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. Dark Entry Road must have been redesigned in the past as the trail is not dark, nor does it have an entrance to Tiger Bay State Forest. Instead, the trail moves through a forest with contrasting colors: bright green vegetation and black/brown vegetation from a controlled burn. Dark Entry Road is a middle-of-nowhere trail that has no connections so traffic is very low. Dark Entry Road is a great place to have a relaxing picnic while taking in the sights, sounds, and fresh air of the forest.

Dark Entry Road is a very easy trail. There are only a few spots with black mud and water but not enough to need 4WD if in a truck/SUV. The recent burn on towards the western end of the trail is a cool sight as across the road is bright green plants.
