What we'll do
Lets hike Fort George Island Cultural State Park and enjoy a beautiful morning so close to home.

The hike distance is approximately four miles along an old golf course that operated from the 1928 to 1991. Since its closing, the land is undergoing plant succession, a biological term for returning the land to something like it was prior to its development. Several interesting and historical sites will be observed along the way. A key attraction is the restored Ribault Club. Once an exclusive resort, it is now a visitor center with meeting space and bathrooms.

Afterwards for those who wish to go, we can go to the Sandollar for lunch.

The entrance to Fort George Island is on the north side of Heckscher Drive just past the Mayport Ferry entrance heading from Jacksonville. After turning on Fort George Road, at the fork bear to the right towards the Ribault Club. Keep driving 1.4 miles until you see the Ribault Club on your right and park in the lot on your left. The road is quite narrow, so drive carefully. There is no fee to enter the park.

Park in the lot across the road from the Ribault Club
