Stopped by here while driving the scenic loop. Nice to be away from the crowds, cars and sidewalks along A1A.

The Fairchild oak must be seen. Beautiful giant live oak tree. One of the largest and oldest in the U.S. Please respect and care for this natural treasure. Hiking path also started at parking lot near the tree.

Been here many times. Love the history behind the place. Kids can roam freely without one worrying. If able to rent canoe or kayak.........do and enjoy the wildlife on the waterways.
