Highlight: Tiger Bay State Forest - Bennett Field Road
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. Bennett Field Road is a short trail located in central Tiger Bay State Forest. The trail is just north of Bennett Field Campground and cuts through the forest on a gravel two-track trail. Once east of Bennett Field Campground the trail changes from gravel to compact dirt. This area of compact dirt will mildly flex vehicle suspension components due to random potholes over a foot deep. The trail otherwise is calm enough to hear the wind rustling through the trees and open areas cleared out from logging. Bennett Field Road is for explorers looking for an easy trail to escape the concrete jungle cities.
