  • I loved visiting Jacksonville Arboretum & Gardens. I wasn't even aware that I lived so close, until a few days ago. The trail is a lovely trek through Florida's natural flora with some gorgeous and breathtaking sights. Along the way, there are bulletins with information about the plants and the impacts of invasive species! It's open to the public and they have a donation spot near the front for people who can and want to help.

  • One of the nicest places in Jacksonville to go hiking. Absolutely beautiful! You have a choice between a number of short trails and even all combined it's fairly easy. Some parts are paved, others parts are narrower and unpaved.

  • Nice park to take a walk; multiple trails some are dog friendly. Benches placed randomly throughout if you want to sit and enjoy the scenery. There are bathrooms by the main parking lot (which is limited). I highly recommend you bring bug spray.

  • This is a very good place to walk, with interesting views and enough elevation to have a little better workout than we usually get in Jacksonville. Each trail is short, but you can combine them to walk as long as you want. There are enough other people to make you feel safe but uncrowded. I come regularly with my dog. The Upper Ravine trail is my favorite. It's a different kind of view from the flat places we usually see in Jacksonville.

  • Beautiful place, looks like the land that time forgot. Lots of weird shaped trees and roots protruding from the ground. Really have to take your time and explore all the trails to find all the interesting spots. Seems like everytime we go we find something new. Friendly turtles in the pond that your not supposed to feed but they are obviously accustomed to it. Gopher tortoises just kind of chilling by their burrows. A woman we met at a trail intersection saw a snake but couldn't identify it. Looks like they would be everywhere but I've never seen any there in a dozen visits or so. Overall a great place to take the family if you enjoy outdoors and togetherness. And you can get a little exercise if you wish or just chill at the picnic tables. They even have a dog water fountain at the entrance, seriously. It's a foot off the ground. The bathrooms work, what else can I say.😁
