This area is Open
 

With twisting, winding narrow trails through longleaf pine and scrub forest, the Motorcycle Loop is a physical challenge and open to motorcycles only.

Access this 14-mile system of stacked loops from the Motorcycle Loop Trailhead along FR 66 west of Lake Delancy, or from a number of connecting trails - the Hog Valley Trail, Tobacco Patch Trail, Longleaf Pine Trail and Pipeline Trail.

The Ocala North OHV Trail System offers 125 miles of trail which includes a 14-mile motorcycle-only trail; 35 miles of trail usable by motorcycles, all terrain vehicles (ATVs), and utility vehicles (UTVs) less than 50 inches wide; and 76 miles classified as "mixed use," which means OHVs share the trail with licensed vehicles.
