Highlights

Highlight: Osceola - FR216
Osceola National Forest is one of three National Forests in Florida. Spanning 266,000 acres Osceola is the smallest of Florida's National Forests. Exploring Osceola National Forest can be done in many ways such as hiking, ATVs, horseback, and street-legal vehicles. Ocala National Forest is great for anyone looking to hunt, camp, watch wildlife, or visit the Lewis D. Whitaker shooting range! National Forest Road 216 travels east and west through Osceola National Forest. The trail will surround explorers with tall trees and swampland. Areas of FR216 will be cleared out from loggers, so there are many side-roads that ATVs, dirtbikes, and UTVs will like to check out.
