Highlight: Citrus - Trail 8
Trail 8 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 8 is probably the most difficult trail in Citrus WMA! Many offroaders have become stuck on Trail 8 due to the deep ruts and slippery mud located towards the beginning of the trail. Once past the quicksand Trail 8 calms down but drivers will need to watch mud holes and climb over ledges where Florida's torrential downpours have washed away the trail!
