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. 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 Julington Creek and Durbin Creek that surround the preserve starting from the boat ramp at Clark’s Fish Camp (12903 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. These creeks are beautiful places to kayak in a completely natural setting.
