We stopped here briefly to do some birding and sightseeing as we drove through the area. There are so many great birds here and most are easy to see! Great walks and places to escape the everyday. Beautiful trees and ocean views as well.

We were there about an hour and we had the perfect weather! There were a few other people hiking but it wasn't crowded on a Saturday. And we had no problem getting a parking spot.

Nature at its’ best! Boneyard beach is about a 10 minute walk from the parking lot, but it’s well worth it. This beach is even better than the similar one we recently visited on Jekyll Island. We were here this time last year, and it seems as if more trees closer to the shore line are now covered with sand. This will be a truly unique stop while you’re in the JAX area.

Little Talbot Island is a wonderful place to visit, cook out, walk, and enjoy the water. Advise caution with the water and riptides/currents.

This was my first experience with being able to drive my vehicle right out onto the beach and hop in for a swim. I have lived next to beaches through out my whole life. Including both east coast and west coast and even on islands in the Pacific. So, to be able to drive your car out on the sand right next to the ocean is really cool.

The beach itself is really neat, driftwood beach. I went on a weekday and had the beach to myself majority of the time. There really isn't much parking, and was hard to see from the road, nearly missed it. The "park" area itself looks like just campsites, and doesn't have real bathrooms, just the portable toilets, nowhere to wash your hands or your feet when you leave the beach--so I don't really know where the $3 fee is going.

But, the beach itself still gets 5 stars because it's left natural and beautiful. I saw hermit crabs, fish, stingrays and shark teeth. Fyi, the hike to the beach is a bit longer than it looks, about 10-15 minutes.

If you’ve never seen a boneyard, it’s worth a stop.
We stumbled across a similar beach in Jekyll Island that we liked a little better.
If you’re in the Jacksonville area stop and see this wonder of nature.
Beware of the giant spiders on the trails to the beach.

wonderful place, looking forward to going back once the beach access is repaired. we were lucky to be there with a strong offshore breeze so the fabled mosquitoes were nowhere to be found.

Visited at dead low tide on a Sunday afternoon. I got the last space in the parking area at the Black Rock trailhead. See that they are now collecting $3/day at this location due to its increased popularity with the bike trail. They did a controlled burn in part of the park which is quite evident as you get 50 yards down the trail, but the reforestation is going strong. It was good to see they have cut into the bank to create several stepdowns rather than having to negotiate a steep "cliff" as before. However, with the concentration of deadfall at the bottom of the access, strongly advise against accessing this point two hours before and after high tide due to the potential danger of leg entrapment or being knocked over and impaled on many of the sharp branch ends. Alternative is to access the beach at the northern access point (Driftwood Beach).

Natural unspoiled beauty doesn't get much better than this. This place of old dead trees is so full of life. The sights are wonderfully peaceful and relaxing. I could spend hours there.
