Is the the "Tread Lightly Four Wheel Drive Way" the same map system that is listed in the FL4WDA forums? and are they the only "Trails" not fire roads that there are for us to use?
it is the same, the gps/google maps from the FL4WDA Forum
show the 81 miles FL4WDA proposed. however it is hardly the only trails for us to use, its just that we needed some of the trail system designated for our recreation otherwise our group is lumped into the subaru 2wd clubs and its hard to define recreation standards that way. explanation for why we chose what we did is long winded and mentioned in various places online.
There are trails in ONF with the Jeep symbol that are not listed on the Ocala pdf map system. My scouting group had a hard time finding a trail system that the ONF maps showed "trail system 0520" which runs on maps
7-8-9. which shows the whole loop system when put together in this number set up.
Coming out of Juniper Springs heading East on 40, turned right on 37 which should have ran into the 0520 but they could not find it.
Thanks for any help. We just want to make sure we run the right trails and that we can find them.
sorry, not familiar with 37. and do you mean 05-20? the numbering has a meaning to what main road a trail is off from as well as how far it is from other roads. its honestly a bit confusing and i dont think very helpful to the general public...and some officials agree.
all trails listed in the MVUM
are for licensed vehicles unless otherwise noted, on the trail these routes are identified with a jeep symbol as is the 4WD trail. the main difference with the 4WD trail is that once off the main roads you should see additional carsonite posts with jeeps and arrows to keep you on the 4WD route but other trails will have this too.
and so its also clear, there is no fee associated with the ocala 4wd route since the recreation intended along the actual trail is consistent with level 3 (or was it 4?) maintenance roads already managed by usfs funding.
