Brought bikes, the trials were seriously overgrown and trees were down. A mess! Lots of tree roots,mud and bugs. Road in two miles and went back. Very disappointed first park in Florida that the trails weren’t maintained. Maybe nicer in winter

We stopped specifically to see the Fairchild Oak and it stands there greeting visitors at the parking area. It's truly a thing of beauty! It was hot and humid the day we visited, so I'll return to walk the nature trails. Highly recommend!

this is a well preserved ruins with a small out-door museum of various items found around the grounds. Burned during the Indian War. Parking is near by and easy access.
