Hike Stokes Landing Conservation Area

Let’s hike the Stokes Landing Conservation Area. This three-mile hike features beautiful old oaks, a variety of wildlife and several opportunities to view the Tolomato River.

Stokes Landing has a picnic area and an observation tower, and is located just north of the St Augustine airport making it an easy drive from Jacksonville and St. Augustine.

This is an entry-level hike open to hikers with little to no hiking experience and in good physical condition. Hikers should bring water, snacks, and bug-spray. Wear shoes comfortable for walking long distances (tennis shoes are usually OK). Dress appropriately for the weather. Please be prompt so we can get started on time.

To ensure a quality hiking experience please note there are no restrooms, so unless you are comfortable using the woods, you should hit the restroom on the way over. Children are welcome, but please no pets.

GETTING THERE: Please use this link to note the hike location or click on "map" above. Basically, you take U.S. 1 south from Jacksonville or north from St Augustine. At Kings Head British Pub (6460 US 1, St Augustine) turn onto Venetian Blvd, which is where the red double-decker bus is located. Follow Venetian as it curves slightly to the left and make a right on Old Dixie Dr. Go a short distance and make a left on Lakeshore Dr. Finally, drive almost to the end of Lakeshore and the parking area for Stokes Landing will be on the right. There is a large sign indicating "Stokes Landing Conservation Area" and you‘re there! If you’re not familiar with this location, I recommend aiming to get there about 20 minutes early. Please call Ken if you need any assistance:[masked]-7765.

    Good hike to allow first timers to participate since it was a relatively short but pretty trail. You got your feet wet since the ground was saturated today- unless you came prepared with waterproof shoes. All in all, it was a beautiful morning, nice group of people, and fortunately a good temperature for hiking- not too cold and not too hot.

    Fellow hikers:

    Thanks for signing up for the Hike Stokes Landing Conservation Area on Saturday, January 18 at 10:00 am. I was on the trail earlier this week and it’s in great shape, except for some mushy areas due to the rain we’ve been having. The trail is definitely walkable, just be prepared for your shoes to get a little dirty.

    The forecast calls for dry and COLD conditions. Stay motivated and come out regardless of the weather. I suggest layering your clothes so you can remove some during the hike if you get too warm.

    Parking is at a premium, so if you must park along the road please pull over as far as possible. This is a very rural area with little to no traffic, so everything should be fine with parking your cars along the street.

    Please be on time as the hike starts promptly at 10:00 am. Finally, if you have any last minute concerns or question just call my cell:[masked]-7765.

    See you soon! Ken
