ummm Florida...

Area is nice, but the trail itself isn't that long. How built are these fullsizes? the trail has gotten a lot harder in the past few years, but there are only a few "hard" things on it

depends on the size of the group i guess. ive run it in 2.5 hours with a group of 3. fullsizes should be fine up there.

there are some great campgrounds on Rt 2.

If you go, please stay on the trail and pack out what you pack in... leave it better than you found it. -EPO's and other LEO's are taking notice
BTW no road or town name on this thread no town.. keep in PM's lets keep the greenie's away!

There are only two large obstacles up there, but it should be noted that ALL go arounds are illegal. As Supazuk said, that road gets a lot of attention, so stay on the trail.

I'd say if you wheel the whole thing, and then turn around, at about the halfway point of the trail there is a nice spot you could camp. Some locals call it the "Moonrock" just a big spot that is all rock where you could park the rigs, and some trees here and there, Im sure you could find comfortable spots to set up tents. The trail would probably be fun in a couple of full size'ers, wear kidneybelts though the trail bounces you around constantly, just constant loose big rocks. I like it, one of my favorite trails that is close to home

I just ran it with my club last weekend. There are only 2 obstacles worth mentioning..

1 of our members ran it with only one locker, a 4" lift and 33s.

Oh and cell phones work up there now, they threw a tower up somewhere nearby...

you'll have a good time but 6 hours with rigs on 38s... No way. That is unless you have a club in front of you. This weekend underground jeeps is up there. they'll probably be at least 15 strong.

also, we were looking for info on dirtbikes up there

i dont have one, but several of our friends do, they fit the trail limit of under 1000 lbs

but since we are from ct, they wouldnt be mass registered and it seems like this may be an issue from what we're reading

The road is an unmaintained town road. No registration, No use. That goes for ALL vehicles.

Also, there is a mud pit a few minutes before the end that is somewhat deep where another locked rig needed a pull and I don't mean the POND which must be entered. No legal bypasses around the POND at the end. Stay to the center or the left of center, do not go right!!!

Taken form the Northeast association of 4 wheel drive clubs forum;

DETAILS:
OFR is a discontinued town road .
It features two challenging rock ledge obstacles, a sometimes deep but hard bottomed water crossing, and lots of large loose rock.

LIMITATIONS:
Open year round, please be considerate of other trail users.
Pleae try to limit runs to 2x per year.
Side trails and go-arounds are OFF limits.
Please Voluntarily post your scheduled dates.


NEA STATEMENT:
In keeping with our goals of minimizing our impact on the environment, we are instructing any members and asking all motorized users of OFR, that chose to travel the full length of the road, to only cross the water hole on the left side, where there is a hard bottom and to stay out of the re-vegetated area and the deeper water to the right when traveling in the direction of south to north.
