I was the last week end and I think is so beautiful and good place for make off road driving. I was scared of take the ways off road because I was alone with my two guys and now with the rains it’s a lot of mud and pretty flooded. I’m thinking in go again for know better the place when find some friends with 4x4.

Nice trail, well groom ask for a map in the welcome entrance to see all the off road trails. Number 10 was close when we went for Memorial Weekend.
The majority of the trails are easy to moderate. I recommend to go with a buddy some of the puddles can be kind of deep.

Hiked A tract and enjoyed the hilly terrain.
We saw a large rattle snake lying across the trail but it had no interest in us and quickly left. I saw the hikers' peace sign made of pinecones; fellow hikers and I added a pinecone of our own. I would like to go back and hike the other trails at Croom.

Great trail with well marked trails. Did the B loop which is about 9 miles starting at the Tucker Hill Trailhead. $2 to access park. I would rate this easy to moderate. The trail has a few roots and some dampness here and there but overall a pretty easy hike with some elevation (150 ft.) which is a lot for Florida. Very little traffic and the ability to customize your hike as you go. Enjoy!

great little hike, make sure to bring big repellent. and lots of water

We took the horses and had a great time! Park the trailers in the grass near the information sign. The road splits there - trails to the right were muddy and not great, but trails to the left were perfect! They connect up to a power line road, plenty of room and safe, solid trails to even do some trot/canter sets to get the horses in shape. It was nice and dry and free of mud. Will definitely be going back. Would be great to take the dogs too!

This was my first off road experience. We had a great time. If this was easy though I can’t imagine difficult.

This is my favorite place to hike in Florida. There are 3 trails here, and you can extend the hike amongst the 3 to 15 or 24 miles.

The right or "A" trail is the easiest. It is about 7 miles.

The "B" trail is closer to 8, and "C" is about 9.

I find the C the most challenging, but I am disappointed in the last mile or so. It seems to go on forever with no really good views or such.

I have never seen any ticks nor horses on this trail.
Bikers and Hikers have their own separate trails with the exception of a few intersections here and there.

Around early April each year, there is an Extended Marathon trail run. I think it is 75 miles? You can still hike when that is going on. Typically, this is the only time you run across more than 1 or two other folks the whole hike.

Love this place! Trail 6 is my personal favorite! Camping at the campground is accessible and clean. Also close to trails and main grade. It can get swampy off the main grade... just know your vehicles’ limits or you’ll be stuck like Chuck!

We loved it! It’s rated as an “easy” trail but I’m a little afraid of heights and some of the obstacles had me holding on for dear life. So much fun, definitely recommend and would do again.

Mostly 2x4 trails with places you can go and use 4x4. I went in a rubicon Jk with another Jk. Never got stuck but definitely left muddy. I went after it rained in January. On the map it shows a straight line but plenty of trails to keep you company.

Very nice, we had so much fun!! The place is beautiful. Was our first time with the Jeep . They didn’t had a map, we were lost a little, but others Jeep Drivers was there to help. Will definitely come back again, more prepared.

It was our first real "off road" experience and we had a great time. We went on a Saturday and mostly all alone on the trail. The few others there were friendly. The trail offered many fun ups and downs that were plenty challenging enough for us beginners. There was one hill that was too much for us this time, but we will want to go down it on another trip. I highly recommend this place -- very fun.

Saw a deer and armadillo. Tons of butterflies. Trail clear post Irma. The pine cones in one species are huge. Lots of up and down!! And the pines burnt as many were are beautiful. The yellow A trail loop
Turns into orange Florida trial ? Not sure. So at 3 miles or so I turned back. Never second guess that decision. Glad I did. Did 6+ miles and the trail looks different on the way back. I ran out of water about three fourths of a Mile From trailhead. Knowing I had only a Ways to go was comforting. Never again !

I live in the Pacific Northwest now, but lived in Tampa for 31. I hiked this trail a few years back and found it hot, bug infested, sandy, monotonous and shabby. It's nothing but palmetto and scrawny little pine trees. I guess it's okay simply because it's about as good as it gets in Florida.

I went out last Saturday to the Withlacochee state forest, Crum tract. After a little while I found a great clay pit. Awesome time.

Went on a run there with 2 friends. The trail/ fire road could be marked a bit better. Pretty area to run. Bring bug spray. I recommend taking a picture of the map before you go out so you can hopefully see where you turn etc.

Like much of the trails in this area, this trail is much like a dirt road. Long grass makes for lots of ticks. Make sure you have applied a product with at least 20-40% deet. Had at least 15-20 ticks throughout a 9.5 mile out and back hike from Withlacoochee trail at SR 50 over to Silver Lake. Wintertime I'm sure would much better in regards to this. Beautiful trail follows the river under a mostly thick canopy. Trail is well-marked and easy to follow.

Took my wife and I here over the weekend with a handful of buddies and our Jeeps (Memorial Day 2017). Had a great time all in all, nicely divided trails for 4x4's, and motocross to ride on the same property. Lots of edge of your seat moments to be had, wether it be you doing the driving, or sitting on ground level watching your buddy pull off a really steep hill climb. Or, hell, even just hanging out near the front watching the motocross riders go nuts on the jumps.

But, if you do go and you're new to off roading, I highly recommend that you bring motion sickness meds. My wife said they were her saving grace while we were out there. Other than that, bring something to eat, a cooler with something to drink, and enjoy a lunch under the trees on the trails.

**And please, don't forget to clean up after yourselves. Don't ruin nature for the rest of us.**
