Open for RSVPs on July 29.


We'll walk the beautiful Timucuan Ecological and Historical Preserve in the Theodore Roosevelt area of Jacksonville. Experience a few miles of peaceful, wooded nature trails, vast grasslands supporting water and land animals, and ancient piles of oyster shells revealing clues about an extinct culture. This will be about a two hour hike of three miles. Some of the hiking will be up steep inclines and on uneven trails.

After our hike, we can drive over to the Visitor Center to see the exhibits and see a replica of the historic Ft. Caroline.

The trail entrance is just past 13165 Mount Pleasant Rd., one mile southeast of Fort Caroline National Memorial.

DIRECTIONS:
Coming from the west of Fort Caroline National Memorial on Mount Pleasant Rd., pass the entrance, go about 2 miles more on Mount Pleasant Rd, and turn left at the Sierra Club sign.
Coming from the east of the Memorial, pass signs for Spanish Pond development and go 1/4-1/2 mile on the right. Look for the Sierra Club sign.

Bring water and insect repellent. Children capable of hiking three miles are in the heat are welcome. No pets, please.

How to find us:The trail head entrance is just past the 13165 address. Look for the Sierra Club sign.
