Storm Damaged Trail Closure Update

Press release from Alachua County

Turkey Creek Preserve (6300 N.W. 93rd Avenue, Gainesville) is now open to public access (as of 5 p.m. on Friday, August 27, 2021). Three sections of trail are closed due to unsafe conditions, including flooding, erosion, and hazardous trees. Loop routes are still possible with open trails. Visitors should carefully review trail closure maps posted at preserve trailheads before beginning their trip. For visitor safety, please respect preserve and trail closures and stay off of closed trail areas.

All other county preserves with public access are open, but many have standing water on portions of the trails. Learn more about the Alachua County Preserves.
