- Bulow Creek Canoe Trail is recognized as a State Canoe Trail traveling between the Bulow Plantation Ruins State Historic Site and Bulow Creek State Park. The trail begins in the historic site and loops upstream to Bulow Creek, and then returns to the trailhead (7 miles) before continuing on to the Intracoastal Waterway where the water turns brackish and the trail terminates.
Bulow Creek flows through grassy coastal marshes typical of the Atlantic coast. Paddlers will find that each bend of the channel reveals new scenery and opportunity for wildlife sightings that oftentimes include bald eagles, swallow-tailed kites, osprey, wild hog, alligators, and Florida manatees.
Canoes can be rented by the day or hour from the park office. Be sure to grab a trail map, too. Several additional put-in and take-outs are detailed on the map. The boat ramp is large enough to launch small powerboats. Please note that the trail is affected by tides, winds and occasional low water levels. Located five miles north of Ormond Beach on Old Dixie Highway (County Road 4011).
