The Alachua County Preserves sustained impacts from Hurricane Elsa, including flooding and trees uprooting on some trails. Staff has assessed trail conditions and re-opened some preserves to public access. For your safety, please respect preserve and trail closures and stay off of closed trail areas.
Barr Hammock Preserve – Levy Loop Trail is open as of 5 p.m. Friday (8/20/21). A portion of the 6-mile loop trail remains closed, so the full loop trail is not available, but out-and-back trips are possible.
Turkey Creek Preserve remains closed due to unsafe conditions, including flooding, erosion, and hazardous trees.
