Jacksonville is home to many beautiful parks. Timucuan Trail Parks Foundation shares this comprehensive list, with descriptions, of Jacksonville's Timucuan Trail parks.

Little Talbot Island State Park

Little Talbot Island State Park is one of the few remaining undeveloped barrier islands in Northeast Florida. This park offers more than five miles of magnificent beaches, majestic dunes and undisturbed salt marshes. This park is a true treasure of Northeast Florida. A more than two mile long paved bike path runs along Park Drive from the entrance to the southern tip of the island. Camping facilities and a boat ramp are available. Kayak outfitters are available near the park.

Seaton Creek Historic Preserve

The City of Jacksonville's Preservation Park system has added another crown jewel -- Seaton Creek Historic Preserve, a beautiful 800+ acre preserve located near Thomas Creek (northern Duval County). While the Preserve will be a "working" forest and actively managed for timber, trail blazing has begun to open the Preserve to hikers, off-road bikers and equestrian enthusiasts. Wildlife viewing is spectacular with the pristine marshes and meandering creeks throughout the Preserve- a mecca for nature photographers and artists!
