Highlights

Highlight: Richloam - Loopy Road
Richloam Wildlife Management Area spans 58,000 acres, crossing into Hernando, Pasco, Sumter, and Lake counties. Richloam is located in a swamp and is full of outdoor activities such as hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, and horseback riding! Swamps offer wildlife plenty of food and water for wildlife so visitors can expect to see various animals from deer, hogs, gators, birds, and plenty of insects. Loopy Road is a short but fun trail located in northwest Richloam Wildlife Management Area. The trail has everything visitors can expect of a trail located in the swap; wet and plenty of vegetation. Loopy Road is one of Richloam's less-traveled roads and is really in the middle of nowhere, which allows visitors to take in the quiet forest sounds and clean air!
