“Nice park for a day hike”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2013

We hiked the road trail and then visited the ruins of the old sugar plantation. There is a creek for kayaking and there are many large oak trees along the circular pathway. 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 photo opportunities. Hint: combine this visit with the garden park as well as the coastal park at Flager Beach.

“We enjoyed this place but beware of operating days!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2013

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 of the park is closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays! Who closes a park like that in the middle of the week. We looked up all the details for this park on the state park website and didn't see anything about midweek closures. Also, bring bug spray! The ticks and mosquitos were bad!

“Fairchild Oak”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2013

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 on here as it's own destination, and not lost in the Bulow Creek heading. However....since it is technically a part of Bulow Creek, it has to be mentioned here! You can get to it if you hike the trail from the Bulow entrance on Walter Broadman, but if you are driving the Loop you can pull in this entrance for a quick look. There is a sign stating that it is 2000 years old, and it is prettty impressive. There is also a dilapidated block structure on the grounds with a sign stating that it was once a land sale office in 1915.

“A Florida Hike”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2013

This was the perfect Florida hike -- quiet with lots of long trails, scrub palms, oaks dripping with moss and lots of tall pines. We enjoyed the quiet, natural, old-Florida feel to our hike.
