TIME TO TAKE YOUR JEEP OUT!
A beginner’s trail ride.
You’re driving down the trail following your drone, and then it happens…
You start to talk to the camera about what you see and realize the GoPro is not there. Stop, land the drone, go back. Randy I left the GoPro back there on a pole to record the clouds. So we head back knowing no one has passed us on the trail and find the thing sitting just where I left it. Ok, we are good, now let’s get on with the ride.
A few Questions:
Did you just buy your jeep?
Are you visiting the Central Florida area in a Jeep?
Could you be a Jeep owner who has never been off road?
Are you looking for a Jeep ride that won’t leave you stranded?
Then check out Tosohatchee WMA. This Wildlife Management Area (WMA) has an abundance of birds, gators, flowers, trails, creeks, fishing holes, and panoramic views. Bring your camera, because you are going to be treated to repeated opportunities to capture real Florida in its natural setting. A day pass is less than 10 bucks and you can easily spend a half day here just riding around. This is an easy ride, so if you are looking for a trip with more opportunities to challenge your skills try Citrus. At Tosohatchee you will be able to navigate the roads in two wheel drive. Getting stuck would take some work, unless you drive off the road, or where you are not supposed to. Stay on the roads while visiting because it is a sensitive environment. WMAs do have fees and you can check the link below to find out how to get an annual day use pass.
During hunting season you need to be aware the hunters may have been sitting in an area for some time. Don’t go wandering off trail on foot too far you could get turned around. Always clean up after yourself and stay on the roads. Remember this is a maintained area with gravel a roadway that can be traversed by most vehicles. Always avoid puddles when you can so you don’t displace the dirt. If you can stop in the Ranger station, they will help you out and you can and ask some questions. There are also some Geocaching spots to provide a cool treasure hunt aspect to your adventure. Pack a lunch and enjoy natural Florida. Till the next ride, get out and enjoy your Jeep, you will be glad you did.
