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! National Forest Road 50 is a great scenic trail that runs the entire length east and west through Ocala National Forest. FR50 also connects to Hopkins Prairie Campground and Lake George hiking trail. FR50 will have a few high spots overlooking the forest. Anyone looking to park and unload ORV will also appreciate the Hopkins ORV right next to Hopkins Prairie lake!

Very easy trail with many side trails. Some sandy areas to avoid … it is the dry season so no concerns with mud.

Trail is nice and easy. Seems to be well maintained and has many side trails you can take. I managed to take one side trail that had many water pits. I was visiting from California and would love to go back and hit some of the trails with my own vehicle. Just happened to rent a Gladiator and took a scenic route.

Nice dirt road to get you into the Forrest area. Nothing technical or challenging.

FR50 is a calm scenic ride through Ocala National Forest. The OHV loading area is a great place for a break!
