Paynes Prarie Preserve State Park is one of our local gems. Nestled between Gainesville and Micanopy, the prairie is over 22,000 acres and contains amazing wildlife, including alligators, wild horses, bison, and numerous bird species. This trail, the one we walked on this last Saturday in December, is the La Chua Trail. We capped off our 5 mile hike with dinner and drinks at Satchel’s Pizza.
It was a most perfect Saturday.
