This little boardwalk into the salt marsh is usually quiet. There are about a dozen parking places, and usually no many people. It is very natural. Even if you don't see raccoons, you will see tracks in the mud at low tide.

This is a beautiful retreat within the city. Mix of trees, swamp, wildlife and more. Shorter walk then I was expecting however.

Wanted a place to take a stroll. Was disappointed that we did not see wildlife other than a few birds. No fish or anything in the water. Nice place for a walk.

This is a very nice, well maintained and peaceful ecological reserve in the middle of Jacksonville Beach. Heavily wooded and a great boardwalk and even the nearby traffic is hardly noticeable. Buggy in the summer if it's been raining, but a nice walk in the...More
