Hugh Taylor Birch State Park Visitors Guide

The evolution of the park came when Chicago lawyer High Taylor Birch paid a visit to this destination in search of a sequestered area to build a home. He decided to purchase an oceanfront property with 3.5 miles of beachfront. The park has something for everyone when it comes to outdoor activities. Hikers and bikers can traverse the park's scenic trails, while water enthusiasts can rent canoes or kayaks to explore the mile-long freshwater lagoon.

Hugh Taylor Birch State Park features a pedestrian tunnel under A1A for easy access to the designated swimming area on the beach if you’re looking to soak up the sun and enjoy the ocean waves. The park is home to a variety of wildlife, including turtles, butterflies, eastern indigo snakes, and over 200 species of hawks, wading birds, and ducks.
