Lake Talquin State Forest
Lake Talquin State Forest is composed of nine main tracts
and many smaller tracts of land. The majority
of these tracts adjoin the Ochlockonee River and Lake
Talquin, the body of water that gives the forest its name.
Since 1977, Lake Talquin State Forest has been managed
by the Division of Forestry using the multiple-use concept,
which balances environmental, recreational and resource
use needs. Emphasis is given to reforestation, ecosystem
restoration, and outdoor recreation.
Lake Talquin State Forest is located just west of Tallahassee
in western Leon County and southern Gadsden County in
the panhandle of Florida.
Horseback riding is permitted on open roads
on Lake Talquin State Forest and the Fort Braden Tract
contains a 12 mile designated equestrian trail. Horseback
riding is not permitted on designated hiking and biking
trails or on the Bear Creek Tract. Proof of a current
negative Coggins test is required for all horses.
Primitive Camping. State Forest Use Permit Required
