Guana River State Park

Located on A1A in South Ponte Vedra Beach, about 30 miles south of downtown. This park has approximately 9 miles of trails that wind through undisturbed maritime forest, with marsh and intracoastal waterway views. The wide paths are marked by color codes and can be easily followed except on the north end, where the trails leave the park and enter the wildlife management area.You can plan your run with a trail map which provides the distances for each trail. In some places, the sand is soft which will slow you down a little and there are some exposed roots, but for the most part this trail is fairly easy!

The entrance to the park is about one-tenth of a mile north of the Gate Station on A1A. Parking is $3.00.
