Features along the highway include Paynes Prairie State Preserve; the Lake Wauberg, countryside spread with smaller lakes, prairies and rural homesteads; and the historic communities of Micanopy, Rochelle, Evinston and Cross Creek/MK Rawlings State Park. The county roads (CR325 and CR346) rural roadside environment offers refuge for the winter migration of sandhill cranes and viewing areas of bald eagles. The area along the highway offers many recreational opportunities, including bicycling, camping, bird watching, canoeing, hiking and equestrian activities.
The highway enjoys a rich historical legacy and has already been honored as the Bartram Trail and the Chiles Trail, for its role in two of the most famous walks in Florida's history. Experience the history and beauty of country roads, historic towns, open spaces, stately mansions and colorful history of Florida when visiting the Old Florida Heritage Highway.
