Tour #28: Walk or Jog the Bridges, Riverwalk or Treaty Oak

Thursday, June 25, 9:00 AM – 10:30 AM Tour Price: FREE

Jacksonville is the City of Seven Bridges. On this tour you will get to walk or jog across two of them. It is a very pleasant route with lots of views of the gorgeous St. John’s River, the scenic Riverwalk on both banks, and you will see the oldest bridge in Florida, the Florida East Coast Railroad Bridge, which connects the FEC to the NS and CSX.

The first group will jog West along the Northbank Riverwalk, pass by the Landing and the CSX Headquarters building. They will then ascend the Riverwalk spiral ramp and take the pedestrian bridge across the FEC railroad tracks. Continuing West on the Riverwalk as far as the YMCA, the group will stop for a rest break, restrooms, and water. The group will then jog on the sidewalk East to the Acosta Bridge and jog up the ramp, across the St. John’s River, and back down the other side. Turning left, the group will jog to the Treaty Oak and stop for their second rest break. From the Treaty Oak, the group will jog West to the School Board building, and back to the West on the Southbank Riverwalk as far as the Main St. Bridge. The group will then jog up the Main St. Bridge East sidewalk and back down to the North bank and return to the hotel. (About 4 Miles)

The second group will walk West along the Northbank Riverwalk, pass by the Landing and then turn North at the CSX Headquarters building. They will then walk East on Water St. and ascend the Acosta Bridge ramp on the east sidewalk, cross the St. John’s River, and back down the other side. Turning left, the group will walk to the Treaty Oak and stop for a restroom break. From the Treaty Oak, the group will walk to the Main St. Bridge. The group may decide to extend their walk with a detour along the Southbank Riverwalk. Public restrooms and water fountains are available on the Riverwalk. The group will then walk up the Main St. Bridge East sidewalk and back down to the North bank and return to the hotel. (About 2 Miles)
