The Fairchild Oak parking area of Bulow State Park on Old Dixie Hwy is our go-to place for easy walking or biking. The parking area is nicely maintained, and the huge Fairchild Oak is impressive. There are ~9 miles of trails from there - mostly very easy, with a few roots and sandy spots here and there. There are several... More

The local historical importance of this park is profound. I wish it was more accessible, and that money could be found to restore and preserve some of the objects exhibited.

The Fairchild tree is worth the trip. It's a ginormous 400 year old tree, that is just amazing. There are trails that we didn't have time to utilize, but hope to come back and check out.

This park is one of a kind. They have the biggest Oak tree I have ever seen. The Oak tree is estimated to be about 300 to 500 years old.

The ranger at Tomoka State Park told me about Bulow so I drove there after spending the day at Tomoka. So glad I did! The Fairchild Oak was worth the trip! What a majestic site! It was late afternoon and too late to take the 6 mile or 3 mile hiking trail, but I did hike a shorter one to... More

Go and see the mind blowing Fairchild Oak in Bulow Creek State Park. You will go past the path to it (among other beautiful sights along the way and other park entrances) when driving the LOOP.

The huge oak is worth a look and the trails are beautiful! Go in the winter if possible to beat the heat. the park is split into two locations. They are both great.. but if time is limited or if your kids are too bored already just stop for the live oak and take a hike on the awesome trail.... More

I came upon ONLY a section of Bulow Creek State Park as I drove off Highbridge Road to Walter Boardman Lane. I'd been just driving on Highbridge as I'd heard it's pretty - well worth it if you've not yet been. Lovely drive and then came upon what feels like quite fortuitously just a couple of the trail heads that... More

What an awe inspiring site the Fairchild Oak is. Just imagining the things that old tree has seen over the years. The history that tree could tell if it could only talk. lol. Beautiful park and trails.

A large party of a bunch of real witches with funny hats and clothes were by the lake holding hands, in a circle, chanting, and a leader was telling them to look into each other's eyes. They had the whole picnic area reserved and the only bathroom. Basically you drive a loop through the woods, see the remains of a... More
