Richloam WMA

Richloam WMA is one of seven large tracts of land that make up the Withlacoochee State Forest. The Richloam Tract, consisting of more than 58,000 acres, is located in Hernando, Pasco, Sumter, and Lake counties. Pine flatwoods with scattered oak hammocks, bottomland hardwoods, and cypress swamp are the main natural communities on this area. Hunting, fishing, wildlife viewing, camping, horseback riding, hiking, and bicycling are popular recreational activities on Richloam. There are eight miles of shared trails for horseback riding, bicycling, and hiking, as well as three loop hiking trails ranging in length from 9.4 to 13.6 miles. Children under the age of 16 are required to wear a helmet when horseback riding on public lands. For more detailed information go to Nicole’s Law PDF. All horseback riders must have proof of current negative Coggins Test results for their horses when on state lands. The Little Withlacoochee River flows through the northwestern half of the wildlife management area. Wild turkey, white-tailed deer, gopher tortoise, wild hogs, gray squirrel, and non-venomous water snakes are common. The area is part of the Great Florida Birding Trail. You may see little blue, great blue, and tricolored herons, along with sandhill cranes, wood storks, limpkins, and a variety of songbirds.
