  Nature trail on the campus of UNF
by HSC123

Even though it is situated in the middle of the city’s booming Southside, the University of North Florida remains a fabulous, albeit unexpected, place for visitors to get in touch with pristine nature. That’s because the campus is surrounded by its own protected nature preserve, complete with wooden and earthen walking trails that lead through dense hardwood hammocks, past teeming wetland areas and over a large lake. This hidden natural playground is home to deer as well as other animal and plant life indigenous to North Florida. The trails are color coded and well marked with several sections taking the form of boardwalks. There is even a pedestrian bridge (pictured in the background). Benches are also scattered throughout and lakeside picnic tables are located at the trails’ entrance/exit area.

Address: University of North Florida campus
