Forest Park Trails
At 1,460 acres with 40 miles of hiking trails, Jacksonville’s Forest Park is a wonderful place to get out and get away from it all. Only one mile west of historic downtown Jacksonville, Forest Park offers grand vistas, hiking trails, small creeks, the town’s old reservoir, interpretive markers, and remnants of old gold mines.
Forest Park is a great place to spend time outdoors, hike and ride bikes.
**PLEASE NOTE: Forest Park is closed to all equestrian use until at least May 1, 2021. The City of Jacksonville public works department is actively working with equestrian groups to develop equestrian policies for the park.
