We got on Miami Canal Rd from the north and meet with two locked gates. By the time we figured out the route (with possibly one more locked gate) we ran into that storm. We turned tail and it chased us all the way to Clewiston. We waited out at Roland Martin's Fish Camp.

Just walked in my door in Jupiter. How was the Swamp Café?

The cafe was dead. Lol. I sat on there porch and smoked a cigar. Then I remembered my jeep buddy might be a lazy springs atv park. So I mapped out a back route to felda, fla. and stopped by and checked the place out. Only got mild rain. Got home around 6pm. Too bad your side was closed. You all would have enjoyed those back roads. Sounds like we must try again. The couple that posted from east broward let me know when you want to ride.

Looks like sort of what I'm looking for, but I have a DR650, so I'd want to explore a little more off road terrain, too.

At least you guys had fun. I was stuck at work

I am suprised you found closed gates.........run that route many times and never had it blocked!!!

I thought about hitting the farm lands in the Redlands but by the time our company left and we got some lunch the storm had rolled in and it pretty much didn't let up the rest of the day. Off and on rain most all afternoon. Made for good naps watching football and the race!!

I am still looking at October 5 or 6 to ride.

Welcome.........but sand sucks..............really bad!!!

Be careful with water, never know when the road you have traveled a hundred times, and you think the water can't be that deep, only to find the new gully run through the low spot!!!!!!!! When it dries up this winter there will lots of fun places for your bikes in the Squares and out off Sable Palm Drive, however from east Broward that will be a long haul on the little bikes!! You might be better off going for the deeper sand to the north!!

I checked Google Earth today and from the point we turned back it looks to be gate-free all the way to 1296 then Snake Road.
