Hello. Me and two of my buddies are riding up To boyette on Tuesday may 11th. Is anyone planning on riding that wouldn't mind a few followeres? Were new to the trail and don't want to get lost all day! We've heard that we shouldn't try it alone. We are intermediate riders but have ridden all of alafia with no problems. If anyones  plannning on going Tuesday or know anyone going please let me know. We live about 2.5 hours away so probably won't be there till 11ish. And I promise well try to keep up! Thanks. Email. Mpyatt89@live.com or 239 462 7529

Be sure to download a map from the maps section and orientate yourself.  Saw a couple guys out there yesterday huff'n puff'n trying to find their way around.  If only they had had a map.  ;-)

I got lost out there with a couple gassed out friends trying to find the quick way back by the power lines a couple weeks back for 1/2 hour. The map saved me. I thought I knew Boyette very well.  ::)

A general purpose tip if you get turned around. You can see the radio towers from many places in the park. They point back to the general direction of the exit.

Many hardcore guys use GPS bike computers

Most people carry the GPS more for data logging than navigating though. I carry mine just to log miles and give me some info to dork out to later on. I haven't used it for navigation at Boyette in over a year.

Now I had to use it at Croom once after taking some extra long detours checking out the enduro trails that lead off to the south. There are some pretty nice features to the west of the dirt bike/ATV area.
