The Bulow Woods Trail travels between the Plantation Ruins Historic Site and Bulow Creek State Park.

The Bulow Woods Trail is a 6.8 mile hiking trail that runs from the Fairchild Oak in Bulow Creek State Park 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. A primitive campsite is available to backpackers. An overnight permit is required for camping. The permit, trail maps and other information may be obtained at the park office of Tomoka State Park, 4.5 miles south of Bulow Creek State Park on Old Dixie Highway.

Directions: From Interstate 95, (South of St. Augustine) Take Exit 90 east to County Road 2001 - the Old Kings Road. A park sign on Old Kings Road directs visitors to Plantation Road, location of trailhead. (The park is approximately three miles west of Flagler Beach.)
