What we'll do
Open for RSVPs on January 27.

This is an outing for those who enjoy hiking at a brisk pace while enjoying the outdoors. It is an opportunity to tone leg muscles in advance of upcoming treks. The hike will utilize the GTM Purple and Red trails to create a 6 mile loop. The route courses around the southern end of the reserve providing excellent views of the Guana and Tolomoto Rivers. The trail is firm, well-marked, and has a difficulty rating of 2 (on a 5 pt scale). Though efforts will be made to maintain a 2.5 - 3 mph pace, there will be periodic stops to refresh and appreciate views. Participants should be capable of hiking at a brisk pace for an extended period and have broken-in hiking shoes/boots. The hike will begin at the Trailhead Pavilion across the dam west of the GTM Exhibition Center. Parking and restrooms are available at the pavilion.

DIRECTIONS: From Jacksonville take the A1A South toward St. Augustine for 16.8 miles beyond the JTB Expressway past 3 beach access points and look for the GTM Reserve entrance on the right. From St. Augustine take A1A North for 7.5 miles beyond Vilano Beach past the Exxon Gas Station and look for the GTM Reserve entrance on the left. From the entrance drive straight and across the dam to the trailhead parking. The address for the park is 450 Guana River Road, Ponte Vedra Beach, FL 32082.

Park fees: $3.00 for vehicles with up to 8 passengers.
