Fun trail if you are wanting to just enjoy the ride. Gators are plenty so keep ‘em eye out.

Nice fun day trip. Wife and I will go out on the mornings for a nice off road drive. Gators are pretty common if you like seeing them.

Easy trail. Well maintained and easy to navigate. No concerns whatsoever. Having said this, also not that interesting,

Most trails were open while others are marked for Forestry dept use only, although poorly marked. You can have fun on some of the driveable trails as there are some thick muddy areas. Not a real technical trail but fun nonetheless.

Lacoochee Claysink Road is interesting how it changes scenery; from forest to fields, to structures and animals. It however does not offer and challenges for 4WD vehicles, but there are many trails off Lacoochee Claysink that need exploring.
