The Bluffs Scenic Shoreline Picnic Area at Big Talbot Island

Click here: or Copy and Paste into Maps: The Bluffs Scenic Shoreline picnic area at Big Talbot Island State Park, Jacksonville, FL 32226

Directions: There is no signage on the road, so please read these directions to find the location. You can input the above address. If you are driving Northbound, you will pass Houston Ave on the left.  Then pass two gravel parking areas on the right. Take the next immediate right. When you turn in, you will see a sign that says "The Bluffs Scenic Shoreline picnic area." If you get to the bridge with a pavilion, you have gone too far. Please park in the loop and meet at the picnic area to check in and get seated.

We will begin at 10:05, so please give yourself extra time in case there are contruction delays on Heckscher.

What to Expect

We will do 3 activities that will teach kids about the rock cycle, types of rocks, and erosion. These will take about an hour. We will then take an 8 minute walk down to the shore area. Kids will play a “rocks and not rocks” game. After this, you are free to stay and explore, or head back at your leisure.

What to Bring

Bugspray, Water bottle, Water shoes and shorts or clothes that can get wet (swimsuits are ok, but we will only be walking on the shore, not swimming)


Please sign a Waiver of Liability at the following address before you arrive:
