Trail Information


Tiger Bay State Forest is located in east-central Florida and spans about 30,000 acres. Tiger Bay State Forest got its name because of the large wetland that supplies Daytona Beach, DeLand, and other local municipals with water. Tiger Bay State Forest is home to two natural lakes named Indian Lake and Scoggin Lake, and multiple other natural and manmade ponds. These bodies of water bring all types of wildlife; fish, gators, bears, deer, panthers, birds, and insects to the area. Tiger Bay State Forest allows visitors to take in the sights, smells, and sounds of nature by camping, hiking, biking, horseback riding, picnicking, boating, and hunting. Bear Island Road is the longest trail in western Tiger Bay State Forest. The trail takes visitors through the forest on a non-drama cruise for those looking to enjoy the forest. Bear Island Road is one of the main trails in western Tiger Bay State Forest, so expect some traffic.

Bear Island Road is a basic Florida trail; lots of green plants and smooth ride. The trail is a relaxing ride but keep your eyes open for animals as western Tiger Bay is not as busy as the eastern half.
