So I really have no idea. I don't know exactly where it is, and I don't know where to actually buy the permit. I was really hoping someone that's been before would also like to go to show the newb (me) around haha.

I don't think that is talking about a specific trail, just general information about how the trails are.

But, I just looked at the website again, doesn't look like only going on Monday, or any half day would work based on the office hours for their inspection building

This is where you get the permit

https://www.nps.gov/bicy/planyourvis...tor-center.htm



https://www.nps.gov/bicy/planyourvis...cle-office.htm

Call and find out the water level and get an up dated trail map. Some trails might be closed. also they do a close the area down for 60 days, just can't remember when that time of the year is.

There some videos on you-tube

Lazy Springs off-road park is a nice place. It's about 1.5 hours from Fort Lauderdale, west on alligator ally in Felda Florida.

Oh I hadn't seen that before, that looks like a nice place to go. I'll have to give them a call tomorrow and see if they're open on Monday for the holiday

Here is a link to our Jeep Clubs site, Black Sheep. We have a section with local off-road spots and a section that has local events going on in our area (Fort Laduerdale/Miami), Meet and Greets, Jeep/car shows and all kinds of events ect. Create a user name and drop by to say hello. We always have things going on every other week if not every week.

4 Wheel Chat

You should come out to our next Greet and Meet at Denny's. We have a show the first Saturday night of each month from 7pm-10pm. Everybody from the show gets 10% off their bill if you eat there. Here is a link to the event.

Signed up for black sheep's forum. Thanks for that. I'll try and make it to the meet up on the 4th.

If anyone is interested, after learning about lazy springs, I think I'm going to try and make a trip up there tomorrow since I have the day off. I called and they said they were going to be open. If anyone is interested between now and then, lemme know! probably leaving by 9 or 10.
