  • Lovely spot for a walk - there are two trails, one is a fairly short (1/4 mile or so) nature loop the other is a 6 mile straight hike to the Bulow Plantation Ruins State park - both trails are well maintained and offer fairly peaceful walks through the woods and across the salt marsh on the way to the Plantation ruins. There is an enormous live oak estimated to be between 300 and 500 years old that appears to be straight from a fairy story at the parking lot of this park. Please note that there are two sections to this park with separate entrances and parking spots - you can hike from one to the other on the 6 mile hiking trail. The ruins are located a few miles north of Old Dixie Highway off of Kings Rd.
  • We visited Bulow Creek and Bulow Plantation. Both are State Parks in the same area, but we drove from one to the other. The first was an ok area with a shirt uneventful hiking trail. There was a very neat Live Oak estimated at 3 - 5 hundred years old. The Plantation was really neat and worth the visit. The old sugar mill ruins were amazing and very educational.
