Trail Information


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! FR22 cuts east and west through Ocala National Forest. The east side of FR22 cuts through the forest where drivers will have fun climbing sandy hills and enjoying the view! FR22 also has its low points in the forest where mud and water live. FR22 is also one of the main roads to the Naval Bombing Range and is about as close as any civilian can legally get to watch living bombing drills!

Part of it is great, part of it is a bit boring. The impact range is as nice point of interest, but don't expect activity there all the time. Pinstriping and a bit of sand are the only concerns.

FR22 is a fun trail, at least on the east side in the forest. Towards the middle and west side of FR22 it becomes dull. However, it was cool watching military jets practice bombing and shooting the impact range!
