Let's Explore the Jacksonville Arboretum Gardens

Time to break out the gear and hit the Jax Arboretum Gardens!

Plan on meeting in the parking lot at 11am, I'll be wearing a Sticky Designs Hoody or T-Shirt. We'll explore JAG weather permitting.  We will start out on the Lake Loop Trail.

JAG Trails - We'll plan to leave JAG around 2pm to head over to late lunch/early dinner where we can chat about what we shot and also show some photos.

Lake Loop 1/3 Mile

Jones Creek 1/3 Mile

Lower Ravine 1/10 Mile

Upper Ravine 1/3 Mile

Live Oak 1/2 Mile

Rosemary Ridge 1 Mile

JAG has an APP so make sure to download it, if you have a smart phone or tablet that allows.


Recommended Skill Level: All

Recommended Equipment: Camera, possibly monopod or tripod

Costs: There is no cost to go into the Arboretum.

    Got there a little late and missed seeing many of you. The weather was just perfect. I'm sure we will be meeting up again when the flowers are in bloom.
