St Augustine, Florida Map

nice historic place a must see was there last summer awesome fort

It’s not really a trail, is a gravel road. There are several small trails that branch off and are worth exploring.

Nice beach walk. Heavy people traffic at first but the farther you go the more deserted it gets.

Fun, shady. A few stairs. There was no parking opened right in front of the trail but parking was open at the road before the trail take a right and park on the right.

no place quite like St Augustine. posts of history and so much to see and do.

Not a long trail but a favorite for incline.

good clear trail, kids lost interest quickly, variety of animal tracks found

Plan your visit Castillo de San Marcos around when they shoot the cannon. Not a wanna be wimpy cannon, a full on rocking cannon. Lots to eat and many activities near by.

Mostly hard pack roads and pine forest. We did a 6 mile loop. It was a nice Sunday hike but not much to look at.

Beautiful old town to visit. Have been there several times.

We did it as a combination of walking and scenic driving. We particularly enjoyed exploring the unique Old City and Castillo de San Marcos. And the kids happily got in some extra trick-or-treating, as many of the local shops and restaurants were handing out candy the day before Halloween.

Hilly (particularly for Florida), but wouldn't take you longer than 30 minutes to complete.

Trees. Lots of trees

Very nice trail.

I really liked this walk! It was a nice wide trail. Walked with my dog and she had a great time as well. Not very much wildlife but the trees/shrubs made lovely scenery.

Not much to see, wide open trails.

fantastic ride along the beach but only at low tide. Did about 10 miles out and back. When the wind is against you it can be a little tough but when it is with you there is nothing better.

New signs have been put in along hwy. 206 just west of the drawbridge to mark the location of this trail. A 3.8 mile single track/one way mountain bike trail has been cut through the area within the last couple years. To get to the trail head, enter at the eastern end and ride in on the dirt road about 2/10's of a mile. The single track trailhead will be on the right hand side. The trail goes through multiple types of terrain. There's lots of curves, narrow bridge challenges, logs to cross over, mild hills, roots, and a senior section along a bluff which overlooks the estuary. Once your finished riding this, I suggest you then ride the dirt road (trails), as they are very senic with large old oaks creating a curtain head. The trees are full of Spanish Moss making for a very senior ride. Camping is allowed, but only at one of the four designated sites on a first come, first serve basis. This area is free to use and camp at. Remember to bring insect repellent, as there's plenty of a. I give this area 5 Stars, as the single track trail can be very challenging.

Ancient Dunes is a nice little trail in the state park. I was surprised it wasn't just a flat trail. We had fun walking around the trail.

Nice walk with the family. Fairly uneventful but good geocaching in the area.

I've taken both kayaks and canoes on this creek and it's always such a great paddle. Very slow and enjoyable. I've done this in summer and winter time and it never disappoints me.

Easy trail to do with kids.

Well maintained if uneventful. Unfortunately, views are limited, even for Florida. Still would be great for kids, Scouts, etc.

Absolutely stunning. Having been to Jacksonville Beach and having grown up on Central Florida beaches, I wasn't prepared for how gorgeous Anastasia State Park would be.

It was $8 for our car to come in for the day. We drove in, stopped for a gopher tortoise crossing the road, and headed down the long drive to the beach. Stopped by the campsites to check them out. They were actually across the road from the beach, tucked away in thick palmetto trees. Clean bathrooms and a snack bar/camp store. Went on to the end parking lot where the beach is and was blown away by the size of the dunes. It is literally a couple hundred feet of boardwalk to get from the parking lot over the dunes to the actual beach. Cool birding area as well.

The beach itself is beautiful. Powdery white sand as far as you can see. Great for kids because it is very shallow, so you can walk out pretty far and not be in too deep of water. Strong rip tides while we were there so didn't venture too far in. A good amount of people there, but wouldn't call it crowded. A couple getting their wedding photos taken, some surfers, and a handful of other families. So glad we stopped by here while we were passing through town, and will be making a point of returning for longer next time.
