Activities & Features


Palmetto Trail is an easy hike in Crooked River State Park near Jacksonville. This trail is kid friendly and dog friendly, so long as your furry kids are on leash. The park says "this 1.5-mile trail highlights south Georgia’s pine flatwoods, one of the most endangered ecosystems in the world. Its plants and animals are well adapted to periodic fires that maintain a habitat dominated by longleaf pine, saw palmetto and wiregrass. The open woods are ideal for watching bluebirds, nuthatch, osprey, woodpeckers, warblers and other birds. Gopher tortoises and endangered indigo snakes depend on this habitat for survival. Look for fruit-bearing plants such as blueberries, muscadine grapes, sparkleberry, wax myrtle and gallberry." There is camping available in Crooked River State Park.
