I live in Massillon. Last night I made my own in several park areas and was airborne quite a bit but tons of fun!

Legal? you have southington offroad up north. And i think Dover Dirt Trails has a monthly shindig. Not sure. Then theres yankee lake in the summer. I've only ever been out to yankee though..

Also, high from canton also!

Spc there are a few 4 wheeler trails down in bolivor area if you just looking to get muddy. Not great ones by any means for a jeep but mud fun.

Feel lucky they are within an hour of you. The closest decent place from me (Cincinnati) is Slade, Kentucky. Which is about 2.5 hours away with no traffic.

Sorry i didnt see your reply sooner, hi! lol yeah i heard about dover dirt closing, i think i'll try southington this spring if God smiles on us. he seems to think ohio doesnt need much sun so if its a shade near 50 degrees and a lick of sun i'll be out there lol bolivar isnt far from me so i may see if any of my buddies know where you guys are talking about and try it thanks!

nothing wrong with tight spaces, i like it tight! lol btw has anyone checked out the area near akron/canton airport? there are mud holes and dirt bike/quad trails around there just wide enough to squeeze a 2 door into. caution though had a guy back there tell me he got swallowed up by a mudhole in a tj with 1 tons and 42's.....

I've been back in there. i got swallowed up in one hole pretty good.

They started dumping piles in front of the trail entrances. I took that as a sign to find other places to play. It was ok back there, couple little hills that you could get in trouble on if you didn't scout them first.

I've actually found more places down in around canton/E canton to play in honestly. Theres a lot of little four wheeler trails to mess around on.
