Hiking is a great way to commune with nature, but gosh, it sure can be tough on your feet!
Welcome to the beautiful Julington-Durbin Creek Preserve. This cache is located on the White Diamond Trail which is a 3.9 mile loop. The trail is well defined but loose sand much of the way. You could hike the trail, ride a bike, or ride ahorse just remember to bring plenty of water! The area is located on a peninsula (2,006 acres) formed at the confluence of Julington and Durbin creeks, and has approximately nine miles of shoreline along the two creeks. The peninsula is a long sandy ridge that grades into floodplain swamp and marsh along the creeks’ shores. Natural communities consist of sandhill along the higher areas near the center of the peninsula and flatwoods at the lower elevations. The preserve contains extensive floodplain wetlands, providing water quality and floodplain protection for both creeks and the St. Johns River.
