Jeep Trail in Jensen Beach

Anyone know anything about the trail off Goldenrod Road...runs between US 1 and Jensen Beach Blvd? Saw a couple different entries/exits to it a few months back and I had (wrongfully) assumed it was just a little hook someone made through there and was a 2 minute ride at best as I didn't know how deep the woods were there.

My daughter and I were driving around today and decided to finally check it out. Was amazed and happy to see it goes back for quite a ways and has several different trails coming off the main one. Nice little lake back there too.

No signs at all about private property so I assume it's OK to be back there without asking anyone? Anyone do any fishing in that lake? Was wondering if it's OK to go camping back there too? My little girl is only 10...dying to take her camping but she wants to stay close to home the first time! She's nervous about it. So that would be perfect as I live 5 minutes from there.

Thanks for any info!

I've been back in these trails off Goldenrod road several times now. Nice ride through there. Dropped in last weekend and see some younger guys have built a stand in a tree at the lake, added a tire swing there, and a rope swing to jump into the water too. Looks like they are set up to spend a whole weekend there at times. They've got a nice set up but there's a good bit of trash around. Would be nice if they packed up their garbage on the way out.

Every time I go in there, it's just me...but last weekend a saw a couple of the younger guys walking around in there. Once you get around the lake (actually a big pond), the trail that takes you back further into the woods in back has been dug out pretty good now right at the start of that road...so much so that it was full of water from recent rain and even had a duck swimming in it. I didn't venture in as I only have 33's and wasn't sure how deep it was. Had my little girl with me and didn't want to risk getting stuck while she's with me! She'd never go back again!!

Maybe someday I'll run across someone else from Jensen in there.

I wasn't able to get in there last weekend. I should be able to get there this Saturday though. Until then, I'm posting some pics my little girl took the last time we were in there. They are pretty mild but you need 4 wheel drive (briefly) to get to the mild part, and then the part past the lake is definitely 4 wheel. I'll get back in there Saturday.

Here's a map showing the 3 different ways in & out. The middle one is the main one and easily visible from Goldenrod Road. The other 2 are a bit more secluded but once you see them the first time you'll know right where they are. It doesn't show it too good here but there is a road all around the pond. At the tip of the triangle on the pond (closest to US 1) you can see a trail that winds back around in there a good bit. That's the one that's under water some of the time. You need 4 wheel drive on most of it even when it's dry. There are a few little trails off that trail that don't show here either. Not a real big place but not too small either.

Very nice little place, we went yesterday, some sugar sand. If it were wet you probably shouldn't go alone. You need to have 2 Jeeps. Took about 35 minutes to do all the trails. Will definitely go again.

I was in there yesterday too! Went there about 2:30. I appeared to be the only one in there at that time but did see a Toyota pickup on the way out. I took quite a few pics and will post them in a bit.

It's awesome to have a trail around the house where nobody can hassle you. Anyone been through any other trails around Jensen? That is the only one I know of but looking for some new places.

I currently (for 6+ years) live a little more than a mile from this place but will be moving to Palm City in a couple months. If you find some new places in the area, please let me know. I'll do the same. I'll still come back to this spot, just not near as much.

Yes, it's a great location! Take a ride and finish with a couple beers! For me it's all within a couple miles of where I live so works out pretty good.

I think you'll like it. Nice little spot...especially to be right in Jensen Beach like it is and not have to drive far to get to it. Hope I see you in there some weekend. I'm going to see what the fishing is like in that pond one of these days.

Hey thanks for the pictures and post. I've lived here for a while now and actually saw those entrances but thought it must be private property as most of the places I've investigated turn out to be. I'm going to check it out tonight after work. I'll try to take some pics and let you all know how it goes.

This place looks really rad. I'm about an hour from Jensen and I'd be down to ride.

I'm out here now if anyone is nearby. This place is really nice. Not too much underwater. Mostly wet sand. There's a few spots I don't dare go down alone but I'll be coming out here more. There's a sweet little lake with a stand over the water and a cool rope swing. Perfect spot to fish.
