Highlight: Babcock Webb -  8A
Road 8A is the most challenging trail in Babcock Webb WMA. Road 8A will cut through a marsh that will be deep, even during Florida's dry season. The marsh is a few hundred yards long and will have a current, so drivers need to be extra careful when attempting to cross. There will be other water crossings on Road 8A with moderate depth during the wet seasons. North of the marsh Road 8A has a pond area that has been cleared out by/for roaming cattle in Babcock Webb WMA. This is a great area to take a break and enjoy the forest as Road 8A is not well-traveled. Road 8A is a scenic site both north and south of Tucker Grade. Road 8A is a great trail for advanced travelers looking to try a challenge and those looking to enjoy being surrounded by Florida's rich green vegetation! Fred C. Babcock/Cecil M.
