A hike along the Guana Trails is like taking a step back in time 450 years. Located within the Guana Tolomato Matanzas National Estuarine Research Reserve (GTM Research Reserve), there are five hiking options ranging from shorter hikes of approximately 2 miles, to a longer 5.8-mile hike. We will be exploring the Timucuan Trail, a 3.5 mile moderately trafficked loop trail that features a river and is good for all skill levels.
For those who want to enjoy the beach after the hike, we can cross A1A and hang out/walk Guana Beach.

Riverside Park, 753 Park St, Jacksonville, FL 32204
The theme this year is:
We will meet at Riverside Park, near the Park & Post St intersection and enjoy the festival prior to the parade.
The parade starts at 2 pm. I would like to view the parade in front of Grassroots Natural Market at the 5 Points intersection...good view and easy refreshments!
We can enjoy all the entertainment after the parade. I look forward to seeing everyone! 🏳️🌈
This is one of the best hikes in the entire NE Florida area! With more than five miles of beautiful, white sandy beaches, Little Talbot Island is one of the few remaining undeveloped barrier islands in Northeast Florida. Maritime forests, desert-like dunes and undisturbed salt marshes on the western side of the island allow for hours of nature study and relaxation. The diverse habitats in the park host a wealth of wildlife for viewing, including river otters, marsh rabbits, bobcats and a variety of native and migratory birds.
Once we arrive at the park, parking is $5 per vehicle and then we will make our way to the Dune Ridge Trail, which winds 4 miles through five distinct natural communities.
For more information about the park, visit https://www.floridastateparks.org/park/Little-Talbot-Island .
1. We will meet at the first big parking lot near the beach. Go past the little parking lot near the entrance.
