Highlight: South Grade
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. South Grade is a really fun road if you enjoy mud and water! It runs through portions of the Richloam WMA and goes deep into woods and swampland. It is one of four main roads in the area but is much less traveled than the others. It is common to find other vehicles stuck on/around South Grade Road and helping others in need will surely be a memorable event!
