TREAD LIGHTLY! AND HUMMER HELP OPEN TRAIL SYSTEM IN OCALA NATIONAL FORESTDespite high temperatures, thunderstorms, and hoards of bugs, nearly 70 volunteers helped sign a new designated route in Florida last weekend as part of a new initiative from the nonprofit Tread Lightly! called HUMMER’s Recreation Rescue.
Thanks to funding from HUMMER and the help from volunteers, the Ocala National Forest will be able to properly sign the area, install educational kiosks, and print new maps. This newly designated 81-mile route is called “Four Wheel Drive Way.”
The project kicked-off with a volunteer workday on Saturday, June 21. Twice as many people arrived to volunteer than expected, and the volunteers installed all needed signs on 54 of the 81 miles of trail.
