Overview

This is a great place to go for a long off-road spin when other local trails are flooded and under water. The Babcock/Webb Management Area consists of built-up and elevated dirt tram roads traversing a wide variety of Florida lands including upland pine flatwoods, swamps, and even includes a few water crossings. Expect to see wildlife on this ride from grazing cattle to gators.

Need to Know

Avoid deer hunting season, this land is very popular for hunting.

Description

From the parking area, head east down Tucker Grade; you'll be starting off for about a 1/4 mile on pavement then switching to graded doubletrack and dirt roads. You'll cross Oil Well Grade and continue straight until you hit Seaboard Grade at approximately 3.2 miles and turn left.

Continue until mile 5.2, where you'll intersect with Tram Grade. Take a left, for what seems like a never ending road, for the next 10 miles. At mile 15.5, you'll take a right. Continue approximately two miles to where the trail intersects back with Tucker Grade for the return home.

On Tucker Grade, you'll encounter three water crossings, usually only a couple inches deep and about 50 feet across. Expect the ride to last between 2.5 to 3 hours, round-trip. There are many other options you can put together using the multitude of dirt roads, but be sure to pack plenty of water and a tube.

Cecil Webb is working land, so there are cows, no worries they run when they see the bikes coming.

One of the three water spillways. This is the area you are most likely to spot an alligator.

There are three water spillways. This is the smallest of the three.

Lots of water beside the dirt roads, so look out for the alligators. These roads are well maintained. No flooding here.

Lots of wildlife can be seen on these dirt roads. Sometimes you may feel as though you're going to get run over by a deer.
