If you have some time and want to see something that has been around for 2000 years, a drive to Bulow Creek State Park is worth it. The tree is very near the parking lot and is a wonder to see. Branches come off of the tree, dip to the ground, then grow bak up in the air. The trunk... More

This is the ruins of a sugar plantation's sugar mill from the 1800's. We learned about the history of the time and were able to view the remains of the sugar mill. A very peaceful setting. The signage was very good and told us what each segment of the ruins had been used for. They have left the roads in... More

Stopped in at state park. No entry fee. Restrooms and picnic area. Trail starts and go 6.8 miles one way. I walked in 1.5 miles and returned. Some tree damage from last storm? Nice to get out and enjoy nature.

Not far from the Ormond Tomb, this park features several decades-old oak trees, plus a three-mile nature trail. Also of interest is the fact that the park ranger lives on site.

This is a beautiful park. Unfortunately, we were there shortly after Hurricane Matthew, and as a result, most of the hiking trail was still closed. The Fairchild oak tree is an incredible site to see.

A lot of people seem to be getting this state park confused with Bulow Plantation Ruins State Park, which is located a short distance away in Flagler Beach. I must say, we visited both of these parks on the same day and we liked this one MUCH better. First of all, it's free. Secondly, the magnificent tree is awe inspiring.... More

This park is basically divided by Walter Boardman - a road. There are trails from the south end, cross Walter Boardman and hike to the north end. At the south end you'll find the amazing Fairchild Oak reputed to be over 2,000 years old. It's absolutely amazing. The north end of the park offers the remains of a sugar mill... More
