Dunns Creek State Park
Located south of a sharp bend in the St. Johns River, more than 6,200 acres of natural communities are represented in Dunns Creek State Park. These natural communities include sandhills, covered with longleaf pines, wiregrass and sand pine scrub. These protect several endangered and threatened species, such as the gopher tortoise and other native animals. A picnic and hiking area is located on U.S. 17, north of Pomona Park. The 1.5-mile hiking and bicycling trail takes visitors to the pristine waters of Blue Pond.
