Highlights

Highlight: Ocala - Forest Road 77
Forest Road 77 is located on the very east side of Ocala Nationa Forest. The trail winds through tight vegetation and edges near a creek off St. Johns River. Explorers will push through plants attempting to reclaim the trail while being surrounded by birds, deer, turkeys, and alligators sunbathing! Ocala National Forest is one of three National Forests in Florida. Spanning 385,000 acres, Ocala is the second largest National Forest in Florida. Exploring Ocala National Forest can be done in many ways, such as hiking, boating, horseback, OHV, ATV, and street-legal vehicles. Ocala National Forest is great for anyone looking to hunt, camp, watch wildlife, visit a shooting range, or even see the Naval Bombing Range!
