East Texas Trails

Wondering if anyone knows of lengthy, moderately challenging trails in east Texas. Preferrably 50+ miles long and good areas to camp. Trails in southern Oklahoma and west Louisiana would also suffice.

I don't know of anything like what you are taking about. Most of the land is private owned so its hard to find large stretches of government land that you can travel very far on before you come out on a highway. We do the biggest part of our wheeling in off road parks.
Maybe someone will chime in and teach us both something?

I'm in Dallas and it has lots of low-speed trails, high and low elevations, not really any twists though - mostly straight-aways... oh wait, those are the highways and overpasses.

I hear camping in your Jeep is usually frowned upon or dangerous in city limits...

Yeah, cuz of the private land thing, hard to find good trails unless you're in W TX area.

Best bet's gonna be state and natl parks – IIRC, Barnwell Mountain is in your area. Plenty of trails there, last I heard. Some links:

Texas 4-Wheeling Trails and Maps - Where to Drive 4x4 Trucks and 4WD SUVs Off Road

Jeep Trails in Texas | Travel Tips - USAToday.com

Another good way to find trails is hook up with a local Jeep or 4x4 club. Some of them should even have use of some trails on private land. Don't know about 50+ milers, but...

When I lived in Texas we would go to Barnwell "Mountain". Barnwell Mountain Recreation Area

It doesn't have a lot of really long trails but it has a lot of trails all over the hill. It has camping, both primitive and luxury. There's a lot of trails from mild to moderate with a few serious hill climbs.

I never made it up there but there's some good trails in Clayton, OK: Wheeling In Clayton, Oklahoma - Jp Magazine

BTW, your gear ratio calculator rocks. I've linked many a Jeeper to that bad boy...
