About Pumpkin Hill Creek Preserve State Park

East of Jacksonville`s skyscrapers and west of the beaches, this Pumpkin Hill Creek Preserve State Park protects one of the largest contiguous areas of coastal uplands remaining in Duval County. The uplands protect the water quality of the Nassau and St. Johns rivers, ensuring the survival of aquatic plants and animals, and providing an important refuge for birds. Wildlife is abundant and ranges from the threatened American alligator to the endangered wood stork. Equestrians, hikers, and off-road bicyclists can explore more than 16 miles of trails that wind through the park`s many different natural communities. The park also provides a shoreline canoe/kayak launch on Pumpkin Hill Creek. For more information, please visit the State Park website.

Pumpkin Hill Creek Preserve State Park is part of a larger area known as the 7 Creeks Recreation Area which collectively encompasses over 5600 acres of contiguous conservation lands that also includes Betz-Tiger Point Preserve, Cedar Point Preserve, Cedar Point (NPS), Bogey Creek Preserve and Jim Wingate Preserve which are managed in partnership.  The 7 Creeks Recreation Area offers more than 30 miles of natural-surface trails that could occupy days of hiking, biking, horseback riding, and exploring diverse ecosystems. And, the unspoiled lands are surrounded by expansive saltmarsh of Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve that provide an extensive web of tidal creeks for kayakers, boaters, paddleboarders and fishermen.  For more information, please visit 7CreeksJax.org
