Parks and PreservationBlack Hammock Wilderness Area
The Black Hammock Wilderness Area is a 700- acre property acquired as part of a comprehensive effort to preserve significant habitat along the shores of Lake Jesup. The first 1/4 mile of the trail from the parking area is handicap accessible. A round trip hike of approximately 4.5 miles of trails will take you through habitats such as Mixed Hardwood Swamp, Sand Pine Scrub and Pine Flatwoods. Wildlife observed on this site includes the barred owl, white-tailed deer, bobcat and eastern hognose snake. The variety of habitats and beautiful boardwalk and trail system makes this property a popular destination for mountain bikers, hikers, photographers and other outdoor enthusiasts.
The main parking area for the Black Hammock Wilderness Area is on CR 426 at the Barr Street entrance of the Little Big Econ State Forest in Geneva.
