To help plan future meets and possible Florida events, I'd like to have your help developing a database of locations. These locations will likely be offroad locations but not limited to 4wds. Other non off road locations I'd like to include will be scenic roadways for cruises, drag strips, and mud bog tracks.

To add off road locations, please include the following info;
Local name,
Location (nearest town, route number or highway to the trail head),
Type of off roading (i.e. mud, sand, trails or a combination of such)
Difficulty (i.e passable to 2wds, passable to only 4wds, requires large tires, etc.)
Legal issues (such as tresspassing, open to the public, requires regestering etc.)
Short summery describing the location.

For scenic roadways please include the following info
Name of the route,
Things to see or visit
Favorite things
If there is a place to visit along the route, (i.e. Disney, Kennedy space center, Pensacola Naval air station) please include the cost of any entry fees (Or passes) and the hrs of operation.

Drag strips and Mud bogs;
Include the name and location
Price of entry fees and hrs of operation.

Thank you
Ed

well, down here we have the immokalee 1/8th mile drag strip. and the illegal one out in lehigh acres.
off road areas i have not determined yet because 1) i dont have 4 wheel drive or big tires or anything like that and 2) because i have been pretty busy doing school work and that sorta crap. i do know where a few trails are though and could be possibly a great place to go if i could only figure out how to get there.
we have beaches here (but that doesnt count cuz we are in FLORIDA)
i dont know of any other attractions really unless you like to see lots of blue hairs drive really slow and stuff.

O.K.
Heres a few offraod places that i know of and have been too.
1: " The Bar Pits ". New Smyrna Beach Fla. Where we went wheeling that day. We never actually went to the mud runs and THE DITCH on the power line road as everyone was read to split by then. Nice place, good trails, deep water, Great Mud runs. Bonfire and camping friendly. Price : Free.
2. The Bandit mud races. Hwy 415 and hwy 44 across the street from the New Smyrna Speedway. Mud Races open to the public every Saturday Night starting at 7:00p.m. Rain or shine. Run what you Brung. Big trucks only, very deep and tough mud pits. Cost is $3.00 per truckload..
3. Scottsmore Trails: South of New smyrna in Oak Hill area. Similar in many aspects to the Bar pits. Not qite as large an area and no pretty lake. moderate to Really tough Trails. Long Deep Mud runs (3). Fire and Camping friendly. Price: Free.
4 The Old Boyscout camp. Debary, Florida.
On the St. Johns river. Lots of wooded trails and some mud a little water but great rope swings and jumping trees into the river. Good swimming area. fire and camping friendly. Price: Free. (note) Haven't been out there in a few years so not sure as to condition of area will attempt to Scout soon.
5. "Sea World" As seen in Chucks Trucks. I4 near Sea World exit. www.chuckstrucks.com. Very tough mud runs and too much for average wheeler. Private area I am told but not hard to get invited cost is Free.
As for the other stuff locally of course is Daytona beach and all the Racing stuff.
That's all I can think of for now but that's pretty good Huh?

well, not to let this topic die, i have found more areas to go offroading at down here. theres a place called the prairie thats not far at all from me, and its, well basically a big open mudpit. the trails to get there arent the largest or most comfy to ride on, but its a pretty cool place. theres a "river" that borders it that might have fish in it.. i am really hoping to host the next meet after the ocala one down here. just a little more bribing and im sure it will happen. there are lots of other trails that i have yet to explore. i will get back to yall with those.

found the place i will take everyone to during the meet. its a big open muddy feild that has been pretty much untouched. theres a few obstacles such as a charred boat and some cement culvurts but other than that its a big open mud pit. tim and i found it while we were scouting for areas. theres a fire pit, and lots of mud. and plenty of parking. i guarantee it will be loads of fun, but be prepared to get muddy!!!

At the request of a couple of the members over at www.floridajeepers.net I have set up an entire Category dedicated to this here.
I also set up an FTP site where I can upload various databases related to places to wheel. You can find that here.

;D

Way over here in P-cola we have a swamp that has trails through it. It's about 20-30 minutes south of I-10 on Blue Angel HWY. Entrance is behind a store named Deja Vu. Good mud to be slung.

OK Mopar man get out your map... blueberry hill follow 573 west past big scrub hang a right at the next clay road 523 follow it to 595-1 another major clay road. Go straight across the road and follow the sand trail. Blueberry hill will be on your right about a couple miles down. Keep a look out for it.

Ok... A spot a little further north.... ;D

Called the Rodman Sand pits....

Free for all...
Close to bathrooms for the women...
mostly just a big sand box.

From the south...

head up to/thru the Ocala Nat. Forest on SR-19.
Just before you get to the cross florida barge canal bridge, the road is on your left, with a sign saying Rodman Reservoir or Rodman Dam.

Follow that road all the way past the dam and the sandpits are at the end of the road.

That sounds like the place i'm thinking of. I've only seen it at night, so I don't know much about the trails around there.
