New Trailhead Opens In Ocala National Forest
May 23, 2014
Parking, Facilities Linked To Centennial Trail
The Centennial Off-Highway Vehicle Trailhead in the Ocala National Forest officially opened April 12.
The new facility is a dedicated trailhead for off-highway vehicles in the Ocala National Forest and is located near Silver Springs, Fla., on Forest Road 13.
Forest Service engineers designed the recreation area to include spacious parking for visitors with trailers to offload motorcycles.
The Ocala National Forest has about 215 miles of trails for motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles and other off-highway vehicles.
“Working with our state partners, we were able to create a new trailhead, easily accessible by the public,” says District Ranger Mike Herrin. “This new facility will provide ample parking and accommodate trailers for offloading off-highway vehicles with plenty of space to maneuver.”
