President Roosevelt was the father of natural parks that were preserved for us to enjoy today. Beautiful trees and waterways.

The Theodore Roosevelt area (part of the Timucuan Ecological & Historic Preserve) is a hidden gem tucked away less than a mile off of Wonderwood/McCormick Rd. It is easily accesible and offers multiple trails through woodland and saltmarsh. The trails are plenty wide to accomodate...More

Went over to take a look when visiting Jacksonville. Nice preserve for hiking with a moderate sized parking area. Signage taking you to the location is a bit lacking so use your GPS.
