off roading at JW Corbett?
I've been trying to see if JW Corbett has any off road trails but most of the information I find is not current. If anyone knows any details please let me know I'm looking for a good place within 100 miles of South Florida, tks!

There are trails out there but it has to be hunting season and you have to have a hunting license with a special stamp

i do corbett a lot specially for dual purpose, i hunt and wheel at the same time, mostly on weekdays since i work on weekends.
trail 6 s nice an sandy right now, and water level is no to high for the guys with out snorkels,
couple weeks ago i took trail 6 west until the canal and then nort to 5 (nice trail under the woods) back to number 3 then out.. nice ride, just a muddy pool entering trail 5 but nothing to worry if you have mts.
other trails still really deep

Went to Corbett last weekend. Pretty decent trails, mostly all the beginning trails from the north entrance are swamped out. South end there are some fun ones. Didn't make it completely through any of the trails though with my stock jeep. Banged up my hood too, newbie mistakes. Would definitely want to ride with more experienced people. All in all I had a good time and few close calls.

Also went last weekend. I like tomato feild-trail 3 to gopher grade. It was DEEP! I run 33" A/T's and dont have any problems, unless you get a little silly in the grassy mud:laugh: I would like to go to this Lazy Springs, it looks like a good time with the family.

We were pushin hood deep in some holes!

There is a grid of roads right next to Corbett that are not paved. Has anyone gone on those?

The time now is 03:30 AM.
