Uniquely located on a peninsula formed at the confluence of Julington and Durbin Creeks, the Julington-Durbin preserve provides visitors with many trails through natural communities ranging from sandhill to lower flatwood to lush floodplain swamp and marshes. Julington-Durbin Preserve’s nine miles of shoreline offers visitors beautiful scenic views of both Julington and Durbin Creeks. Trails good for hiking, biking, or horseback riding with some trails totaling 6.1 miles round trip are located in the Preserve. You can explore the creeks surrounding the Preserve from the boat ramp at Hood Landing (12803 Hood Landing Road) or the kayak launch at the Palmetto Leaves Regional Park South Entrance off Old St. Augustine Road, across from the Bartram Trail Shopping Center. Or visit the Bartram Canoe Trail kayak launch at 5231 Racetrack Road. This is a great place to kayak in a completely natural setting.
