Where are some good areas to go riding at? I want to be within a 3 hour drive of Tampa. I'm thinking somewhere in central Florida. Looking for some rural trails to ride on. Also, what are the laws in Florida regarding ATV? Are you only allowed to ride on certain trails or can you ride on any trails? Also what are the licensing requirements on ATVs in Florida?

Look at the Croom Lake Recreational Area, just East of Brooksville in Hernando County.

I used to visit Croom once a year, trailered ATV's in from Chicago. If you visit during the week when school is in session you'll probably have the entire 2600 acres to yourself. They didn't ask for any paperwork, proof of ownership or insurance. It's fairly pricey b/c you have to buy a yearly pass and it's only good for 1 vehicle.

There are all kinds of riding experiences to be had, a big open area if you're into jumping (although it can flood during the rainy season), trails to explore (kinda annoying as they're whooped out to keep speeds down), and several steep/deep channeled trails around the gulch area (my personal favorite, where you can have fun even at walking speeds). Also, there are many many areas where you and your buddies can just lay out your own little track and play a little cat and mouse.

Here's a review/pics of the place:
