Jacksonville Woodlands Trails

With over 16 miles of trails in the Woodlands, it’s easy to find a loop or destination that’s just right for the day.

There are several trailheads that serve as starting points:

  • Britt Gardens — park in the lots across California Street, near the library and post office. Cross California at the crosswalk and continue up the trail to the Britt Grounds, or walk up 1st Street to the Britt entrance.
  • Above Britt — Go up 1st Street to Fir Street. Follow Fir Street up, past the Britt Grounds to a dirt parking area.
  • To access the Beekman Woods, park in the Beekman House parking area off East California Street.

NOTE: No horses are allowed on the trails. The combination of horses (along with their droppings), dogs and people on the trails creates too much congestion as well as trail damage and will no longer be permitted.
