[ft-l] Local Hiking Info
This is good information, Sandy. We held a Camporee at Withlacoochee
River Park. It is a very nice park.
My biggest concern with the Citrus Trails (from what I have been told)
is that they don't have much in the way of water sources. If I can get
some SAG wagon drops, we should be OK, though.
Thank you again for your prompt response.

Since you're in Dade City, you might want to consider the loops at
and Croom tracts of Withlacoochee State Forest, or one of the shorter
at the Citrus Tract. All offer backpacking campsites. Green Swamp is
option. All of the areas allow hunting, so check the
www.floridaconservation.org website for hunt dates so you can schedule
For your younger guys, take a look at Withlacoochee River Park. You can
up a base camp either at one of the backpacking campsites or at the
primitive campsite (an easy walk from a car, about 1/3 mile) and then do
number of different day hikes out of your base camp.
