For those longing to walk, bike, or drive the beautiful canopy road into Fort Clinch, your long wait is over. Today, with little fanfare and no notice, Fort Clinch State Park opened its gates. As of 10:47 a.m., the phone message recording is still announcing the state park is closed, as does the park website.
Indications are the campgrounds are closed, as is the fort, but bike and hiking trails have re-opened. For those who wish to swim at the beach, bathrooms are available. We are waiting information from the park manager to confirm.
