Etoniah Creek State Forest
Hiking, biking, paddling, camping, and other outdoor recreation in Etoniah Creek State Forest west of Palatka. The forest is home to the picturesque Etonia Creek ravine, which can be seen along the Florida Trail. It is also known for its botanically unique Etonia rosemary (Conradina etonia), which was first found here and is only found in the Palatka area. The Palatka-Lake Butler Trail passes through the south end of the forest, while the Florida Trail traverses it diagonally. Several other trails offer shorter hikes.
