Highlight: Three Lakes - Trail 8 and 9
Roads 8 and 9 are located in Three Lakes Wildlife Management Area which consists of almost 55,000 acres in Osceola County.

Road 8 and 9 will bring visitors through the wet prairie of Three Lakes. Drivers will be surrounded by lush green vegetation, water, and wide-open​ land that seems to touch the sky. Road 8 and 9 travel very close to Lake Marian, the second largest of the three lakes.
