Explore the Timucuan Preserve along the St. Johns River on 3.5 miles of hiking trails through hardwood forest, marshes, bluffs, and shell mounds. The Theodore Roosevelt Preserve is a beautiful area! After the hike, you can visit the Visitor Center and the exhibit of the historic Ft. Caroline.
The trail entrance is at 13165 Mount Pleasant Rd., 1 mile southeast of Fort Caroline National Memorial.
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 brown sign on a cyclone fence on the left that says “Trailhead Parking”. Coming from the east of the Memorial, pass signs for Spanish Pond development and go 1/4-1/2 mile on the right. Brown signs are flat on the cyclone fence.
