overview

Description:

Bulow Creek is a gentle stream that begins at Bulow Plantation Historic State Park and ends downstream at the Intracoastal Waterway. As you approach the Intracoastal Waterway, the water begins to turn brackish. Much of the trail flows through grassy coastal marsh typical of the Atlantic Coast. As an option, you can paddle upstream from the initial launch point about 3.5 miles until the creek becomes too narrow.

In 1836, Seminole Indians destroyed the prosperous Bulow Plantation where the Bulow family grew sugar cane, cotton, rice, and indigo. Ruins of the former plantation – a sugar mill, a unique spring house, several wells, and the crumbling foundations of the plantation house and slave cabins – show how volatile the Florida frontier was in the early 19th century.

Because of its scenic nature, Bulow Creek is a Florida designated paddling trail.
