Welcome to Pumpkin Hill Creek Preserve State Park
Nestled between the beaches and big city of Jacksonville, the park lets you immerse yourself in nature in the pine flatwoods that protect the water quality of the Nassau and St. Johns rivers.
The expansive pine flatwoods protect the water quality of the Nassau and St. Johns rivers, ensuring the survival of aquatic plants and animals and providing an important refuge for birds. Wildlife is abundant and ranges from the threatened American alligator to the endangered wood stork.
Equestrians, hikers and off-road bicyclists can explore over 15 miles of multi-use trails that wind through the park's many different natural communities and connect to the trail systems of the adjacent city preserves for even more miles of exploration. Pumpkin Hill Creek can be accessed at the canoe/kayak launch or by either of the two creek overlook trails, which are perfect fishing spots.
