Dutton Island Preserves are really two Timucuan Trail parks – Dutton Island I (Dutton Island Preserve) and Dutton Island II (Dutton Island Expansion Park and Preserve). The preserves are located in a pristine salt marsh ecosystem that offers visitors exceptional wildlife viewing. Tranquility awaits visitors along the 3 miles of hiking trails through pine flatwoods and live oak hammocks. Dutton Island I includes a marsh observation viewing deck and fishing pier on the north end and a kayak and canoe launch site on the south end. There is a marked kayak trail among the salt marsh to guide you. There are also hiking trails and boardwalks, a covered picnic area, and restrooms. Primitive camping is available at Dutton Island I (call 904-247-5828 for reservations). Dutton Island II includes hiking trails, several marsh overlooks, two picnic areas, and a kayak landing.
