Highlights

Highlight: Goethe - North Prong 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. North Prong Road is located on the southern side of Goethe State Forest. What the trail lacks in elevation changes, it makes up for it with lots of corners as drivers wind through the forest. The corners will make blind spots at times so be sure to watch for any animals bolting across the road at the last second! At the end of North Prong Road is a Florida Forest Service Fire Station with the Lebanon Lookout Tower.
