Learn all about Floridas French roots in a fun relaxed natural park settings. So the Fort Caroline area is broken up into different close by areas, a couple of them with trails.
There is the Visitor Center/Fort which also has a petty nice nature trail to hike down. The Fort is smallish but this is good for adults who don't want to walk another step but fantastic for kids to run around and whoop and holler due to the lovely lush green grass, and all can enjoy the view.
Then there is the Ribault Monument, again smallish. Pull into the parking lot, climb the steps and there you have it, the most beautiful panoramic view!
And a short drive away, Spanish Pond, excellent trail for a jog, brisk walk or a leisurely stroll.
We did all 3 of these in about 2ish hours, although we did not complete the Spanish pond trail hike. Fort Caroline may not be a behemoth but it sure does pack a lot of educational punch and natural beauty into a very manageable punch.
