Millers Landing – Located just off of Meridian Road, Millers Landing is by far one of the most beautiful canopy roads in Tallahassee. Follow the winding road beneath the high oak canopy all the way to the end and you will be rewarded with a breathtaking view of Lake Jackson. Along the way you will pass public biking and hiking trails that circumnavigate the beautiful woods surrounding Forest Meadows Park. These trails, which explore the area known as Elinor Klapp-Phipps Park, can be accessed via the trailhead on Miller Landing Road or through the Forest Meadows sports complex nearby, both of which offer parking. Elinor Klapp-Phipps Park is located on what was once the Meridian Plantation area of Ayavalla Plantation.
The area’s long agricultural history is apparent as you make your way down the picturesque canopy road. At one point, on the right, you will see the remains of one of the old farmhouse structures. After the civil war, much of the land was maintained by tenant farmers. At the end of the road, the landing allows water-worthy vessels to navigate Lake Jackson, a fact which proved especially useful in Tallahassee’s early agricultural days; hence, the name ‘Miller’s Landing.”
