Barr Hammock Preserve
Location: Gainesville, Fl
GPS Coordinates: 29.516146, –82.307258
Today we decided to walk the Levy Loop trail at the Barr Hammock Preserve. This is an area that just opened to the public for hiking after being acquired by the Alachua County Forever land conservation program. Currently the hiking trails follow a series of dikes that were built years ago to help drain the land for agricultural use. The conservation program is working on returning this land to its’ natural state and to re-establish the flow of water into the prairie. More trails are planned for the future, but the trail now open is a 6.5 mile loop around the Levy Prairie.
Here is a link to the flyer that describes the hike.
Here is the GPS track of the hike:
