Ocala National Forest: Ocala North Trail Professional Review and Guide

"The 389,000-acre Ocala National Forest was the first designated national forest east of the Mississippi River. The Big Scrub, as it is affectionately known, is the world’s largest stand of sand pine scrub forest.

It also contains one of the most scenic extensions of the Florida National Scenic Trail, a 75-mile leg that’s considered the “crown jewel” of the system. Divided into two main sections, north and south, the trail passes through rolling hills and longleaf pine forests, skirts as many as sixty ponds, and ventures into numerous cypress and gum swamps."
