Holder Mine Recreation Area


This is the route from Big Srub Campground to Holder Mine Campground.
when you click on the link, on the right side you can print out the directions. I try to use as much back roads but the quickest route


https://goo.gl/maps/cAE4n7SrBxG2


When we get to Holder and setup camp. We will break off to groups. One group will go to Redrock and other will ride to through citrus.


Redrock is for more 4x4
If you have a 4x2 you will need help up some of the hills
This place is very time consuming and needs spotters.
It's like a mini Hardrock


Citrus will be trail rides. I'll also give directions to the caves which is pretty cool. We will not being doing caves if your doing Redrock.
This is a good article abou the caves

We will wake up and head out around 10


We will head south and head to Croom for are final leg of the Expedition

there's no group ferry crossing this year


Reasons I did this
1. it took 2 hours to get 5 FJs across the ferry
2. they were talking about being closed around the time of
the ride


your more than welcome. to come across on the ferry and then meet up with everyone. the ferry opens at 7am. we will not be heading out until 9am. Like said before they might be under construction. I keep an eye out on any new info


Fort Gates Ferry
229 Fort Gates Ferry Rd
Crescent City, FL 32112

this is the route to take when you cross the ferry. then head to rodman dam

Hi gator I'm a new member in Ocsla. Would like to participate in the Rodman Dam ride on Friday but just checking to make sure I'm welcome. If you have a club I'm interested in that also. If I understand correctly you will be meeting at the Rodman campground at 8 and heading out around 9. CB channel 5 will be used. If I'm welcome and have facts right let me know! Thanks
