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 places a cool spot to discover. All the history on this land makes it a must see. The kids liked exploring along the trails. Nice screened picnic area and bathrooms.

The plantation is in the thick canopy of the Florida inland and was beautiful and different from the coast. Very lush and relaxing and a reminder about how we mistreated the people we brought here and the people who lived here.

The walk is a short one and very enjoyable, if you can handle it, I would highly recommend the walk.
