Highlight: Citrus - Trail 5
Trail 5 is located in the ​Citrus Wildlife Management Area and consists of almost 50,000 acres. Spanning both Citrus and Hernando counties Citrus WMA provides plenty of four-wheeling, hiking, and horse trails along with multiple camping sites. Trail 5 will provide drivers a fun variety of sandy hill climbs, mud, and mild climbs over eroded clay. Vegetation will be invading the trail and may leave pinstriping if drivers are not paying attention! Trail 5 will take drivers down into a ravine where Florida panthers have been spotted! Look for their paw-prints on the sandy areas of the trail!
