We took my 60+ parents and our 9, 6 year old. We had a great time and were impressed with the elevation level for Florida. The only down side was the trail was right by the road taking away some of the illusion of being off in nature.

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

This park was a development project that was shut down by the government because of endangered habitat. The path was the road going in to the neighborhood. Looks like the road was intentionally torn up. Two loops. Long loop seems to always be closed. No park staff.

This is now one of my favorite trails.

Great trail although I got a little lost But would definitely visit again !!!

I stopped here on my way home from work. Found a beautiful lookout on the Myakka River and enjoyed a brisk walk under the tree canopies.

I really enjoyed this walk. The lake was beautiful. Enjoyed a lunch with my girlfriend.

I gotta say: this was a nice hike. When I went it was cold and rainy and pretty much the worst weather other than a full on storm, but it was a very easy hike and it was cool to see horseshoe crabs, fish, and large snails around the coastline. Definitely bring snacks and plenty of water because it’s certainly a long one.

Trail bridges are closed on the paved portion and trees have fallen and blocked the path through the woods... very disappointing

Nice day for a hike. We saw a pileated woodpecker and a wild pig.

Being a trail runner from up north, entire Yamato scrub area is as good as it gets in south Florida. You can run on pavement, sand or pine straw and all trails eventually lead back to the main walkway. Winding side trails are my favs, running single track over a nice soft surface. No street crossings, cars or noise (maybe a little noise) to distract you.

Absolutely NO parking anywhere

it's ok if you take a compass with you. got lost many times. where there are maps it should say YOU are here! ill never go back . too many nicer easier parks to enjoy

Was a very small park, we hiked and explored the entire park in under 2 hours, but was very beautiful. Helpful hint, in order to see the falls you must go on a day after a rain.

Was a very entertaining cave tour, plus my wife and I had a great time exploring the Bluff trail afterwards. We had Robinson as our guide.

Great palms & not much people

Nice flat run for a visitor to the area. Not busy on a weekday morning, but not scenic either.

Nice trail, however I recommend doing during the week... weekends get pretty busy!

Hiked a combination of Yellow and Green trails due to Blue being temporarily closed to rid the area of Southern Pine Beetle outbreak.
Small hills and change of terrain was nice.

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.

Love it. More wildlife than expected!

Best hiking in jax if you’re looking for elevation

Great easy trail with something new to see every day. Many side trails not listed on map that bring you easily back to the main path.

They made some really nice improvements to this trail. One of my favorite in Gainesville. Enough to be challenging and fun. Downhill speed by marker 6 on top of hill is sweet!

Excellent views. Weekends can start to get busy; only 3 cars Sat AM, but by noon upon departure there was 30 cars in the parking area. This trail write up should be updated as it is not "lightly" traveled. Regardless, well worth a visit. I've noted a few folks recommending to use go clockwise on the loop to have cooler wind by the trails end. Much of the trail is shaded. Just be careful if you tend to fatigue early, as the river edge portion of the trail has more roots and requires more strength/agility.

I parked it to myrtle parking lot and took the trail there. You walk in about 4/10 of a mile on a grassy Road and then you can go left or right and beyond a nice hiking trail. Make sure you look at the signs on the tree, the orange marks, because the truth is pretty messy at some points and Verizon and two other places then the orange marking tree there’s a little bridge and some boards you can walk over.. I walked slowly this time, and I’m glad I did, there a lot of limbs on the ground. And you can Easley trip.When you walked on the grassy Road, you’ll see some beautiful pines some beautiful cabbage palms and the effects of fire. You can see only did a couple miles, but that’s all I had time for today. So a lot of butterflies. And there is a trail to the west of the parking area that I completely missed of course so I just have to come back again

Completed the loop on my dads b day (15.83 miles). He passed away several years ago and I wanted to commemorate his life. Took me about 6 hours with several stops to snack and rest my feet. Bring sunscreen, bug spray, and “plenty” of water. Not much shade to be had. But over the day was successful. Good luck!

These interpretive trails are located a ¼ mile north of the Blue Hole, on Key Deer Blvd. There are two trails here; the Mannillo Trail, named in honor of Fred Mannillo, a local environmental advocate, is a short out and back trail, composed of crushed limestone. There are two benches located along the trail to relax and enjoy nature and the trail ends at an observation platform that is situated within a freshwater wetland area. The Watson Trail, named for the first Refuge Manager Jack Watson, is a 2/3 mile loop trail through pine rockland, freshwater wetland, and hardwood hammock habitat. These trails are located in full sun, so plan your trip accordingly. In summer they are best visited early in the morning and then later in the day, towards sunset.
