San Felasco Hammock Preserve State Park
13201 Progress Blvd. Alachua, FL 32615
This preserve has one of the few remaining mature forests in Florida. The limestone outcrops and extreme changes in elevation provide ideal conditions for many species of hardwood tress, including several champion trees. Bobcats, white-tailed deer, gray foxes, turkeys and many species of songbirds make their homes in the 18 n natural communities found in the preserve. The park offers outdoor adventure to hikers, off-road bicyclists, horseback riders and nature lovers. To ensure solitude and quiet for a true wilderness expert, the southern two-thirds of the park is designated for hiking only. The northern third of the park has horse trails, off-road cycling and hiking.
