I didn't find it very scenic either. I did a 2 mile loop with my dog.

Nice winter afternoon spot but alas another florida sand slog

Really nice trail. Only did a quick loop of the white trail. Reminding people though that dogs have to be on leash and you have control of your dog. Had a dog run up on me and my puppy. His owners walking a good distance behind. He was technically on leash, but just dragging it behind him.

Trails are sandy, like most in Florida, so you'll probably tire faster than you would otherwise. If you want some extra distance, take the white trail to the red and/or yellow trails too. The primitive campsite at the end of the yellow spur is in an absolutely gorgeous location along the creek. Print a trail map from http://www.floridaswater.com/recreationguide/blackcreekravines/

Well maintained. Some walking under power lines, but enough more in the woods to make up for that. We were able to walk all trails, doubling back only twice, and make nearly ten miles. Two nice points with a small bench with overlook to the water. The water views definitely make this trail nicer than otherwise.

Parts of this orange trail that overlap the blue horse route are very sandy. When you get more in the forest toward Black Creek, many areas of the trail are completely covered in water. Small paths through the woods are easily found to circumvent most of those spots. (Was one week past heavy rains when I went.)
Overall, peaceful and lovely.

not very scenic, our guide got lost twice on the blue trail, very sandy terrain, but I enjoyed it as I am new to hiking & trying to build up my hiking leg muscles.

Not for anyone seeking a great variety of foliage. Driving on the sandy road to the entrance is perilous, at best. Black Creek was the best part, just off the camping area. The group was lucky enough to spot an otter running across our path.

Nice clean trails.

Love walking this trail! It's very quiet and remote. Gotta watch out for ticks and sand spurs though.
