This park is completely disabled accessible. Persons with wheelchairs and parents with strollers should have no difficulty. At this time (11 October 2006) the education center & the farm are not open to the public.

Camp Milton served as the Confederate Headquarters for the Military District of Florida, and is considered one of Jacksonville’s historical treasures. The Civil War Discovery Trail, created a decade ago by the Civil War Preservation Trust, tells the comprehensive history of the Civil War.

Once you locate the park follow the trails to your goal.

Take the green path (.31 miles in length) to the Third Union Invasion. Follow path to the Battery Park Live Oak. Take the footpath, which bears off to the right, leading you down the Earthen Works Trail (boardwalk .68 miles in length). Imagine yourself in a pitched battle, with nothing but these earthen works and the forest to protect you. Return to the Trail Path (Green), and seek the well. Take the path behind the well for a respite in the circle on the American Forest Trail (.27 miles in length). Take the right fork and cross the Campaign Bridge at McGirt's Creek. Pause and listen to the quiet of this wooded haven, then re-cross the bridge & follow the path, taking the right fork across another Campaign Bridge. Stay on the American Forest Trail till you come to the Rail Trail. Rest yourselves at the bicycle rack, then look for the horse trail, which crosses the American Forest Trail & runs parallel to the Rail Trail. From the bike rack take ten steps (5 paces) off the American Forest Trail to the horse trail, heading roughly NE along it for 30 paces. On your right you'll see a tree with four trunks. Turn due north and walk to the tree with a pinecone obscuring a knothole. The Master waits within.
