“A beautiful tour of the relatively under-explored eastern base of the Floridas!”— Christopher Bare
Turn right onto the paved road (143) and follow it until it becomes Stirrup Road. Continue on this road until meeting up with Florida Road. Turn right and continue until reaching the Spring Canyon Junction. Continue straight onto the dirt road (Gap Road).
From here, you'll follow Gap Road until you reach three small peaks that are just east of the Florida Mountains proper. This make for an easily identifiable landmark and good turn around point; however, there are many side roads that lead to old mine ruins that can be explored if you want to add additional time and adventure to your experience.
Gap Road will become more technical and will narrow the further back you travel; however, it remains mainly doubletrack and while parts of it are only accessible to a higher clearance vehicle, a mountain biker with reasonable skills and endurance should have little difficulty completing this ride.
Be respectful of the road and watch out for cattle. You'll pass through Tres Lomitas Ranch during this ride, and folks are typically friendly toward mountain bikers and it is best to keep things that way.
