    My Father and Brother are just getting into this type of riding and I wanted to help them by giving them a couple choices..
    Does anyone have any routes in Florida that they would not mind sharing?

    We get together yearly and ride together so this would be a great opportunity to get back home and ride with the famly...


    Many thanks

    Not sure about the original poster, but I am trying to find a route from Miami all the way to the north of Florida. :)

    I'm interested in hearing about anything without pavement in south FL. Live near Ft. Lauderdale, but we ride regularly up to Lake O. and south to the tip in Everglades Nat. Park. Anything???

    Go to Dixie Dual Sports. They are the dual sports club in FLA and they have lots of rides. Fair warning-Ocala National Park and south is sand and sugar sand. very difficult riding especially on bigger adventure bikes (GS etc). NOrth up through Oseola national park the roads are mostly dirt, so dual sporting on bigger bikes is more fun.

    Dixie Dual Sports is a great group and only costs about $20 a year to join. Highly recommended

    +1 on Oseola National Forest. I spent a day there exploring and it is a lot of fun.

    Ocala National Forest is fun on the dirt roads 70-80 mph at times with no traffic. You might not see anyone all day. And, you can probably ride dirt roads for couple hundred miles with merely crossing paved roads but not riding them. However, the big 950 in the sugar sand= not fun. Go the day after it rains.

    Look here. Treeman has posted a few, but you will have to wade through quite a few posts to find them.

    I'm looking at doing a trip from Atl- Tampa. I am going to use part of the TeT
    to north Florida.
    Does anyone have advice or routes across the panhandle down south towards Tampa.
    The more dirt the better.

    Thanks for the help

    That actually might be an option for our way back since we will be leaving Key West on Friday morning and need to be in Sanford to catch the auto train on Saturday afternoon. Yes it wont be a desirable one but after spending 6 days getting to Key west hitting the sand roads of the state and national forrests on the way down I am sure my wife might need a break.
    Thank you, Butch

    Ocala National Forest is a huge area to explore, I have yet to run the bike up there. I have had the Jeep out there a number of times over the years, I remember a lot of sand. Still a greenhorn to duel sport and adv riding but have been running Jeeps for a long time, sad to say but a lot of trails are becoming unusable due to the increase in the popularity of side by sides, often where they are not allowed. Withlacoochee State Forest has some good tracks as well, some are very sandy. Popular with the Jeeping community. Croom has an off road/off highway vehicle area for dirt bikes and 4wheelers if that's your thing.
