I am getting sick of having to take a "trip" up to ocala every time I want to squeeze in some trail time. So lately I have been searching and searching locally to find some decent trail systems since there is so much land in the area.
Recently I stumbled across a few of the many "preserves" that are all over the area. What bugs me about these places is that I have seen guys entering the gates to go offroading but they are not open to the public. Does anyone know how to gain access to them? I have only been out on one once(following one of the vehicles) and there are some great trails out on them.
Some examples of the ones I have been to are.. Jay B. Starkey Wilderness Park, Connor Preserve, Cypress Creek Preserve. And this website has a ton more but I do not know if the others actually have any trails on them. SWFWMD Recreation
