Highlights

Highlight: Ocala - NE 191st Lane and NF 66
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! NE 191st Lane and FR66 travels east and west through Ocala National Forest. The trail has a variety of conditions that should pose no issues for any stock SUV or truck, however, cars should be careful. Once the trail turns into FR66 drivers can expect a scenic route that goes past Lake Delancy and both its camps. Don't let the wide, well-maintained dirt road fool you as eventually the trail becomes very narrow from vegetation, sandy, and has water/mud crossings.

FR66 is mainly a scenic road and access to the campsites. Great place for loading/unloading ATVs and UTVs. The east side of FR66 is very narrow and drivers can expect pinstripping from trees and bushes.
