While the Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park is "off the beaten path" it’s a place that is definitely worth a day trip for residents of South Florida. Here are some of the reasons you and your family will enjoy visiting the Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park this summer.

New Mountain Bike Trail Loop

A nine-mile single track mountain biking and hiking trail developed and sponsored by the Suwannee Bicycle Association opened a couple of years ago. There was already a double-track 10-mile trail that overlooks the river.

The natural beauty of this unspoiled region of the Sunshine State quietly replenishes the soul. It’s no wonder that the nostalgic tune, "Old Folks At Home," initiated tourism to Florida.

Take a hike!

Hike the many trails through the park including one of the most beautiful sections of the Florida National Scenic Trail, also known as the Florida Trail. During the spring, splashes of pink azalea and dogwood trees in bright white are seen against the mossy oaks. Close to the river, the cedar trees provide shade. The beauty is breathtaking.

Quilt Show & Sale

Workshops, keynote speakers, and demonstrations are the highlights along with the 200 quilts on display.

Dulcimer Retreat

Jam session, concerts and workshops provide a unique opportunity for fans of this sweet-sounding instrument.
