I went to Picketville/Commonwealth about 2 weeks ago - is really dry right now.
Wife and I tried to find "Four Creeks" but all the roads were blocked off with gates from the Yulee side /shrug.
Went to a small trail by Town Center behind the Gate gas station/apartments - assume this is what everyone was talking about?
Guy @ work mention the FJ Cruiser guys are going to an area of Southside Blvd. and Hogan road - he showed me the map on google.
I'm down for a trip to Osceola forest if anyone wants to meet up or beach...whatever

Anyone heard of Four Creeks in Nassau -- one of the FJ Cruiser guys @ work mentioned the area. Allowed to drive? Any good trails?

I wouldn't drive on any land that has signs posted personally.
Unfortunately, its the property owner's burden to post the signs to keep people away:
Under Florida Statutes section 588.10, a property owner must provide proper notice to all parties that may enter the property. All gates, fence corners, and all boundaries that lay along waterways must have posted notices of proper size and composition. The postings can be no more than 500 feet apart. If no notice of trespassing is posted on a piece of property and the party cannot know who owns the land, the party may not be able to be assumed to be a trespasser. This may change the party's status in liability for damages for harm that may befall that individual. Certain facilities require different wording in the posted notices, and a different penalty for the person caught trespassing.
Keep in mind even if there are not signs, you could still be charged under:
Chapter 375.314, Florida State Statutes prohibits persons from damaging any public lands by the use of a motor vehicle and in addition to criminal penalties, also subjects the owners of the vehicles to civil liability for damages caused by the actions of their vehicles. Violators can be arrested by any law enforcement officer who witnesses a violation of this law, or for criminal trespassing.

My TJ (4.0l 3spd auto with 92k) normally sits at 210 degrees but with the higher temps lately its been juuuuust above that, but when I'm idling (today I sat in a chick fila line for like 15 minutes) the jeeps temp started to go up.

For anyone that doesn't mind a jeep trip, the Sheriff's Jeepfest is open for registration. It's a charity event held right after Labor Day from Sept. 5-7 in Jasper, GA about 60 miles north of Atlanta, so about a 6 to 6.5 hour ride from Jacksonville.
It has just about everything - obstacle courses, mud, Show and Shine, vendors, music, and trail rides from easy to difficult. They had over a thousand jeeps last year, which was their 3rd year for the event. I missed it last year but some friends went and had a great time, and I'm all set to go this year.

|HARLEYDAWG01||Is this commonwealth rd area also called Picketville? I overheard some local jeepers talking about mudslinging at Picketville this weekend.|

By the way, if you didn't see it, last years Ultimate Adventure took a swing through the Southeast for their annual jeeping trip.
The last part of the trip was stopping in Daytona Beach, then they rode to Mayport, took the Mayport Ferry, and then on to the Gulches. This video is the last part of the trip:
Part 5: 600 Mile Drive to Gulches Off-Road Park in South Carolina - 2013 Ultimate Adventure Week - YouTube
Fortunately, it was dry when we were there. If it's wet, it makes it much more difficult with the slick clay, and the park will close if there's too much rain. Also, in the video they took on some of the biggest obstacles and hardest lines. You can still have a blast on the intermediate trails and even the difficult trails where you can take bypasses around the really big rocks.

We didn't camp because it was crowded for Memorial Day weekend and there were a couple of spouses that went with us that didn't want to camp, so we stayed in Clinton about 30 minutes away. If you camp there, you can also do night rides which we didn't get a chance to do.
Oh, and there was someone there for the weekend from a BBQ joint selling BBQ, hamburgers and moonshine. I bought myself some of the strawberry moonshine in a quart jar to take home.

|HARLEYDAWG01||Brighton, Any camping at the park? Maybe talk my buddy into dragging a toy hauler . There are few things that cant be cured with a keg of beer and a grill !!!!!!|
|05-27-2014 04:47 PM|
Maybe some of us here on the forum could organize a group ride? It was busy for Memorial Day weekend, but I understand most weeks there are 15-20 jeeps tops.

I deleted the first sentence of my post because I don't want to resort to name calling, even if you did call me a smart@ss and seem to come here with an attitude.
Seriously, you're new to this forum and this thread. Relax, read some posts, learn some of the forum etiquette and what some of the rules are and you'll find this is a welcoming group of jeepers.

|HARLEYDAWG01||Brighton. That trip to SC looked amazing. Was it worth the drive? Maybe a group ride in the future?|

|x_jeepologist91_x||Everyone, I apologize for being rude, I was just trying to give people a fun place to go, didn't realize it would raise such a commotion, I've been going wheeling wherever since I was little and we've just always gone wherever we could find, and usually owners didn't care if you were just trail riding as long as you weren't messing things up or trashing the place.. again, my apologies, happy trails.|

|JRoweMDN||There is a new place opening some obstacle courses in Wildwood. It is about 2 hours from Jax. They are a mud put but a local jeep club is setting up some other stuff. I think it is called Muddy Hammock. Could be enough with Hardrock 30 minutes north to make a weekend trip and ride ONF or Citrus WMA.|
|05-26-2014 08:59 PM|
|brighton||Doesn't matter who owns the property, bragging about wheeling on property that's not legal on a public forum is stupid and is one of the reasons there are so few places to wheel.|
