Meet Michael Drummond of the county’s Department of Environmental Protection at the Sunoco gas station on US-441 in Micanopy to carpool down the road to Barr Hammock. The majestic Barr Hammock forms a land bridge between Ledwith and Levy Prairies, and is a county jewel that provides habitat for a wide diversity of upland and wetland species. Fun fact: The point in Alachua County that’s farthest from any road is in Barr Hammock.

Difficulty: 2 (may involve uneven terrain one to two miles).

  1. Will you be traveling via Wacahoota road?

  2. Is this off of Wacahoota road?

  3. If memory serves, this is a different entrance/location from the Wacahoota Rd parking area. It was off of 234 west of I-75

    • That’s correct. This is a different part of the Preserve. The entrance off 234 takes you through a hardwood hammock. This is a dike trail with a marsh on one side and woods on the other.
