Up in Swift County Minnesota, the Department of Natural Resources has set aside land with 10 miles of ORV trails specifically for off-road vehicles. The Appleton Area Recreational OHV Park is situated on 330 acres of mostly old rail road line with sand dunes, hill climbs, and rock crawls. However the park is split in two sections, one side is ATV’s and dirt bikes only with the other portion for full-size vehicles. An interesting obstacle at the Appleton 4×4 park that I haven’t seen else where, is “stair steps.” A stair step is a long obstacle on a hill with Continue Reading → Appleton Area Recreational OHV Park

Illinois’ only true Off-Road park for full size vehicles has some of the most unique wheeling that you will ever encounter. Nothing like the rocks in California, where traction is no problem on the granite. The mud at Cliff’s Insane Terrain Park is something of it’s own, adding another level to difficultly to off-roading… that most haven’t experienced. The hills are truly eroding underneath your feet as that vehicle works it’s heart out trying to climb up hills.

Tip Toe Behind the Rocks

Tip Toe Behind the Rocks in Moab is one of the easier trails, but what it lacks in difficultly is made up with beautiful and scenic views. I drove the trail after few days of running the harder trails because we want an easy day were we focus on the beauty that the desert has to offer. Tip Toe is an off shoot of the much harder trail, Behind the Rocks and can be easily driven in any high clearance 4 wheel drive vehicle. At the end of this trail is Balcony Arch, Picture Frame Arch, and Pritchett Arch which is Continue Reading → Tip Toe Behind the Rocks

Steel Bender

Originally a wagon trail, Steel Bender leads you through 20 miles of scenic views of Mill Creek, Moab, and the La Sal Mountains. This trail can prove to be very difficult in a stock vehicle which is why I have given Steel Bender a rating of Difficult. I do not recommend running this trail alone, and spotting is a must on some of the obstacles. The most memorable obstacle for me was “The Wall,” which is this vertical wall that you must drop down. For some reason I decided to take the seeming more difficult off camber section to the Continue Reading → Steel Bender

Rubicon Trail

Of all the trails in the world, The Rubicon Trail is the one and the only trail to top them all.

So popular is this place, auto manufacturers regularly use this trail as the gauge to test their new vehicles on. The trail technically begins in Wentworth Springs, but the typical 4×4 enthusiast is looking to start the trail at Loon Lake. The first obstacle encountered is Walker Hill which is a climb up a Continue Reading → Rubicon Trail
