Egans Creek Greenway

2500 Atlantic Ave., Fernandina Beach, 32034
(904) 310-3350
Daily, sunrise to sunset

Egans Creek Greenway is a dynamic landscape featuring salt marsh and hardwood hammock on the north end (between Atlantic Ave. and Jasmine Rd.), and a reclaimed freshwater swamp and coastal hammock on the south end (between Jasmine Rd. and Sadler Rd). Tidal flow on the north side has been restored and the salt marsh has regenerated. Four miles of interconnecting walking and biking trail loops provide plenty of action fall through spring. Nearly 200 species of birds have been recorded this well watched site. Look for shorebirds such as Wilson’s Snipe, Short-billed Dowitcher, and Greater Yellowlegs, as well as Wood Stork, Green Heron and the occasional Roseate Spoonbill. Look for Swamp Sparrows and Ruby-crowned Kinglets in winter, and Yellow Warblers and Indigo Buntings during migration. Rare visitors recorded on the greenway’s checklist include Snow Goose, Nashville Warbler, Wilson’s Warbler, and Le Conte’s Sparrow. Parking is available at the recreation center on Atlantic Ave., along the right-of-way on Jasmine Street and at the Residence Inn on Sadler Rd., just west of SR A1A.
