I've been told by Brett Bush who I have always assumed is in charge of the forest plan that a loop from the north trail system to the south is in the plans.....not just one trail but a loop.....I was told this is maybe 2 years away....getting across highway 40 is something that will require some funding for a bridge,culvert,light or some other means to get to the other side..not to mention what to do at other paved roads...safety you know.....I've been told by some of the other rangers that the basic trail has been cut and/or being worked on ...it's supposed to go by the 88 store so you can get gas if necessary....I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for this to happen though

I spoke with the Main man at the Devision of Forestry last trip there. He is the leader of the whole project. He says its a sure thing, that they have already started and have the Grooming equipment already purchased. He also said its a 2 Directional Marked trail with a speed limit, I believe he said 30mph. He gave me a map ill see if I can find it. I know it got wet in the front so called dry storage box of my sportsman.

Well the reason I ask, is because there was an artical in our news press today in Fort myers (fort myers is like 5 hours away) about a new 117 mile trail that was opening up JULY 1st 2008 and I remember a ranger telling us last novermber when we were there that there would eventually be a trail that would go from Lake delancy to big scrub. I did not read the artical myself a buddy called me up and told some bits and pieces of it.
Thanks

The guy told me the exact same thing. July.
He also said that big scrub and all trails that are currently open around it will be closed.

It would take all day to go from delancey to big scrub at 30 mph.

Yeah, supposedly the trail will go from rodman to big scrub with a few more camp sites available. Also might be a lake or two along the trails to stop and cool off in.

Would be nice if they also connected the Wandering Wiregrass trail as well.  Any plans for this?  It's not that far from Scrub.  Also would be almost a necessity to be able to stop by the 88 Store.  My V-Force 700 can only go a little over 30 miles on a tank of gas...
