If you'd like to see the "real Florida", this is a good place to hike. The trail from the parking lot off Mt. Pleasant Rd. is only about a half mile to where the original owner of the land lived. You can see the remains of his cabin, and if you choose, visit his gravesite at the little cemetery inside. You can walk the short loop, a longer loop, or a one way walk past "Alligator lake", (named for a reason, I suppose) that exits into another parking lot, this one off Ft. Caroline Rd. You're in the marsh, you can walk out to see the St. Johns River, you can just enjoy the "real Florida."
