Turn left (west) onto Dean Still Rd. After approximately 8 miles, turn right onto Rockridge Rd. After 4.2 miles, the gate will be on your left. Meet at gate.
Please note, if coming from SR-33, Google maps or gps units may direct you direct you via Poyner Road to Poyner Oaks Rd N to Rockridge Rd. If coming that way, gate is on right.
Bring: Bring: Sturdy walking shoes or hiking boots (no flip flops), work gloves, water, lunch and/or snacks, and insect protection.
Please note, if you haven't previously filled out a Volunteer Profile with the Florida Trail Association (FTA), it would be helpful to the activity leader if you could do so before the hike. It only needs to be done once. The leader of trail care events will be logging each person's hours onto the state site. The info on hours spent helps the FTA receive funds and/or apply for grants. Please see link to FTA website to set up a Volunteer Profile.
