We stopped in here for a quick walk and were not disappointed. There was a short loop that didn't take long at all to walk that was perfect for kids. The huge tree is much more impressive in person!

Hi. I know this may sound like a dumb question, but what is the closest parking area to the Fairchild Oak? Last time I went there I think I parked on the opposite side of the park from where the Fairchild Oak tree is. Thanks in advance!

I do believe they are. Since I don't (unfortunately) have a dog now, I would suggest asking the FL State Parks office.
