The Hernandez-Capron Trail parallels I-95 here in Brevard County. Laid out in 1838 by U.S. Army during Second Seminole war, it linked King's Road in St. Augustine and forts along St. John's River with Ft. Capron, 4 mi. north of present Ft. Pierce. Branches went to Ft. Dallas (Miami) and Ft. Brooke (Tampa). Named for Capt. Erastus Capron, Brevard section also honored Gen. Joseph Hernandez. Later it was the only inland trail available for settlers. Cattlemen used it up to the 1930s.
