Trail Information


Caves in a peaceful and serene forest and one of the best off-road trails in the entire Citrus WMA - what more can you want from Trail 15? The trail offers driving on dirt and sand, elevation changes, mild off-camber, and shallow water/mud crossings. The drive will provide a variety of visual experiences in colors with bright white sand, orange clay, vibrant green foliage, and on dry days bright blue skies! At the beginning of the trail is a short hiking trail to both Dames Cave and Peace Caves, one of Citrus WMA's most interesting areas. More cave information can be found at Villages of Citrus Hills. Citrus Wildlife Management Area is a very popular and active Management Area. Citrus WMA is almost 50,000 acres and is part of both Citrus and Hernando counties. Citrus WMA provides plenty of four-wheeling, hiking, biking, and horse riding trails along with multiple camping sites.

Difficulty Accuracy: Easier

Checkpoint 1 and 2 are closed when going the reverse way. There is a fallen tree between checkpoint 7 & 8, but the bypass is clear. Easy trail that can be done in 2wd when dry.

Just rode down trail 15 from trail 8 and at the intersection of trail 20 there were a couple of road closed signs heading south on trail 15 hdg to Dames cave. Please feel free to correct me if I am wrong.

Trail 15 is one of my top 5 trail in Citrus WMA! It has everything you'd want: hill climbs, water, mud, off-camber, and if you enjoy hiking and sight-seeing definitively checkout caves off the trailhead! Every time I visit Citrus I make sure to drive Trail 15. See for more information on the caves.
