The annual 60 day ORV closure will be lifted as of Friday, July 31. All areas of the preserve that allow for off-road vehicle use will be accessible via marked designated trails, this includes airboat access into Zone 4.
The Recreational Off-Road Vehicle Management Plan calls for a 60-day seasonal closure to allow a period free from resource pressures related to ORV use. The ORV closure within Big Cypress National Preserve was first instituted in 2002.
For information on ORV access and permitting questions contact the ORV Office at 239-695-1205.
