Old Cutler Road

Does anyone know just how muck clearance we have driving down Old Cutler. Partuculary from the south to Matheson and that stretch right around Fairchild tropical garden.

I ask because I just had a bunch of trailer work done and Im now about 8 inches taller than I was and I didn't have a lot of room to spare. At least I didn't feel like I did.

Im very nervous about going to that ramp right now.

    Find someone that has a good range finder and go there and measure the distance from your eyes to the lowest tree limbs you can see. then add your eye height to the range finder reading. Don' get hit by a car. LOL  I have a very accurate range finder that would do the job.

    County buses and semi's keep the trees trimmed back. Unless you have a tower should be no problem.

    WELL I made it. I'm not too tall afterall but that was scary going under one particular tree heading back Southbound.

    I want to encourage you to talk to the County Park that you use. Matheson Park.
    Old cutler is a county road.
    Email them see what they say.
    Plus I bet there are tons of potholes in the ramp area.
    Throw that in.
    That's what I do.
