San Felasco Hammcok Preserve State Park - Creek Sink Trail: Hiking Trail Information and Maps

Alachua County

Gainesville, Florida

Entry Fee: $4 per vehicle, $2 by bike or foot

Offical Website: Florida State Parks

Traffic: Moderate

 

Sink Creek Trail offers a pleasant, 2.3 mile hiking loop through rolling forest hills with a creek, sink hole ponds, and plenty of beech and southern magnolia. For a quicker walk in the woods, follow the Moonshine Creek Trail, a cutoff which lasts about a mile.

 

Though the trails are short, they share the San Felasco Hammock Preserve parking lot, with the much longer Spring Grove Trail just across the street to offer six more miles of hiking or jogging. A seeming favorite among young locals, expect moderate to heavy use.

Dense cover and creeks keep the ground moist year around, with moss and vines in abundance

An enormous laurel oak in the woods

Roots are shallow along the trail, even for this giant laurel oak, so careful not to trip!

Recognize the American Beech by its oval, jagged or toothed, deep green leaves and the beech nut husk
