Hammock Trail at Fort Caroline Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This hike at Fort Caroline National Monument explores a hilly maritime forest before dropping to the St. Johns River and the site of a French bastion from the 1500s. Enjoy not only the human history but also the natural beauty of this shoreline. Give yourself ample time to not only hike the trail, but also to explore the fort and stop in at the visitor center.

Fort Caroline National Memorial is part of the greater
Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve, a sizable agglomeration of tidal waters and lands northeast of downtown Jacksonville. Run by the National Park Service, Fort Caroline preserves the approximate spot where French explorers established a colony in 1564. The original intent of the colony was to find riches such as those the Spaniards were bringing home from elsewhere in the New World, but it ended up having a religion factor as well, since the French Protestants, known as Huguenots, were being persecuted in France."
