Meet Michael Drummond of the county‚Äôs 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).
