Barr Hammock Preserve is a 6,000-acre Preserve that has two entrances. The northern Levy Loop Trail and the Southern Trail entrance. The trails that are accessible from each trailhead currently do not connect.
The 6.5 mile Levy Loop Trail is an unpaved loop that runs atop the levy and circumnaviates a 1,200-acre wet prairie, providing elevated viewing opportunities for wildlife and birding. Colorful shows of wildflowers can be seen in spring and fall. Beware of alligators. NO DOGS ALLOWED.
Barr Hammock south entrance provides 13 miles of trails for hikers, bikers, and equestrian users. Trails traverse primarily forested areas. No water available in the parking area.
No restrooms. No picnic facilities.
No removing, killing or harassing of wildlife without written permission from Alachua County.
