Highlight: Osceola - FR272
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 272 is a trail that will take explorers through the center of Osceola National Forest. While on FR272 drivers can expect typical swamp conditions as the trail goes directly through it! During the dry season, the trail is more relaxed with a scenic route. However, during wet seasons drivers can expect a completely different experience as the trail will be underwater in many areas!
