FELASCO HAMMOCK STATE PRESERVE
This 6,500-acre preserve has one
of the finest examples of the climax mesic hammocks remaining in Florida. The limestone outcrops and extreme changes in elevation provide
conditions for many species of hardwood trees. Other plant communities include
sandhill, hydric hammock and swamp. Sinkholes, creeks, rare plants and vast
amounts of wildlife are also found at San Felasco.
In addition to self-guided walks, park rangers offer
group hikes and horseback rides into the preserve's
interior upon request.
San Felasco Hammock State Preserve is located
four miles northwest of Gainesville on S.R. 232.
