The 360,000-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, what the Florida Trail Association calls the “crown jewel” of the 1,300-mile system.
