So jealous. Too many upright conservatives around here worrying about us damaging the environment. I got cussed out my some yuppie driving a prius when I was getting gas a couple weeks back about my Jeep being "a gas guzzling planet killer". I told him to shut his f...ing mouth before I drove over his little toy car.

Yes, nothing at starved rock. That area is protected as well due to wildlife, mainly eagles. cliffs is pretty good and better when there is a few others to trail thru. There are other places but mostly private land and you either need to know the owners or someone with access and approval to use. There are always a few rotten apples that ruin it for the respectable jeepers.

Cliffs is open during the week but they will tell you if you go through the trail and get stuck, you might be out there for awhile, a long while. I've been out there during the week a couple of times last year and Corban (Owner) has let me thru solo... still cost me $20 but well worth it when I'm testing out new installs or just burning time.

I think a jeep in stock form could handle quite a bit of cliffs, just be smart. That place is a lot of fun.

Most of time you'll have atleast 10-15 rigs running around there just depending on the day and weather
