It is not recommended that you attempt to drive through this park at any time without first familiarizing yourself with the terrain and safety guidelines. Here are some basic tips to help you enjoy your trip.
Before getting into the park, be sure to have all your required licensing and immunizations in place. You don't want to get caught without those necessary documents, which could get you in trouble. Check your current states Off Road Vehicle Regulations (IRV) to make sure that you are allowed to drive on their portion of the park. Some states, such as Washington, don't require licensing and only require proof of immunization. That's why it's so important to know how much space you're driving on depending on your IRV status. The number one priority is to stay out of the forested areas.
Depending on how far away you are from the closest town, you will need to take a little extra time to prepare. If you're traveling by car, you'll need to get a jump start or a battery of batteries and some oil to change the spark. If you're hiking, be sure to bring food and water to keep your body hydrated. Clothes, shoes, and gloves are also very important if you're going to be in the off road area for any length of time. There are no showers in this region, so water is a must.
The weather conditions change drastically when you're going in this region. The temperature can go from hot in the morning to cool in the evening. There's even a risk of thunderstorms if the weather isn't stable enough. In general, you should avoid visiting this particular area in the summer months. Rain is very likely and temperatures are not stable enough to go trekking or hiking. You should be aware of the risks involved before you head out to this popular off road area.
It's important to remember that even though the forested area is considered off road, it isn't necessarily completely abandoned. You'll find plenty of wildlife here, including alligators, deer, coyotes, and even bobcats. Many off road parks welcome pets, but be aware that they may be caught up with and injured while hunting. If you do decide to bring a pet, you should consider whether you pet can be handled by trained professionals or if it will need to be left behind in the elements on your own.
When you visit this particular off road park, there are many great activities that you can partake in. Some include: horseback riding, camping, climbing, swimming, hiking, and river rafting. All of these activities are available year-round, as well as many other activities. However, the most exciting of all is the opportunity to go trekking and biking through some of the most amazing scenery in Florida. The trails for biking and hiking are challenging but very rewarding.
