East Loop Trail: Jonathan Dickinson State Park Professional Review and Guide

"This 11,500-acre park is named for Jonathan Dickinson, who in 1696 was shipwrecked about 5 miles from here. Dickinson was probably one of the first Europeans to sample palmetto berries, a staple of the local Jaegas Indians diet. He reported, “They taste like rotten cheese steeped in tobacco juice.” Obviously the berries are an acquired taste.

This trail follows a varied path, first going through sand pine scrub, then across Old Dixie Highway (old US 1), and into stands of live oak. The Scrub Jay campsite is about 5 miles in, including the side trail to the site."
