Are there any good trails or mud holes near Orlando that are closer than the Ocala National Forest? For instance, something I could hit during the day and be back home in a couple of hours?

Im in the same predicament. Went out to Tosohatchee last weekend, pretty tame for the most part but some spots can be spicy after rain.

I'm thinking of checking out Forest Road 46 and some of the surrounding trails in Ocala this weekend. I don't have a winch so I am going to be conservative with where I wheel until I get my parts.

I did a big loop through Ocala NFS, followed a Gaia trail. It was back in early October so I didnt have much water but for everything else it handled it perfectly. Be careful on some of those trails, the Bronco is so wide and the brush/foilage will DEFINITELY leave pinstriping and once you commit you gotta go on with it.

I'm thinking about checking this out Sunday if I can get out early enough, lots of mud potential and some technical areas

That trail is in my favorites and one I am looking forward to trying out.

I-4 remains pretty bumpy and gets especially hairy when it rains. Whoops, I missed the part about being home in a hour. My bad...
