Riding Near Panama City

Headed down to PC for a week, and wanted to take my WR250R with me. Anything worth checking out? I'll most likely just take on day and ride. Doesn't have to be dirt, just interesting and rural.

Dang, 57 views and not one suggestion? Guess I should just leave it at home.

Panama City

I'm going to Panama City Beach for a week of vacation starting Saturday the 9th. I want to go riding at least 2 or 3 days. I've heard Elgin Air Force Base is nice. I'll ride with you if are schedules work out.

Welcome to the area

Just saw your post.

We ride a lot over in the Pcola area. 11 of us rode Blackwater yesterday and are riding again today. Just watch thread or post up when you can ride.

When are you coming down. We host rides all the time for Yankees! That's anyone north of Fl state line

Riding Near Panama City

Most of the land in rural Bay county is all private hunting lease stuff so no real public place to ride. Now there are some dirt/service/dog run roads up in the ecofina creek water management area off hwy 20 in north bay county/south Washington county.

I would leave it home and enjoy the beach/water, unless you hook up with the Pensacola group.

Sorry, but the riding within any reasonable distance around here pretty much sucks, paved or unpaved.

As Skimo noted, the NWFL water management area around econfina is pretty much it.
Its going to be at least 40 mins of 60-65 MPH paved road slogging to get there from the beach, something I find pretty tedious on little bikes.

Many of the DOG roads can be really deep sand.
They are also sporadic as what ones are open.
I have not been up there in the past few months, so cant comment on what is open or what the current conditions are like.

Sounds about right. It'll still be 900 degrees in FL but it'll be pleasant up in the mountains.

Damn, that should have went in PC Riders, but the more the merrier! As you know, how can you go wrong in the neck of the woods!
