Overview

Come visit John Mahon Nature Park to experience a wonderful getaway from city life in Gainesville. John was a local man who cared about continued access to beautiful Florida places like this one, and his namesake park continues that cause into the future. While short in length, the trail here provides visitors with plenty of gorgeous scenery to admire in an afternoon.

Description

Starting from the parking area, simply take the trail as it makes a loop around the park.
