Event: Ancient Dunes Trail Hike


The Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s Anastasia State Park will host an Ancient Dunes Trail Hike program on various dates from January – March 2020.

Come enjoy a guided hike through ancient dunes shaded by a maritime hammock. Discover the park’s natural communities while exploring this unique trail. Although only a mile long, this hike is more challenging than our other trails due to the natural sloping landscape.

Please meet at the Hilltop Picnic Area, near the parking lot, and we will walk into the hammock together. Suggested items to bring are binoculars, comfortable walking shoes, a camera, drinking water, bug spray, and sunscreen. This event is weather permitting and subject to cancellation.

This activity is Junior Ranger Passport Eligible! If you are a Florida State Park Junior Ranger, you can participate in this program to receive a Recreation Stamp in your Junior Ranger Passport.

Program is free with regular park admission fee. ($8.00 per vehicle. Limit 2-8 people per vehicle. $4.00 per single-occupant vehicle. $2.00 per pedestrians, bicyclists, extra passengers, passengers in vehicle with holder of Annual Individual Entrance Pass).
