Phone: 386-676-4050
This park protects one of the largest remaining stands of southern live oak forest along Florida?s east coast. The reigning tree is the Fairchild Oak, one of the largest live oak trees in the south. For more than 800 years it has been a silent witness to human activities along Bulow Creek, including the destruction of the neighboring Bulow Plantation during the Second Seminole War in 1836. Several trails allow hikers to explore the interior of the park, where visitors can see white-tailed deer, barred owls, and raccoons. The Bulow Woods Trail, nearly seven miles long, takes hikers to Bulow Plantation Ruins Historic State Park. Visitors can picnic in a shady pavilion or at a table on the lawn within view of the Fairchild Oak. Located five miles north of Ormond Beach on Old Dixie Highway (County Road 4011).

Picnicking
Picnicking is available for the park visitor. A small pavilion is offered with picnic tables. There are also tables located on the lawn within view of the Fairchild Oak. Restroom facilities are provided.
Trails
There are several trails for exploring the interior of the park. Two trails start from the parking area at Fairchild Oak. The Wahlin Trail is a short loop around a groundwater spring that seeps from a "coquina" rock bluff. The Bulow Woods Trail is a 6.8 mile hiking trail that runs from the Fairchild Oak to Bulow Plantation Ruins State Historic Site. The northern section near Bulow Ruins is recommended for half-day hikes. Starting from the parking area on Plantation Road, the trail crosses open woods before entering Bulow Hammock where the shaded path winds around massive trunks under the cathedral-like canopy of Live Oaks. White-tailed deer, barred owls and raccoons are commonly seen and, occasionally, a diamondback rattlesnake. The hiking trail is open for day use from 8:30 am to sunset.
