Trail Information


Richloam Wildlife Management Area spans 58,000 acres, crossing into Hernando, Pasco, Sumter, and Lake counties. Richloam is located in a swamp and is full of outdoor activities such as hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, and horseback riding! Swamps offer wildlife plenty of food and water to survive so visitors can expect to see various animals from deer, hogs, gators, birds, and plenty of insects. North Grade Road is one of the four main roads in Richloam WMA. The trail will take you into the forest where you can stay on well-maintained limestone roads or choose many dirt trails that go off-road into Richloam. North Grade Road is regularly maintained allowing cars to access one of three campsites located on this trail. The north side of Richloam WMA is drier than the center or south side. North Grade Road also has a bridge over Little Withlacoochee River where you'll see gators and turtles sunning themselves and lots of fish. While driving around Richloam you'll encounter many wild pigs, deer, and various birds of prey. The tall trees and lush green vegetation will surround you every step of the way. Certainly, a fun area to explore!

North Grade Road is your typical gravel/limestone road found throughout Florida. The road is highly maintained so cars can access it as well, which means a bland trail for anyone looking to off-road. However there are many small trails off North Grade that can be interesting if you enjoy water and mud or looking to camp at any of the three sites.
