  • Mileage: 4.0 mi

Meeting time and place will be determined by the participants, but plan for an afternoon hike, as low tide (-0.38) is in the late afternoon.  We’ll hike Johns River First and then go to Bottle Beach.

Bring binoculars and wear good rain gear.  This trail is flat and easy.  We’ll then drive several miles to Bottle Beach, hike the shore, learn about a fascinating history, and most likely see thousands of shore birds.
