As a new to dirt rider, I have tried my hand at several offroad venues that are relatively local to me. Bone Valley ATV park: It is what it is. It's ok, not great (too short), but it is close to me. Centennial Trail Ocala: 1st foray into real sand...HOLY CRAP! Ride cut short by me (20 miles in) freaking out about having a head on after nearly having a head on with a quad. If it was one way only, I would have enjoyed it. Frostproof/Sebring area: More dual sport with hard pack orange clay agriculture roads. Fun, but not enough offroad. Didn't know where we were going. Richloam: Where I was, it was too short (8 miles or so). Lots of hunters hanging at there trucks. Croom: Rode as much as I could. All the lettered trails. Just as sandy as the Centennial trail. With that being said (or written), I did get the yearly permit for Croom. I just feel like I am missing something. Everyone talks about how great it is. I rode the lettered trails that were 10-20 feet wide and what felt like 2 feet deep of very soft sand. The spider web of trails in the woods were crazy tight for me. Are there any trails at Croom that are more hard packed and through the woods? You know, "Baby Trails". As a mountain biker, I ride the greens, the blues, and the black diamonds. I am looking for the motorcycle equivalent of the blues and greens. As always any help is appreciated.
