Crystal River/Ocala area Nov 15

Hey guys and girls, I am going to be in the Crystal River/Ocala area Nov 15 (this coming weekend). Just wondered if anyone was wanting to do a little wheeling in that area???

I've been to Holder Mine and wouldn't mind someplace new. I prefer Trails with climbing, rocks, berms and such over mud (hate the clean up). But I know with the rain some mud is probably going to happen...

Let me know!

Looks like Hardrock is your kind of place . There's going to be a few of us there Sun doing a bit of clean up and I'm guessing a bit of playing

What Ock said mang. The holder mine area is fun for all that scenic type wheeling as you know but hardrock will be exactly what you want it to. And with a bunch of guys up there they can show you around. Have fun

I had no problems with only 32" tires and no lift, just use common sense and you'll soon see a stock Jeep is a VERY capable critter.


I have an X with no lockers
