Written Directions

Coming from the south, the road starts just a few miles NE of Hastings Fl off SR-207. Coming from the north, take I-295 to the SR-13 exit in Jacksonville. Its a busy 6 lane highway here but when it crosses over the Duval-St Johns County line it begins to narrow to 4 lanes and then eventually to a two lane country road.

Scenery

Heading north or south along SR-13 the St Johns River is often in plain site. There are numerous small communities as well with several parks. Lots of live Oaks and other shady trees make this a great ride.





Drive Enjoyment

There are not a lot of twisties although the road, for the most part, follows the river. Nicely paved..not many rough spots or potholes.

Tourism Opportunities

Only a couple of restaurants and a couple local stores on the road. Several small parks.

This was a beautiful ride. It was very hot and humid but as soon as we got under those oaks laden with Spanish moss it was gorgeous. There are some parks along the way, gorgeous views of the river and lovely homes. We also ate at the Outback Crab Shack, and had a wonderful meal!

Great ride to SR 207. From there you can head East to St. Augustine or West to Palatka and pick up 17 to continue further South.
