UNF Nature Trails back to normal, except Red Maple Boardwalk

Most of the nature trails have reopened after Hurricane Irma.

UNF’s nature trails were closed due to safety concerns after Hurricane Irma. Multiple fallen trees and miscellaneous debris blocked pathways, and closure signs were posted at each entry.

The nature trails are now cleared by Physical Facilities and all trail lines are open, except for the Red Maple Boardwalk.

The Red Maple Boardwalk has been completely closed due to damage caused by Hurricane Matthew last Fall. The UNF Student Government passed legislation that granted $200,000 worth of funding to assist in these repairs back in February.

“I am happy to say that the Red Maple Boardwalk project has started,” said Associate Director of Recreation Operations Heather Kite. “We will update the campus about its completion date, which is estimated to be Jan. 1, 2018.”
