Ocala Centennial OHV Trail System

Area Status: Open

The Ocala Centennial OHV Trail, named so because of its dedication in 2008, our centennial year - is a loop trail system currently 47 miles in length, offers a unique opportunity to view the Big Scrub ecosystem in the heart of the Ancient Island Scrub. This globally imperiled ecosystem is the largest contiguous sand pine scrub in the world.

Riders may park at one of the OHV parking corrals to enjoy day use activities. Parking corrals are located at Blue Sink (area is unavailable) and Big Scrub Campground. Activities at Blue Sink and Farles Prairie include fishing, wading, picnicking and wildlife viewing.

Unlicensed vehicles less than 65 inches are allowed on the Ocala Centennial OHV Trail system. A 20-mph speed limit is enforced on this trail.
