The website doesn't give any directions on where to find the trails, where to park or if there is a parking fee. The brochure gave an address of 1 UNF Dr. Lot 100. That is where the parking lot is. There's a parking fee of...More

Trails of all lengths with restrooms and plenty of areas for picnicking including a small island, which is easily accessible. Most trails are shady, which is nice, but there is a large pond / small lake, so bring bug spray. Large variety of scenery and...More

If you are a runner and love trails, then head to this place! The trails are located within the University of North Florida location. You can easily get about 3-6 miles in the trails. The views are very pretty! Please keep in mind that they...More

Great trails, some of them with a boardwalk, a couple of large manmade lakes, and wildlife in abundance. You might see an Osprey (the UNF mascot), a Red-Tailed Hawk, a Gopher Tortoise, a Black Racer, or even a WhiteTailed Deer or an Alligator.

A $3 parking fee during the week for use of this resource is inappropriate, particularly considering that most users stay around an hour.
