Went to see the plantation only to discover that it has not been maintained. It is overgrown so much that you can't walk through the entrance. There is yellow tape that is now torn and worn that was once blocking entry. So drove to a couple of nice beaches close to Lorimers.
There are so many other beautiful places to explore, don't waste your time at Haulover Plantation. The trail is neglected, and I'm not entirely sure what it leads to, as my husband and I turned around after wandering on the trail for quite some time.
