The Citrus Tract, located southwest of Inverness, comprises more than 40,000 acres and contains three separate recreation areas. Approximately 20 trails wind over 45 miles that are shared with bicyclists and horseback riders. The tract accommodates either day-hikes or overnight backpacking excursions.
The refuge is comprised of more than 35,000 pristine acres that include the Chassahowitzka and Homosassa River estuaries. It is a hiker’s dream-come-true with the possibility of coming across Florida black bear and the elusive, endangered whooping crane. There are marked trails, Indigo Road and 3 Bridge Road, and for the avid backpacker there are miles of hardwood, scrub and swamp areas to be explored at your leisure.
Whatever your hiking style — Citrus and Hernando has the trail for you!
