The Mallory Swamp tract is located in southeastern Lafayette County.
Access to the Mallory Swamp tract from Mayo:

Mallory Swamp is a combination of basin swamp, mixed shrub swamp, and mesic flat woods. Due to a large wildfire in 2001, much of Mallory Swamp has unique open vistas of natural grassland with scattered pine and cypress trees. The tract is undergoing a hydrologic and natural communities restoration.
Wildlife species include American alligator, white ibis, great egret, wood stork, black bear, wild hog, deer, and turkey.
The Mallory Swamp tract is a primitive recreation site. Allowable uses are wildlife viewing, fishing, hunting, bicycling, hiking, and horseback riding on administrative roads.
There is a designated ATV trail that is open from late April to late September. See the conditions of use and safety guidelines (PDF, 14.6KB). For more information, contact the District office at:
