Miles of trails at Pumpkin Hill Creek Preserve offer an immersive experience in Florida's coastal upland habitats. Explore Longleaf Pine ecosystems of sandhill and scrubby flatwoods, basin swamps and salt marsh creeks. Hike to the gazebo and eat a picnic lunch under the shade. Visit the eagle's nest during the winter months for wildlife viewing. Get educated about exotic invasive plants at the AlterNative interpretive garden trail. Extend your hike and use our trails to connect to adjacent City of Jacksonville parks Betz Tiger Point, Cedar Point and the Jim Wingate Preserve.
The Nature Trails are anchored at the main parking area and are open to hiking, bicycling, and horseback riding. View a map of the hiking trails or the multi-use trails here. Both the hiking and multi-use trails connect to city trails at the north, south and western edge of the park.
