Key Central Forest
Similar to 360 Trails, this property is managed by Key Pen Parks through a 50-year lease from the Department of Natural Resources. The property consists of 480 acres of forested land and Vaughn Creek, a salmon habitat.
The only way to access this property is from Wright Bliss Road. Visitors may feel free to park at the gate just off the road and walk in. The gate is locked to prevent garbage dumping and vandalism, but the public is welcome to use this wonderful space during daylight hours. If you are planning to bring your horse for a ride in the trails, you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org for the lock code to access parking for horse trailers only.
There are many trails in Key Central Forest that have been recently completed, with two culvert bridges that helped extend the system. Some areas of the trails are thinner than others, so watch out for any pesky plants reaching for your legs! Sturdy shoes with good ankle support are encouraged.
Note of interest: the distance from the roadside gate to the first “Y” is approximately one-half mile.
