Jacksonville/Sherwood area

Just wondering if there were any of you around this area, I'm stationed on the base here for a little while and was looking for some trails for a weekend getaway, or either just a nice pretty ride around some state parks. My Jeep is my daily driver so I don't wanna be too rough on her, (yet, lol) but some good lil trails would be nice to find. Best I've found so far seems to be the ORV park in Hot Springs, but it's about a half a tank away from here... lol. What all does that park consist of?

Also... can anyone recommend a good trustworthy 4x4 shop around the area, even in Little Rock to do a lil work for me if I ever need it? (ie: bigger lift, etc). I would appreciate the heads up before I took my Jeep to a shady joint.

Thanks!

i live just up the road in cabot, just moved down here from conway a few months ago so i don't know of much in the area... we gather up a few times a year with everybody from www.mudstruck.com to go riding but as for shops around the area... from what i know 4x4 offroad outfitters down by McCain Mall is a good place to give a call when you need something. He is part of the Arkansas Crawlers and deals mostly in jeep stuff

I'm in Jacksonville as well. There's also Cabot tire and off road. X2 on the 4x4 outfitters. Mines a dd too. I want to play but not tear it up yet as we'll. I know of a little place in Sherwood to play in mud. It's by where they r building some houses but its not bad.

Just to haul my Polaris rzr to play with. Only 8k miles. Still too new for dents n scratches. Muddying is fun just not the cleanup. Not any good car washes around to clean them Without getting griped at.

Please come out and join up with us, and spread the word to other Jeep owners and lets see what we can get into next!
We will be getting ready for our first crawl together coming in January in Hot Springs at Superlift Off Road Park.

Hope you can make it out! We should have a good group there tomorrow! Will be going over a few things, probably playing in the ditch out front, but mostly gearing up for the first ride on the 19th.

I live about 30 miles south, but I am in Sherwood a lot. My mother in law lives there just off hwy 107. 4x4 offroad outfitters is a great 4x4 shop. Superlift is a good place, there is no reason to tear your Jeep up there, they have trails for everyone.

Could someone give me the address to the meet in the morning? I'm pulling up two different Landers in Little Rock, one is on South University, and then other is a Alcoa Road address in Benton. I'm gonna guess it's the University address? Thanks!

I wish I was down that way, there aren't very many places up in the Northeast. There need to be some meets up this way too.

Be a while before I make it back, spending too much money on the house to do much of anything else right now.

SL in hot springs is great. I dont do mud, last time i did it cost me over 600.00 to fix. SL been there a bunch no breaks or damage. There is a lot of different trail from easy to very hard. Look at the central AR meet up thread. Wavey
