The ATV guided tour in the Ocala National Forest is a unique activity for the Florida traveler. All skill levels will enjoy this activity as pre-riding instructions are given to everyone and automatic ATVs are used. You will drive and manuever the ATV through different Florida terrains while viewing our state the way the natives must have seen it.
You will meet the ATV crew at the trailhead where you will sign waivers, choose helmets, gloves, googles, water and snacks. Next you will be instructed how to use the vehicle and engage in an individual practice session. Then it is off to the miles of trails. You have a couple breaks on the tour with a bathroom break in the campground, which is half way through the adventure. You can bring a camera and take pictures to remember your day in the woods or rent a GoPro Video camera with SD card to remember your day forever. If you are lucky you will see Fla. wildlife-deer, bear etc...

I recently went on the 41 mile tour in the Ocala forest with the most friendly guide, Peter. I was a first time driver and I had no problem driving the ATV and enjoyed the new experience. I wish I had a place to ride around my house as pretty as the forest. We went to the Rodman Damn and had lunch, a very nice water sight. I had a blast. ... more

I went out with the tour and had a great time. We had serveral people in the group and some not experienced at riding, but after a short instruction we were off with the new automatic ATVs. We saw what Fla. looked like back in the day. The trails are great and the guide very informative and made our tour one we won't forget. ... more
