The trails the University of North Florida are open to the public and have a great variety of lengths that both runners and little hikers can enjoy. These well beaten and well maintained trails are located in the school’s 300 acre Sawmill Slough Preserve where mature trees provide ample shade even at mid-day. The kiddos will likely enjoy the winding curves of the 0.19 mile Red Maple Boardwalk! If you hike the loop around Lake Oneida, it is less than 1 mile and goes by an access point to an island where picnic tables are available.
