Miami Trails - 41 St or 8th & 137 Ave

Has anyone been to either nw 41 st or 8 and 137 ave recently? From what I've read those are the two closest trails in Miami. I want to get out there soon and check them out.

Any info on these locations would be appreciated.

It's been about a month since the last time I went to 8th and 137ave. When it's been dry like it has been recently, you can easily go out there in 2wd and have some fun. Sometimes if you go a little bit deeper, that's when you get into the really harry stuff. Never been to 41st though. I'm usually available in the afternoon/evening but, if you ever want to just go explore and need someone to go along with, go ahead and PM me.

Heard just a few days ago that FPL has posted No Trespassing signs At 41st Street.

Group run

I'm new to wheeling as well. Been working on the YJ and would like to test it out offroad. I'd join a group ride at either location.

I'd be willing for 8th street, problem is I don't know if you could would be willing to go on this coming Wednesday or Thursday or any kind of night rides (even though its not the best option). I usually work on weekend and I work this friday.

Weekends

I can do weekends, Saturday or Sunday, as I work on weekdays and am often out of town for work. I am normally back for weekends. I have no off-road experience so I don't know that I would do nights yet. Let me know.

Well I've been to 8th and 137 like twice, and I sort of know my way around. I have my spot lights and my head lights so I don't mind being lead vehicle. If you guys are up for just doing some scoping around I'd definitely be up for it I'll be cool with a night ride. The parts that get real nasty are deeper into the area, which I wouldn't go into at night, but the majority of the parts that I know are mainly trail like and they're not bad at all (went out one day in my buddy's 2wd f250 and he only got stuck on a big mound of dirt because he's an idiot who didn't listen to me telling him to go around it). If anything we can go, take a look around and if you guys see something you don't like then we'll turn around and go back. I'm on vacation too but I have to work some days out of the week.

I just really want to go offroad lol

With the time change we have sunlight until well after 7. With that said I am also eager to get out there for the first time and scope out the area. If anyone can go this week after 12:00pm let me know and I'm there. We can always set up another weekend ride when everyone is available.

Edit: I have a 20ft tow rope and suggest each person bring one if they have it.

Tuesday or Thursday are best for me between 11 - 3. Any tow rope should be fine.

I can go on thursday, I have that day off, 11 sounds good for me, should have my winch installed by today hopefully. Yeah any tow rope really, I don't expect it to be used to much as long as you don't go jumping into the nastiest hole out there. Bring my hi lift too just in case.

Glad you guys were able to schedule something. Enjoy. Would've like to join you guys but I work during the weekdays and am out of town until Friday. Let me know about your experience and if anyone is open to a weekend, any weekend, ride.

I think they're going again sometime on weekend, I think they just want to do a simple "check it out for later" kind of thing.

I'd suggest some water/drinks, some snacks probably like jerky or something. Doubt we'll be out there for long but always better to be safe than sorry. Spare tire, simple tools. And above all else, even though it seems obvious, DON'T LEAVE THE COMMON SENSE AT HOME. You don't know how many problems can arise from not using a little common sense.

You guys want to meet up at the entrance of the trail or the chevron(i think) on the corner of 137th and 8th street? Probably show up there around 1030/1045, gotta get some gas before I go in, just in case
