The Gainesville-Hawthorne State Trail provides a wonderful opportunity to get outdoors and enjoy cycling, walking, inline skating or horseback riding through a variety of plant communities full of Florida history. If you see a volunteer, thank them for their efforts in all aspects of our operation. We truly could not provide the level of visitor service that we do without them.
Pick up a self-guided tour brochure from one of our kiosks or the Paynes Prairie visitor center, or listen to one of our cellphone tour stops. Learn more or download a guide to area cellphone tour stops at Dial and Discover.
