Highlights

Highlight: Citrus - Trail 11
Trail 11 is one of the longest trails in the Citrus Wildlife Management Area. The trail is great for any novice and moderately experienced off-roader looking for more experience! Drivers will travel through bright white sugar-sand, drive through off-camber areas carved into the forest bed, climb severely eroded ledges, and roll tires through some mud. Trail 11 has scenic areas and elevation changes the more explorers move north through the forest. Trail 11 is one of the best trails in Citrus WMA because it has something for everyone! 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.
