San Felasco Hammock State Park



self-portrait in the San Felasco Hammock State Park

Today I went on a bike ride out to the San Felasco Hammock State Park which is slightly north-west of Gainesville, Florida, in Alachua County. I've been to the San Felasco Hammock State Park many times before, and it's really a pretty interesting place to go: the park is located on both sides of Millhopper Road though the northern portion is by far the larger. You can go hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding (if you bring your horse and its proof of a negative Coggin's test) there. To access the portion of the park where they bike and horseback trails are you must go to the town of Alachua and enter the park up there though—not from Millhopper Road.

This is not in the park, but by the side of Millhopper Road north-west of Gainesville, Florida, in Alachua County.
