Trail Information


Trail 17 is the fastest trail in Citrus WMA! The trail​ is wide and mostly bright-white Florida sugar sand with hill climbs. During Florida's wet seasons there will be spots underwater​ so slow down for those. Trail 17 also takes drivers deep into northern Citrus where vehicle speeds slow down for mild climbs over rain-eroded ledges and mild off-camber 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.

WP7 to Lecanto is seasonally/temporarily closed. It looks like there are plenty of entrances from Lecanto to Citrus WMA on the North side; however, only Trail 13 is actually open. Other entrances are either gated or have signs prohibiting vehicle traffic. Since this trail doesn't really lead anywhere, I can't really recommend it. Pinstriping is the only issue.

Trail 17 is fun change of pace in Citrus WMA. The trail starts off fast and later slows down for some mild climbing. Random mudholes also make a nice changeup!
