Elachee Nature Science Center serves as an environmental-education component of the 1,500-acre Chicopee Woods Nature Preserve, established by the city of Gainesville in 1978. Several short trail loops meander through the upper Piedmont foothills surrounding the science center, while longer paths descend along wooded slopes to Chicopee Lake and Elachee’s Aquatic Studies Center. The hike described here traces a loop through forested hills and wetlands areas surrounding the lake.
