Croom Questions??

I'm looking to go to Croom tomorrow. I'm not too sure how to get there, or what to look for. I know where CROOM is, but not the part where jeeps are able to go. I'm in Tampa. Any help appreciated!

Thanks Joe! I will definitely look in to that. I appreciate it. And yeah, Add me as a friend, I'd love to get together with a bunch of other jeeps. I've never been offroading before.

There are trails for Jeeps in Citrus, Croom and Richloam. Richloam is the most swamp/mud usually. Croom is the dustiest due to the most sugar sand type trails. Citrus is nice since its trail seem more clay based. Make sure you stay on trails at all times.

Sorry, just saw the Citrus reply. Search Holder Mine or Tillis Hill campground in Citrus. That will get you to those and the board at those campgrounds usually have maps. Stage Coach Rd I think will take you right past a main entrance to Citrus trails.
