    JWC is deep as the Atlantic lol, but anyone know how Ocala fared through Irma?
    Assuming could be quite a few trees down.

    350+ miles of trails are open this weekend in Ocala, so I'll be going. Probably last time this year I can go, so I will.

    We used to go mess around in Ocala when we were kids but a lot of the trails were super tight. If it's dry out it will definitely be a lot of fun riding some of the hillier and wide open parts.

    My girlfriend's family lives in Jacksonville so might be a nice detour next time I go up.

    Usually start at Trail/road #127 . Off Highway 19
    Then just hit 100+ miles of trails throughout the day.
    Saturday only had some light rain, so it was decently packed/some mud/clay.
    Hit some high speeds through some trails, but going solo kept it somewhat conservative due to all the blind hills.
    Definitely may look into some 3.0's/bump stops so I can go faster lol.

    There are multiple entrances to the Forest.

    I tried to look up the location where you started but I couldn't find it... I want to go there tomorrow. Send me a pin point please. Also pinpoint the location of the last 2 pictures. Thanks

    Quick Markup.

    They are still doing some cleanup, so I did see more Crew/Rangers(?) out there. Some trails do have some trees down, but overall they did a great job getting the place back to normal.

    If ya got a lot of time, there's plenty more to see. Last group outing we found another Quarry north of that one and a lot of trails with good elevation changes. Plenty of spots to get airborne, just make sure you know no one is coming the opposite way.
