|WahooWolfe||Went out there last Friday. There are tons of wildflowers blooming. I don't know the names of the flowers but lots of purple variety and some yellow "daisies" blooming. Beautiful weather and day!|

There is another very large WMA west of Clermont. Richloam WMA has many trails to explore, and FWIR, is free to enter. Its part of the expansive Withlacoochee state forest. I have gone out there a few times, and its a fun time. Some of the tighter trails (you know the ones that give you trail pinstripes) were pretty shady, which made the mosquitos a bit of a problem in the open cab.
There are some good pics in this thread, from a few FJs who went out to explore. Have a look, and google "Richloam WMA FL" for more info and maps.

32,000 acres... It really is a cool place that few people know about locally.
Tight tree lined trails with full canopy coverage from trees, Wide open St Johns Riverside trails with huge vistas of the St Johns, open palmetto lined trails, Powerline roads, primitive campsites and my favorite, Fish Hole Road where there are a few small ponds along the trail. You can park in designate parking areas and hike if you like to any spot for a picnic. Pretty much they don't care a lot as long as you aren't blocking a trail or fire lane or service road.
I think it costs like $6 for a daily per vehicle use permit which you leave in the unattended entrance gate inside a box. Wildlife officers(Rangers) are located on site at the entrance trailer and occasionally make rounds. I do know that Taylor Creek road which goes into the area has a small bridge that sometimes is under repair so you may need to enter from the SR 520 side.

ditto on both Ocala which is endless and closer to town Tosahatchee.
Other than some sections of loose sand and occasional mud, Tosa can be driven with an average car for the most part with Flat semi improved hard packed dirt trails/road. The trails are extensive and go through some various types of environments from pine flatwoods to wetlands and run to the St Johns river in one area.

|WahooWolfe||Go over to Tosahatchee WMA. Take SR 50 from the 408 and just past Christmas you'll see the sign and turn right. About a 1 1/2 down the road on the left you'll see the entrance. It is an easy dirt road with plenty of things to see and places to hike around if you're so inclined. Your JK can easily do it with no problems. I would caution to let someone know where you're going to be as there is little if any cell coverage there. My battery died on me there so I know from experience . Take a camera with you, too!|

Central Florida (Kissimmee)
Looking for somewhere to take what is currently a stock JK off road in the Central Florida area. It is a daily driver so although I am not afraid of bumps and scrapes, I can’t afford to break it…
