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. It 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. Wildlife Drive is a trail with a split personality in Tiger Bay State Forest. There is a gate located in the middle of Wildlife Drive that splits the trail into the east and west sides. The east side of the trail is a very easy and painless drive on gravel with green vegetation surrounding visitors. The west side of Wildlife Drive is also surrounded by green vegetation, however, the trail is less maintained dirt with potholes and shallow water crossings.

Wildlife Drive is super easy on the east side of the gate. Having to go around the gate by accessing the west side of Tiger Bay State Forest is a pain for a short drive on loose dirt and mud puddles. Wildlife Drive is not a road I'd specifically want to travel on unless the gate is open and I want to move between the east and west side.
