The park is an ideal location for learning history. Kingsley Plantation and Fort Caroline are interesting to see what happened here so many years ago. The park is made of different units that are scattered around the Jacksonville area. It is worth the drive to see all the different sections. Many have hiking trails that move through a variety of different Florida habitats. A true hidden gem that most do not realize is a National Park unit.

Timucuan Preserve covers a large area north of Jacksonville and surrounds a few of Florida's state parks. There are several sites within preserve. We stopped at Fort Caroline and at the Ribault Monument. We also drove through a section of the preserve while traveling along the coast.

Much of the preserve is wetlands. Perhaps the most notable feature of the preserve is the beautiful trees which are covered with Spanish moss. It's a good place to walk. The trails we found we mostly shaded.

As Fort Caroline was still closed, we just explored Red, Black & Green trails at Spanish Pond entrance. Most parts of trails have shade and easy to walk. Feeling fantastic to see crabs, snoonbil birds and osprey. And the story of Mr Willie Browne inspired me much. Next time we will explore Theodore Roosevelt area, which is on the other side.

This preserve is part of the National Park Service and includes several other attractions. It is a place where one can boat or fish, however one needs to adhere to state licensing and regulations. There are, also, hiking and walking trails.

Thankfully, we kept driving because our GPS just got us to the preserve. I would use the name next time. All we did that afternoon was the plantation. Found it interesting, yet appalling To again cone face to face with our American history. Beautiful setting and in process of reclaiming it’s history.

A very well maintained area full of beautiful trees, birds, wildlife and scenic trails. Wear good shoes and make sure to take insect repellent. A great view of Florida wetlands and nature.

The Preserve is close to a friends home so we decided to visit. The the vegetation was beautiful along the easy hiking trail. Reminder take mosquito repellent! I was not aware of the Timucuan Indians so it was a good history lesson too.
