Alt Names

Ocala National Forest, Lake George Ranger District, Tobacco Patch Trail, Hog Valley Trail, Longleaf Trail, Pipeline Trail, Delancy Loops, Rodman Trailhead, Salt Springs OHV Connector Trail, Delancy West Campground

Last Known StatusOpen

This part of the Ocala National Forest offers six trail loops that interconnect and multiple staging areas. The trails are mostly sandy and flat but do have some nice twisty sections and a few deep berms.

Most of the trails are wide enough for ATVs but the Longleaf Trail is open to vehicles up to 65 inches wide and can be accessed at either the Rodman Trailhead or Delancy West Trailhead. For those looking for pure single track park at the Motorcycle Loop Trailhead.

The trailheads are open for day use only but camping is permitted at Delancy West Campground, which has 30 sites and direct trail access. There are no hookups but each site comes with a picnic table, BBQ grill, fire ring and lantern holder. Campsites are on a first come, first serve basis.

There is no fee charged to park at any of the staging areas except at Delancy West Campground, which is $6 per vehicle for day use. A permit is required to ride here which can be obtained at any one of the staging areas and at the campground.

Other nearby attractions include the Salt Springs Recreation Area which offers full RV hookups along with a warm shallow freshwater spring that averages 72 degrees throughout the year.

The motocross play track has no elevation changes or jumps but is very twisty with some nice berms. The track might be more appealing to the ATV riders due to the deep sand.
