Woodland Trails

Behind its historic enclave, trendy restaurants and quaint storefronts, Jacksonville is endowed with a wild side, including 18 miles of connecting interpretive and recreational trails in the 320-acre Jacksonville Woodlands, and the 1,100-acre Forest Park, with 15 miles of vistas, hiking trails, creeks, the town's old reservoir, interpretive markers and remnants of old gold mines.

Hikers during any season can use a number of route possibilities to provide anything from an easy stroll for grandma and the kids to a challenging tour for those so inclined.
