St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge Trails

1255 Lighthouse Rd
St Marks FL 32355

The Wildlife Refuge is located about 25 miles south of Tallahassee, and has something in store for everyone. Hikers can leisurely stroll their way down paved and unpaved trails, which vary in length from a quarter of a mile, to 12 miles (or more, for those combining trails, or those on the Florida National Scenic Trail). Bikers can utilize dirt and paved roads, and several trails, such as the Levee Trail, are open to horseback. Throughout the refuge, you are pretty much always near water, so there’s also plenty of opportunities for canoeing and kayaking, as well as fishing.

Featured Uses: hiking, biking, horseback riding, birding, educational programs, fishing, paddling, painting, photography, dogs allowed (on leashes)

Access: 1255 Lighthouse Rd, St Marks, FL 32355

Fees: $5 car entrance fee (annual passes are available)

Operational Hours: Daylight hours (gate on Lighthouse Rd. opens at 6 a.m.)

Amenities: picnic tables and shelters (in St. Marks and Panacea Units), observation decks, info kiosks (20 throughout the park), Visitors’ Center, Nature’s Classroom building, boat launch (bring your own canoes/kayaks), butterfly garden, parking, horse trailer parking, restrooms (near picnic areas)
