Southington Off-Road

Has anyone been here? Camped here? Any stories to share?

I've never done any off-road driving at all. Is this a good place to start? I don't wanna end up as a youtube video with 'dumba**' in the title.

A great place to start. If you're running a stock JKU I'd probably stay out of the woods. But there are lots of trails on the upper and lower rim that you will have no problems with. It'll be a great first time experience and there is never a shortage of great jeepers and other off-road enthusiasts who are willing to help

I've only been to SOR once but I'll be headed back soon, There were plenty of trails I was able to traverse in a stock suspended TJ with 29" tires.

I wandered off into the woods unintentionally and nearly got in over my head a couple times but for the most part I was able to power through most of the mud holes and return t tell the tale.

It's in Garrettsville. Roughly between Akron and Youngstown. Think it was $20-30 for the day pass. Place is run well, good community. All sorts of terrain

Day pass is $25 for driver and $5 for each passenger, kids under, I think, 12, are free.

Weekend pass is $40 for the driver, can't remember the weekend price for passengers.

Nope there are no requirements to go. It is really a great family friendly place that has trils for stock vehicles and places that challenge the best rigs. I'm gonna be out there Saturday the 7 th hope to see you on the trails. Joey

All vehicles must be 4x4, carry a full spare and technically it's supposed to be insured, but they don't check. Never a bad idea to bring tow straps

There are usually 2 groups there every month NEO4x4 and JKFreaks. They will help show you around the property so you don't get into trouble. The staff is very helpful as well. I started going there before it was called Jeep Skool and SOR. There is plenty of terrain for everyone.

Bring your fishing poles as well. There is a nice quarry by the owners house.

I won't be there this month. I'm in the middle of another XJ build that needs to be done by the end of this month.

Did I read you were in Amherst? That's were I am. Pm me if you wanna stop over. Always repairing or building a Jeep for someone. Also my garage fridge is always stocked.
