Hiking Betz Tiger

Needs a location

Plan for a 3.5 mile hike. The only facility is a porta potty.

You will pass Pumkin Hill Creek before entering Betz-Tiger Point. Once inside Betz, continue to the end of the road to meet us at Edwards Creek Trailhead.

Betz-Tiger Point was acquired by the City of Jacksonville in 2003 through the “Better Jacksonville” and “Preservation Project” initiative. Located between Edwards Creek and Pumpkin Hill Creek, these 525 acres of pine flatwoods and maritime forest offers opportunities to observe wildlife such as gopher tortoises, deer, turkey, a variety of birds and much more while exploring the trail network and scenic views of the surrounding broad expanses of saltwater marsh. Visitors can enjoy miles of nature trails for hiking, biking and equestrian use, picnicking, kayaking and fishing. Kayak launches can be found at the north end of the property within the Edwards Creek Day-Use Area as well as just a few hundred feet south of the Preserve entrance within the adjacent Pumpkin Hill Creek Preserve State Park.

Hiking the Timucuan Trails; Spanish Pond and Timucuan Ravine Trail Combo

We will be hiking the Spanish Pond and Timucuan Ravine trails for a total of 4.5+ miles of beautiful Florida nature with up to 137 ft. of elevation gain.

The Theodore Roosevelt Area is a 600-acre natural treasure of hardwood forest, wetlands, and scrub vegetation. It is also rich in cultural history.
Visitors can experience miles of thickly wooded peaceful nature trails, vast grassland that supports both water and land animals, ancient piles of discarded oyster shells which yield clues about an extinct culture, and the legacy of preservation bequeathed to all by this property's last private owner, Willie Browne.

This area is one of the last unspoiled coastal wetlands on the Atlantic Coast that covers a 46,000-acre area and was designated by Congress in 1988 to protect the complex salt marsh/estuarine ecosystem and historic and prehistoric sites between the lower St. Johns and Nassau Rivers. Public lands within the Preserve are administered by the National Park Service, the State of Florida, the City of Jacksonville, and the United States Navy. Discover 6,000 years of human history and experience the beauty of salt marshes, coastal dunes, and hardwood hammocks.
