Ocala Nation Forest Jeep Trail Help?

Hey guys, so I'm planning a trip to go with some friends to Ocala and ride their trails there along with camping for a few days. I'm new to the Jeeping community and this will be my first time trailing. I have no lift, but I am on 31's. Anyone ever been through Ocala and have a firsthand experience of clearance I need and if I will have enough for the trail? Anyone else want to give some input? Every opinion is appreciated. Thanks!

I haven't done the trails in ONF for a while as I don't like the area, but you shouldn't have too much trouble with other Jeeps to help.

Some of the trails can be very tight, overgrown and will cause Jeep pin striping.

It has been wet here so watch yourself in the holes.

Just enjoy.......

pin striping as in scratches. The trails can be very tight. I went out there over the weekend on the west side of 19 and came into a section of trail that was blocked by a fallen tree. I had to back out about a 1/4 of a mile. scratchhhhhhh

I've been looking for some trails in FL to hit. Where in Ocala National Forest can you drive the trails? Is there specific entrance I need to go to?

I know the thread is a little old but drive out SR 40 and look for a brown marker with .9 on it everything branches off of it. You can go left or right off of 40. They aren't joking, my jeep is scratched to shit but it's a jeep, that's what it's made for, right?!
