Yes...But, for right now you need to know somebody who knows the land owner to gain access...The trails are not open to the public for now...

Word on the street is that the trails will open to the public in June. I believe it'll be a pay per use situation.

Looking at the google maps, the only thing behind the best buy are power lines. Some trail type stuff, but not sure what else might be there. Is this the area you guys are talking about? Would be great if there was a place to go less than 3hrs away...

Not at all, it's actually closer to the Ale House than Best Buy, but it is the same area. Here's a google map screen shot.

Also, has anybody heard of the Cardinal Swamps? Found this link to their Facebook group. Right off Cardinal near Bonita Fitzgerald I think.

Hope so, there aren't any signs saying no entry or anything. I just don't like to go on unfamiliar trails without a partner.

Cardinal Swamps is 100% illegal and a dumping ground for stolen cars. Beware, this is not a place you should play at. The other area is supposedly under development by someone who is going to open it up for pay for use. It's all chatter right now though - none of the forum threads I've seen actually had the owner piping in. Just people who supposedly have helped and/or been invited to wheel. Hopefully it's the real deal.

Why not be respectful and wait until the owner opens the trails up to the public? He's getting close, and all that people trespassing will do is delay it for the rest of us...
