1. Old Beach Road Marker
Inscription.  In the early 1800's this road was known as the "Old Beach Road". It went from "Old Kings Road" to the Atlantic Ocean, crossing Bulow Creek and the Intracoastal Waterway. This was also the original entrance road to Bulow's Plantation. Today it looks very similar as it did when Bulow Plantation was in operation.

3. Bulow Woods Hiking Trail (4/10 mile east of marker)
This trail leads into an old hammock, a deep shaded forest where live oak and other hardwood trees have grown undisturbed for centuries. The land is low and may be seasonally flooded. It drains into a brackish marsh along Bulow Creek. Cisco ditch, part natural and part man made, adds further variety to this four mile hiking loop.
