I'll be out of town I have to go see my sister and her new baby that weekend.

earliest I can go would be the weekend of the 21st or Aug 4th. On the 4th I would have my little one. So I end up spending most of my time working with her on learning.

most of the trails are thin - there was one right down the middle that was wide enough but it was all whoops. maybe out in the big dirt play area?

Big Scrub is in Ocala National Forrest. It is the place I was telling you about the other day.

big scrub is a huge place to ride. lots of fun, hundreds of trails. however, according to some of the people I know who have gone there recently, and 90% of the people on atvflorida, they have put down a lot of new restrictions. not just adding the helmet laws and the permit law, but actually reduced some of the trails to ride on. I'm still up for going, but my excitement level isn't where it was the first couple times I went up there.

Restrictions from what we could see was that you could not ride on the main roads and the parking on the side was limited to parking areas only Not down the side anywhere like it use to be. Alot of open areas to ride and trails.

+1 and that was just a few weeks ago. A few of the trails were closed but not many from what we saw.

I'll be picking up my daughter's ATV tonight or Sunday

Agent thanks for the info on Croom. I don't have a utility vehicle but in the past, I've never seen any out there except the red emergency one used by the FD. I didn't want anyone going up there and get turned away at the door.

rhino DEFINATELY ok for big scrub. Check that number out vader and give croom a call, they probably will be ok with it. I don't think they will have a problem.

ONF, bug scrub is the biggest off road area part, right next to the main campground.
