Nice trail for biking, lots of alligators. Beginning of trail is a bit traveled.

Summer weekday morning hike. MUST have a quality bug spray for this hike. Beautiful woods and very quiet. Bring plenty of water and food. There are no services available here. Followed the trail to the Tolomato River. It is salt water fed from the ocean so there isn’t much small animal activity. However, there is a lot of marsh land and we came across an alligator on the path. Quite a thrill!!! In summer, the morning can be best as afternoon rain patterns persist.

Nice open trails with a lot to choose from. The West Loop is nice with a view of Lake Jackson. The East Loop is more in the woods. Easy to moderate trails. Good diversity.

Great run along the river. A few down trees on the trail, made for some good hurdles.

Run here every week. Great trail the bridge over Sally Ward Springs gets super slippery, slow down and be careful.

not well traveled or properly maintained the overgrown firebreaks make for a better trail in some places. until maintenance is done you would be better off choosing a different trail.

well maintained trails, nice place to go for a long hike in the shade.

Awesome trail. Great for running and biking.. Tons of iguanas.

Fun trail for learning about Florida coast wildlife.

Beautiful place ! Not as much wildlife this time as last due to high water levels. Cypress trees are amazing, 20 feet around,over 100 feet tall, 500 years old ! Enjoyable, easy walk in a beautiful setting.
.

Just got back from this trail. Both loops are flooded, but nothing more than ankle deep. The mosquitoes are horrendous. My nine year old was almost carried away by them. We fully sprayed ourselves down before getting on the trail and they laughed at us.
Well maintained trail, $6.00 at the gate, easy parking if you go early. Nice walking by a river. Take a weight belt so the mosquitoes can’t carry you away!

Excellent place.

You can run or hike on this trail for the first 4.75 Miles, I was expecting tu run the full 14.9 but vegetation took over and looks like no one has been there in a long time. 0 traffic and found snakes along the way.

Nice footpath.

Maintained nice and had a neat little learning facility for my little one.

(7-13-2018) A short walk, really neat to see the remains of the old bridge. Mosquitos got a bit aggravating closer to the bridge but hey it’s Florida. The trail is pretty much all shaded which is nice this time of year. The trail is also well maintained and easy to follow and clear to see the old road bed. Going to take the kids back in the Fall/Winter.

I thought there would be more of the trail next to the river. instead it was on the other side of a fence through some trees. we still went through to see the river lol. It was a good trail though my son saw a deer and we saw some deer tracks and scrapes. all in all we had a great time.

Hurricane Irma took its toll. The Flagler bridge is closed and the canopy is not quite what it was. The footing is much sandier. But then nature is what it is and being out in it is always a joy.

Fun jumps for a first timer here. Decent stretches to get some speed. Barely any roots/rocks. Several sandy areas were tough for my smaller tires. No tree cover, very sunny. Will definitely come back.

Nice relaxing walk with good views of the lake and natural Florida flora.

Love this place!!!!

Had a great hike with the kids there. Saw gators, turtles and a hawk. The rapids are beautiful, bathrooms & playground are nearby.

Love this track. Make sure to bring some water

This place was amazing. Gorgeous. Calm spring-fed river. Kayaking is great and relaxing here.

Absolutely my favorite trail in Jax to date. Love the elevation as it gets your heart pumping.

Very easy, probably a little better when it's a bit cooler.

Nice trail. Hint: pick up the trail guide at the entrance. You can choose to stay on the paved ‘blue’ trail or wander off to more natural trails. We opted for the first cut off to the yellow trail. It goes out & comes back to the blue trail just a few few from where u left it. If. You want to do the yellow trail, watch for the trail marker (post w yellow dot) after you cross the bridge and the sandy unmarked trail. I can’t say how long it is but I just about finished a bottle of water. So we headed back to the car. Next time we’ll take a different route.
