Bayard Conservation Area

Bayard Conservation Area
Size: 10,320 acres along the western bank of the St. Johns River

November 2012

Kellisa and I finally had the time to try our new Freedom Push Chair on a trail. We drove just under 11 miles from our home to the Bayard Conservation Area, one of our favorite local hiking places. 

Because we had limited time, I decided to follow interior roads as much as possible to my goal of reaching Davis Landing. Our route in red:



Along the path: 


In the middle of the trail, we came across this cottonmouth basking in the sun:

We pushiked 6.66 miles in 1 hour, 58 minutes and 52.78 seconds:

  1. So glad to see you guys had a fun time hiking. The pictures are lovely. But I would advise you guys to not go that near a snake next time.

    1. Thanks for the kind words and warning, but we did stay away from the snake and used our zoom feature for the pictures.

  2. OMG! This kind of adventures with kids can be very dangerous. Because there are lots of dangerous species as well as animals in the forests.
