A very nice state park with Florida history in its foliage. Some tree roots were absolutely amazing. The entire state park was really nice, extremely clean and you would drive and walk around the entire park. We walked many trails and enjoyed it very much. You could bike ride, skate, walk or drive around. There were some really nice views.

We were down for my son's wedding and took our guests to this beautiful beach and park! It is so natural and we even saw the famous Banyon tree! There are life guards and shuttles from the parking lot which was a nice feature as well.

This is a cozy place just a few yards from the beach (more or less). Lots of trees bushes, including a road going through the whole park. When you get bored on the beach take a walk to here and enjoy the park, not much amenities except rest rooms here though,

This state park is great! It costs about $5 to enter. There is an area that you can park and walk through an underground tunnel over to the beach. There is a long road that loops around the entire park. Towards the halfway point of the loop is a bath house and a play area for kids with swings and... More

Economical park at 6 bucks per carload to access a playground, cook out grills and covered table with nearby bathrooms. Interesting banyan trees and animals will entertain for walks or bike rides through the park. Lots of open areas for game playing or picnic with family

From the outside it does not look like much however once inside it is a natural paradise to be discovered. There are large natural forests with hiking paths throughout, there are areas with pavilions and... More

Last year I took my kids to Hugh Taylor State Park the entry fee was $6.00 and it was $5.00 to rent canoes/kayaks. Since then the price to rent canoes/kayaks has more than tripled to a whopping $18 for 30 minutes! Bike rental cost has also increased to $10 for 30 minutes. Instead of paying these exorbitant bike fees, walk... More

It's about a three mile loop, but the trails are not well marked unless you choose to walk on the paved ways. I found the walking through the mangroves, particularly on a 70 degree day, delightful. You can walk to the ocean beach, as well. Thank you, Hugh Taylor Birch, for making sure we don't forget what old Florida was... More
