Fort San Marcos de Apalache Historic State Park

Take a journey back in time as you walk leisurely on a self-guided 0.6 mile interpretive trail through park grounds of this National Historic Landmark.  The trail leads through ruins of the various fortresses that once stood on this site. Remains include Confederate earthworks and powder magazine, Spanish bombproof, bastion wall and moat, and gravesites of American soldiers in a small cemetery. Walk the side trail down to a quiet spot at the water’s edge with benches for a scenic view where the St. Marks River joins the Wakulla River and flows out into Apalachee Bay. Tour the museum and get the walking tour brochure before beginning your walk for a better understanding of the history of this site. 

Free park admission, small entrance fee to museum.
