I lived in south florida a few years ago, and I would always go to Big Cypress Natual Preserve. I don't know if they still let you wheel there, but it is FUN. That is just west of Ft. Lauderdale off of 595 or SR 84 (if memory serves me right.)

Also if you go south of Homestead/Florida City in Dade County (like if you're going to the Keys) go on the alternate route (Card Sound Road)and just after the road begins, there are some trails to your left -- mostly ATV's but some Jeeps and swamp buggies.

There is also Loop Road just before Shark Valley on the Tamiami Trail (US 41) in extreme western Dade County. Loop Road is good for 2wd vehicles too during the dry season, and it's about a 20 mile trail and some nice scenery of the everglades. (my son used to love it because there's gators on the trail!)

For south Florida, that's about it, because all of our old spots are now subdivisions!

Check with Big Cypress before you treck out there because they might require a permit be purchased in advance.

Hope this helps!

thx happymudder!

I did some searchingand came up with 'corbett' in loxahatchee area... MAN! that is serious stuff there! I ended up getting flooded and have a week of cleaning infront of me now! def need some good tires too it seems (and a snorkel just incase)

check corbett out...that is some serious stuff with some real cool trails, which some are only passeable with swamp buggies

if you ever wanna go out, let me know! I got a lifted 2WD and a stock 4WD (one in sig) that'll go as long as its easy enough for us to keep up! (for a while, i'm going to stay away from water FYI lol)

Thanks for the invite, but I dont live in south Florida anymore. I have relocated to North-Central Florida, but I occasionally go down to visit friends/family, so I'll shoot you a PM the next time I'm down there.

I still got my old CJ 5 at my dad's place in Homestead.

I've lurked there for a few months and for a stock or close to stock guy, it seems like most of them don't want to even bother.
