8th Street and 137 Ave trails. No name that I know of.
The terrain is rocky, muddy, and rough.
I recommend going in a group of 3 minimum with recovery gear. Trails can turn into deep nasty mud pits that will swallow up even the biggest of rigs.
Trails vary in difficulty, be careful. Pic coming soon.

The humps.
Follow turnpike or us1 south headed for key west. Stop at racetrack on 35426 S Dixie Hwy, Florida City, FL 33034. Usually on the weekends there are a lot of offroad es out there and they usually stop at the gas station to prep for the trails. Talk to anyone there and they can point you to the closest entrance.

Terrain varies from trails to mud pits to humps. Google Earth can help you navigate the trails. Recovery gear is recommended I do not recommend you go alone as a novice. Pics will be posted soon.

NW 41st street.
West where the road ends. No known name.
This is the perfect terrain for beginners.
No mud during dry season. Very light trails. Some puddles. No recovery gear needed you could go alone. Great for a first time experience. Pic coming soon.

The HUMP can also be accessed via Tennesse road, here are two ways

- go to the end of Tennesse road and to the left is a "private road" for the rock quary, if both gates open you can use that road. Then follow that road and make a right at next stop sight and go south. The end of that road is the hump/ squares.

-on tennesse go south from palm drive like above but you will not go to the end of tennesse; you will make a left after the last apt complex on a dirt road and then a right next street and go all the way south till hit end like above choice.

this thread talk about Le Hump

Moto Xross Fun - SoFlaSportbikes.com - South Florida's Sportbike Community

also one below

https://www.wranglerforum.com/f23/jee...l#post28224170

some video.. a little long the second one.. like Pabs said... on weekends the HUMP has a good amount of people

-in general, lets try to pickup after we visit and also lets be nice to the security guard at the private road on the quary

- right of card sound road as soon as you make the left onto it, within 200 meters there is an entrance on the left that goes to the HUMP area.. the other access card sound from what I have seen lately can only be accessed with small vehicles bc there are rock dumped at entrance

Google map it. Get on to the palmetto 826 and find the nw36 street exit. Head west. All the way to where the road ends. 36 street will become 41st street. Just literally head west till you can't anymore. There will be a swing gate on your right. Open it and have fun exploring

Looking at google earth, it ends by a power station? Right past the detention center, correct?

Yes past the detention center, to the right of the entrance of the power station. The power station is as far as you can go. It's closed off

IMPORTANT SIDE NOTE ABOUT:
8th Street and 137
End of Bird rd/coral way

There is something in the mud at these locations that will stain the paint clearcoat on your jeep temporarily. It takes 2 to 3 washes and a couple of weeks to fade away completely. No worries it's not permanent

Some advise about meeting fellow offroaders whilest at these trails:

It is not a bad idea at the humps or at other locations to post up at the entrance and wait for other people to come thru to join them and make a little convoy.

I MUST WARN HOWEVER, make sure that the people you choose to ride with have simular Jeeps or rigs in general that are simular to yours in lift size, tire size, and traction devices. It will ensure that the trails that you will experience are within the limits of what your jeep can do.

As an example, I did this but made the big mistake of tagging along with a group of hardcore ATV and side by side vehicles. Thsee guys led me thru some of the worst trails that a Jeep should never traverse unless built for extreme performance offroading. It cost me almost a 1000$ in parts damage navigating those hell holes.

I crushed a wheel, crushed my lower control arm bracket, bent my steering linkage, bent my track bars and possibly bent my front axle housing. The guy who I talked to and I followed was kind enough to stay with me and give me a hand when changing my wheel out for my spare also performing what repairs I could in the night. His group however was not so charitable. They were trying to talk him into ditching me and we're criticizing me for even following them. This is a reality of offroading. Learn from my mistakes.

that sucks.. there is a trail that I explored on my motocross thinking I might be able to use it to get to hump on jeep but that thing had some huge holes.. it runs probably 300 meters west of Tennessee road..

sucks about their attitude...

I go to hump to pretty much drive my jeep but can not say i really do any crawling LOL

out of curiosity, my tyres are 35 and usually for driving I keep em at 33-36 lbs but take them to the low end 33-30 lbs when wan to go hump..

what pressure you use/change to?

Run 30 psi on the street and 12-14 off-road if you have on-board air or a good air compressor to air up and you'll notice a huge improvement on street driving, tire wear and off-road traction.

Then think about investing in one. A jeep with no lockers running 12 psi will get you further than one with lockers running 36 psi.

I have gone as low as 12 psi in the front and usually go 15psi all around. An air compressor is a very good investment in this gig. There is a justifiable difference in traction and ride quality. Nobody here in south FL seems to know about this tho.

I was out performing Suzuki samurai built for the mud with35"+ mud tires

The trail that you are talking about runs close to some apartments right? I think that's the one I went thru. The problem was that since it had rained like crazy that week the holes were filled up with mud and water hiding the true characteristics of the trail. After talking it over with other Jeepers they have all suffered all sorts of carnage down that path.

NW 41st has been closed for a while and has No Trespassing signs on every light pole past the jail leading up to the gate. Just an FYI.
