Hike Cedar Point Preserve

Hey, it's National Trails Day! Let's hike a trail!

Join us for a 5 - 6 mile hike through live oaks and pines with some great views of the beautiful Timucuan Preserve salt marsh.

We'll meet in the parking lot of the preserve, located at 7116 Cedar Point Road,  Jacksonville, FL 32218.

Exit on to Heckscher Drive north from I-295 (9A/East Beltway), turn left (north) on New Berlin Road. Turn right (east) on Cedar Point Drive. It is on the right (south) before you reach Pumpkin Hill Rd. If you go to the end of Cedar Point Rd, you've gone too far.

Bring bug spray, sun block, and water. No pets, please. Older children capable of long hikes welcome.

    Very nice hike, with great folks - Thanks, Bill! Will post pics (once I figure out how). DEFINITELY bring bug spray, and long pants would be a good choice. Our wild life sighting highlight was the Florida Soft Shell turtle (largest soft shell turtle species in North America)
