I've been through this forest a thousand times going to the beach and never knew it was here. Recently I rescued a new puppy who loves to hike so I've been scouting parks. Tiger Bay sounded familiar when I looked it up and I felt foolish when I realized where it is. Spent the day hiking here in parts of... More

Most local residents are completely unaware that they have thousands of acres of publicly accessible wilderness at their back door. This is one of my favorite places to go when I want to get away from everything. There's a nice recreation area on Indian Lake ($2 self-pay fee), with picnic tables, a dock and a hiking trail that is on... More

Just off the highway this is a lovely peaceful green space. There is 1.75 mile well signposted nature trail which took less than 1 hour to walk round. There is a lake on which you can fish. It is a nice place to while away the time

Went to Tiger Bay State Forest to get away from the tourist atmosphere of Daytona Beach. Unfortunately, not much visitor info about the forest. I did take the only nature walk available while my wife stayed near Indian Lake. The trail was easy but not very interesting. The written guide pointed out a few plants but not much else. There...

We did the two mile loop trail and saw a rabbit, turkey and bunch of very little babies, possible a bobcat (or?) jump across our path about 3-4 ' in the air and birds. There were lots of wildflowers and cactus in bloom, dragonflies everywhere... The trail is very scenic and shady in many parts. We found the old homestead... More

Set right off the International Speedway road that runs from Daytona Beach to Deland, this is a nicely preserved forest. There are a few trails for hiking or walking but mostly just trees. With meager attention by the rangers to mapping the trails or providing information about the Forest itself, this is only an above average place to visit.

This big forest had little in the way of things to see. We visited to go for an off-road run and found some trails but mostly just dirt roads. Would have liked a better trail map on the website (or even at the entrance). Still we had a nice time for a 1 hour run.
