Located about 30 minutes from downtown Jacksonville is Betz Tiger Point Preserve. While there, you can enjoy great views of the saltwater marsh. The Preserve is home to abundant wildlife including birds, gopher tortoises, dolphins and reptiles.
While there, you must take advantage of the 3 miles of hiking, bicycle and equestrian trails. The overlook trail is paved, leading to stunning views from observation deck. Make sure to bring a fishing pole and cast a line from the boardwalk.
If you prefer to explore on the water, there is a canoe launch a few hundred feet south of the Preserve. The salt water marsh is the perfect place to paddle.
