So since the theme of the month has been to encourage wheeling, and I had the day off and the passport office is pissing me off I decided to put a complete list of places to wheel.

Maybe we can make this a sticky somewhere...if there is already a list like this then a MOD can delete this thread...i couldn't easily find one though.

Texas Offroad Parks

If somone knows a better way then doing it the way I did it be my guest...i figured i'd break the ice...

That is a great idea you have there.
Maybe we can have all of TTORA do something similar on Googlemaps.

This list of sanctioned/legal wheeling areas excludes National Parks, National Forests and National Grasslands, with (with a couple of exceptions below) are not OHV friendly:

Big Bend National Park (Terlingua) is well known for scenic desert-style expedition trips. There is a link to a recent TLCA trip here and information on the park here

Palo Duro Canyon is more rugged and adventuresome. Palo Duro has two scheduled runs per year: Jeep Jamboree in May and Jeep Challenge in September. If you enjoy wheeling and aren't xenophobic, it is a great wheeling. Contact Ann Christian of the Figure 3 Ranch at 806-944-5562 to set up a group run. Some info here & an article here

Here's another link to a huge list of mostly out-of-the-way places, I can't vouch for it being updated or accurate though: 4x4trails.net

Post up your thoughts and help us keep this up-to-date, I'll move it to a separate folder and stick it when you are done. :)

Thanks for this list. Being in Arkansas, I'm close enough to actually wheel some of these awesome places.

I really liked your Google Maps idea, so I stole it and started one for the AR TTORA chapter :)

Arkansas Wheeling Places

Anyone have any more?

Spring creek has added a rock crawling area made up of shotcrete. The course has been used by werock and some local rock crawling competitions. there are also loose rock courses, lots of dry washes, ravines, hills and trails. There are plenty of mud holes if that's your cup of tea. Check out www.springcreekoffroad.com for park info.
