We stopped here for 2 hours and immediately took our bikes off the rack! There are very nice trails for riding and it is quiet and peaceful. We saw lots of birds and got some great photos. Lovely, enjoyable day!

If you'd like an easy walk through beach-side scrub, park right by the entrance booth and make your way back to the trail. It's not fancy in any way, but a lovely escape from Jacksonville bustle.
