Meet field trip leader Matt Bruce for a 6.7-mile hike along Levy Lake’s dike trail (though you can turn back at any time). We’ll be birding marsh, wet prairie, and woodland edges in search of migrant warblers, flycatchers, and swallows.
To reach the trailhead, drive south on US-441 from Gainesville. Across from Lake Wauberg, turn right onto Wacahoota Road (County Road 18). Go roughly half a mile and, just after the I-75 overpass, turn left onto SE 11th Dr. and continue all the way down to the parking area.
Difficulty: 3 (may involve elevation change, uneven terrain, and/or walking distances greater than two miles).
