Overview

Ocala National Forest is one of three National Forests in Florida. Spanning 385,000 acres, Ocala is the second largest National Forest in Florida. Exploring Ocala National Forest can be done in many ways such as hiking, boating, horseback, OHV, ATV, and street-legal vehicles. Ocala National Forest is great for anyone looking to hunt, camp, watch wildlife, visit a shooting range, or even see the Naval Bombing Range! National Forest Road 74 has split personalities. At first, the trail starts simple but as drivers press eastward the trail becomes more difficult. FR74 enters a swamp where black mud and water crossings are plentiful. Drivers who continue to press through the swamp will be greeted with a very narrow path where plants compete with each other to scratch paint off vehicles. FR74 is a fun trail for all who attempt pushing through the swamp, just remember the recovery equipment!
