We rode bikes through this park doing "The Loop" as it's called in the Daytona & Ormond Beach area.... Lots of marshes, wading birds, and shaded quite a bit by all the trees/spanish moss.... We also hiked/walked the Wahlin loop Trail, which was easy and pretty nice.... Only did the lower section of the 6.8 mile Woods Trail, and that... More

Very easy to fall back in time when you visit this place. Nice and cool and shadey on a hot day. Never see anyone else when we are there either.

There are mosquitoes so bring bug spray as well as water. The hiking trail is designed to allow shorter or longer hikes. The sugar ruins offer lots of... More

We enjoyed seeing the huge oaks here and hiking a bit in the morning before it got too hot. The trails are nice and well kept. The map and signage in the park is poor and hard to understand. We weren't sure if some of the paths were gravel roads or hiking trails. Also, make note that the plantation portion... More

The Fairchild Oak is a well known historical part of Ormond. There are 2 entrances to Bulow Creek Park. The entrance off of Old Dixie Highway has the Fairchild Oak and Fairchild trail. It's not a big park - just a small parking lot with the Fairchild tree, some other large trees, restrooms, and hiking trails. It should be listed... More

We went hiking to the old ruins of the Bulow Plantation Ruins and sugar mill. Nice walk through the real Florida. Then went canoeing.
