“The main spine trail at 140-acre Gordon River Greenway Park.
— Kristen Arendt
Wide, smooth pathways, river views, and native wildflowers make for an enjoyable and easy ride.
Visitor hours: 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.
This is the main spine trail of the Gordon River Greenway. This portion of the 2.3 miles of asphalt, mulch, and boardwalk trails meanders through scrubby flatwood and mangrove communities.
The trail is 12 feet wide and the boardwalk is 10 feet wide and both are designed for passive recreational activities such as walking, jogging, biking, roller-blading, and skateboarding.
The boardwalk crosses the Gordon River, providing a beautiful view of surrounding preserve lands and the Gordon River. At the southern end, a large restoration project has been completed replanting native hammock species and wildflowers. There is a fishing platform and look-out shelter on the south side of the river crossing.
