Urban Fitness Hike – Cowford Loop
Open for RSVPs on Sep 8. This is an outing for fitness hikers (FH) and those who want to join the FH Community. The hike will take place in the Jacksonville urban core and will use its streets, sidewalks, and trails to create a 5-6-mile loop. Though an urban hike, efforts will be made to focus on environmental issues confronting the city while highlighting key environmental assets and efforts to make the urban core more livable. The hike will begin on the southbank of the St. Johns River, cross the Main St Bridge, head east to Metropolitan Park, trace Hogan Creek northwest to Jefferson St, head south to the Riverside area, then cross the Acosta Bridge to the hike starting point. We will be hiking on paved and concrete surfaces, so wear comfortable hiking shoes. Though there will be numerous stops at noteworthy locations, efforts will be made to maintain a very brisk hiking pace. Participants should be capable of hiking at a fast pace for an extended period. The hike will begin at the parking area underneath the Acosta Expressway at the intersection of Prudential Drive and San Marco Blvd. DIRECTIONS: From the South take the I-95 North toward downtown Jacksonville. After passing the Emerson St exit, follow signs to the right directing you downtown to the Prudential Drive exit. Turn left and proceed one block to the San Marco Blvd intersection. From the North or West take I-95 over the Fuller Warren Bridge and exit right to San Marco Blvd. Turn left on San Marco Blvd and proceed one block to the Prudential Drive intersection. GPS Coordinates:[masked], [masked] Bring water, snacks, and sun screen. No pets are allowed.
