We wanted a good hike through the Withlacoochee State Forest (note the correct spelling), but we spent quite a while finding it. There are patches of state forest scattered over several counties, and we wasted an hour driving to the ranger station north of Brooksfield.

We rented bikes to travel the trail around a lovely lake. Bike paths are well maintained and smooth. The scenery is fantastic - peaceful and refreshing. A great time

There are two Withlacoochee rivers, one way up north. this one is in counties surrounding Crystal River. There are many stretches that are great paddling. Beautiful water fowl, etc.

This was fun as a group to explore some caves a hike around for a while. Not something I would do again soon. I would rather be on the water in this area, so much more to do.

46 miles of trails that can promise you a thrill. Travel through many environments and be prepared for elevation changes! This is not "flat Florida" Make sure you carry water as these trails are dry. Call Dept of forestry to obtain permit prior to hiking as portions open to hunters in season - . 3 local campgrounds and a colony... More

We walked along the trails, which were kept very clean and clear. The shade from the trees made walking very enjoyable.

The caves were difficult to find, I suggest you google map (peace cave) before going...it was pretty fantastic to be near caves that are wild and unkept. We had... More

Great trails for walking. We also drove down one of the logging trails, but we did have a Jeep. It was sandy.
