Highlights

Highlight: Ocala - NF 19-31.5
Ocala National Forest is one of three National Forests in Florida. Spanning 385,000 acres, Ocala is the second largest National Forest in Florida. Exploring Ocala National Forest can be done in many ways such as hiking, boating, horseback, OHV, ATV, and street-legal vehicles. Ocala National Forest is great for anyone looking to hunt, camp, watch wildlife, visit a shooting range, or even see the Naval Bombing Range! National Forest Road 19-31.5 is located about in the middle of Ocala National Forest. The trail follows along powerlines that span the entire width of the forest. FR19-31.5 is a great trail for anyone looking for a scenic trail as there are multiple hills that allow some nice views! Due to Florida's sugar sand, drivers can expect to keep their speed/momentum up to climb hills. Driving between power-line poles is always fun!

1. Trailhead off FL-19 (0 mi)
