I've done a few photography shoots here and the photos always turns out awesome. It has nice flowers, greenery and paths. It's also great for walking or hiking. Love it.

Once you are back in the woods, walking through the hills next to a stream, you would swear that you are not in Florida. Definitely worth checking out.

My husband and I stopped here on our way home to Minnesota from a trip to Florida. We wanted a leg stretcher before a long drive and were in for a treat. You can make this hike as short or as long as you'd like. And there's no cost! We went on a lovely Friday and it wasn't crowded. Trail maps were available. We came across a perching red shouldered hawk that didn't seem to mind us and I got a few nice pictures. I think we walked every trail. What a find!!!

I cannot believe that I have not ever been here! My husband and I went to do a little hiking. We were looking for a longer hike and the route says they have around 2 miles. Well we managed to make it a little over 3 1/2. There are several different trails that intertwine. Many of the plants and flowers are labeled, which was neat. It was not very strenuous. We went mid-February and the weather was just perfect! There were a lot of people out there but we were never on top of people during the hike. We even saw a couple with a stroller!
I highly recommend this trail to any nature lover!

We visited here on our recent trip to Jacksonville. This is an excellent place to go on a hike and learn about Northern Florida Flora. We have never hiked in this type of terrain before and were greatly impressed with the trees and plant life, many of which we have never seen before! It is great that Jacksonville has this preserve available for visiting. This was an excellent way to spend a few hours enjoying nature.
