Highlights

Highlight: Osceola - FR237
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 237 has multiple personalities. At first, FR237 starts on an easy maintained dirt road, but explorers quickly find out the trail is going to change after crossing a bridge that's underwater. FR237 cuts through forest and swamp where drivers can expect long and deep water crossings. Once out of the swamp drivers will be back in a scenic forest only shortly to find yet more water crossings! FR237 is a fun trail as long as explorers are experienced and have the proper recovery equipment.
