Highlight: Goethe - Hospital Road
Goethe State Forest is located in central Florida and spans almost 54,000 acres. Exploring Goethe State Forest can be done in many ways, such as hiking, bicycling, horseback, and street-legal vehicles. Goethe State Forest is great for anyone looking to hunt, fish, camp, and watch wildlife. Hospital Road is located in the very northern area of Goethe State Forest. The trail takes visitors through various scenery from dense, almost claustrophobic vegetation, to cleared-out areas surrounded by trees with charred bark from prescribed burns. Hospital Road offers a relaxing route through the forest without having to worry about trail rash or getting stuck in the mud.
