It's not all that old and from what I've been told the guy that built it would like to keep it on the DL.

Definately a cool place, wish they would open it up to airboats so we could ride there all of the time, but we will probably never see that happen. It was still great to see a small portion of it this past weekend, a very rare opportinity.

Don’t know the place, nothing about it. You say it’s been closed to AB for 30 years but that sure looked like an AB trail. Looks like somebody runs it regularly. Poachers? Authorities? Am I just seeing things?
Airboating is like marriage: There are unlimited ways a person can be right, and somehow still be wrong at the same time!!

Kyle, whats the story behind the ride? You sneak in or was you on a mission? Looks like a marked trail.

The US Fish and Wildlife Authorities and their subcontactors use the trails. They contract out the treament of the exotic vegetation, which basically goes on year around. Quite a few deer were seen on our trip Saturday. It's a shame for us, it's so close to home, but off limits to airboats. In fact, as I type this reply from work, I'm sitting less than a mile from the entrance.

Sold it to a friend that never had a airboat, it's a very safe boat to learn on. He is having a great time with it!!
