Wakulla State Forest

The Wakulla State Forest is beautifully varied due to the unique and various natural community types perfect for exploration with superb views of the diverse ecosystems. Wildlife species in the area include white-tailed deer, feral hog, turkey, bobcat, gopher tortoise and a variety of resident and migratory birds. This recreation area features several different multi-use and hiking-only trails with one designated Trailwalker and one Trailtrotter trail. The Nemours hiking-only trail loop is a 1.75 mile trail that follows old jeep trail paths through mixed pine/hardwood forest and a hardwood/cypress slough. The Double Springs Trail loop is an amazing multi-use 4.5 mile trail that features low water crossings, inclines and winding trails. The Petrik Spur Trail is a 1.0 mile trail off of the Double Springs Trail. There are also over 15 miles of service roads closed to vehicle traffic, accessible to adventurous hikers and riders who like to explore off the marked trails.

The Trailhead is located along SR 267 with a picnic pavilion and parking that can accommodate horse trailers. Smaller parking areas are located along Rosa Shingles Road and off Cooperwood Road at the northeast boundary. Wakulla State Forest is part of the Big Bend Scenic Byway.
