Timucuan Trail

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

Along the northeast coast of Jacksonville, sections of the developing Timucuan Trail have been built in Big Talbot Island State Park and Little Talbot Island State Park. Both offer beautiful, pristine areas for bird-watching and wildlife viewing, as well as beach access and camping opportunities. On the northern portion of the trail, George Crady Bridge over the Amelia River is safe for pedestrians and bicyclists to use to connect to the Amelia Island Trail.

Eventually, the Timucuan Trail will extend further north to Amelia Island State Park and south to Kathryn Abbey Hannah Park, a distance of 18 miles, all paved. It’s part of the larger trail network known as the East Coast Greenway, stretching from Florida to Maine.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking and trail access can be found in Big Talbot Island State Park (located on State Road A1A North) and Little Talbot Island State Park (12157 Heckscher Drive).

We went to the Northern trail. Most of the trail is out of the sun. Great side trails for exploring. Beautiful little ride and trailhead. read more

The trail is covered by a beautiful canopy and trees. There were lots of deer and birds. I started from the Amelia Island trail and took the foot bridge to get to the Timucuan trail. I loved it. read more
