Join me on a 5 - 6 mile hike at the National Park Service's wonderful Cedar Point at the end of Black Hammock Island.
We'll hike through sandhill pine and through beautiful live oak with vistas of our treasured Timucuan Preserve. We'll even see the remains of an old plantation house.
Bring sun screen, hat, bug spray, and water. No pets, please.
The address is: 9023 Cedar Point Road, 32218. Take the East Beltway (I295/9A) to Heckscher Drive, turn east. Continue on Heckscher Drive about one-fourth mile to the next traffic signal at New Berlin Road. Turn left and follow New Berlin Road 3.7 miles to the intersection with Cedar Point Road. Turn right on Cedar Point Road and go 5.4 miles, then bear right at the Cedar Point sign. Continue on 1.5 miles to the end of the road and the trailhead. Restrooms available near trailhead. See trail map under More/Files.
NOTE: You will pass a "Cedar Point Preserve" on Cedar Point Rd on your right at about the 5 mile point. That is the city park and is not where we'll be. Keep going!
