  • Got a chance to stop by Bayard on Friday afternoon. First visit in a number of months. No cars in either of the parking areas, so was able to take off the shorts and hike nude as soon as the trail turned and the parking area was hidden.
    Set up off the trail in one of the clearing areas and sunned for about an hour before returning to car. Tracks indicated another car or two had been there, but they may have just been turning around. Did see one black snake cross the trail ahead of me; so keep an eye out for the wildlife.

  • Get by there from time to time when traveling through the area. Usually have the place to myself, even in the late afternoon and early evening. Sure has a lot of potential.

  • Agree, not well known; but that is OK as don't want to get too popular and attract the attention of the law. Wonderful trails and plenty of areas to go off trail for more exciting wildlife.

  • This would be a great place but no one knows about it. Located on the west side of St. Johns river off of SR 16. Large wooded area. Because it is at the county line (Clay co.) S.O. patrolls there infrequently. Would be a great cruising location but no one knows about it and it is in a semi-rural area.
