• Weekiwachee Preserve

    This 11,206-acre preserve has numerous walking trails within a mosaic of wildlife habitats. On the second and fourth Saturdays of every month, visitors may drive in through the Osowaw Boulevard gate and park at the end of the paved 1.3-mile road.

    Cyclists can cruise 5.5 miles of paved and hard-packed bike trails in an 11,000 acre designated black bear habitat. Shy and elusive, the bears pose no threat to people, spending most of their time deep in the forest. Enjoy scenery around several lakes and great birdwatching.

    Amenities: Bicycling, Hiking, Bird Watching, Wildlife Viewing, Fishing, Boating, Paddling, Hunting, Picnicking
