Thank you to the National Park Service for offering this nice trail at Fort Caroline National Memorial. I enjoyed hiking on the trails and touring the museum at the visitor center. There is an easy 1 mile nature trail that loops around, and a three mile moderate hiking trail near the Spanish Pond trail head. Enjoy your time here, I look forward to hiking the trails again soon.
Great group of Employees. Helpful, kind, full of information. Pleasant walking trail to Fort remains. Neat Oven to make whatever you want. Met a lovely family and children on a Fort trip along coast. We shared ideas.
I learned a new piece of history after visiting, thank you. Beautiful clean grounds, replica fort and village set up. A few docks to spot dolphins or manatees if your lucky.
