Hike the Trails at UNF

We’ll hike along the lovely trails of the University of North Florida Wildlife Sanctuary and enjoy the vistas that abound in this special natural area which is a jewel in our own back yard. 

We will hike for about 2 1/2 hours at a leisurely pace. Trail map available at Meetup under More/Files.

Meet in the parking lot at the west entrance to UNF about a half mile east of 9A. This is the entrance that continues east from Town Center Road. You’ll see a building on your right where parking permits are purchased. (You will need to purchase a daily permit - $3.00).

Bring repellent and water. Children capable of hiking for 4 miles are welcome. No pets.

    Great hike: beautiful trails, nice spring weather, good company. Thanks for showing us Native Heart Island, Brian. Have hiked UNF trails a few times before and have always enjoyed the preserve.We would always stop for a break on the bridge. So, I never knew the bridge lead to an island! I always thought it led back to the trail we'd been walking on- along the other side of the water.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
