IrishRed I am about halfway between Houston and Galveston. The only park I know of, which I didn't see listed in this posting or on the google maps link is Down South Offroad in Crosby, TX. If anyone knows of anything else close please share! Also, I saw listings for pelican island and in Spring, both of which are closed to the public now.

Doomsday It's great to see a thread with some good info. I've been to Bridgeport and had a blast!

Shyer Thanks Kash that will be very useful

kash Sorry to bump an old thread.
But i've scoured this thread and a few others for some trails.
Thought i'd make a publicly editable Sheet for TX

Its still a work in progress, If you guys know more places please add them in the list, there are a bunch that still need population and coordinate corrections.

Its a start, Hope you guys like it!!

Awesome! If you could shoot me a pm about it when you finish that would be great. I'm glad someone is taking the initiative to map this stuff out. It really helps

Not that I have ever heard of.

xcraftllc I know this is an old thread, but I wanted to add what I've been working on to it. It's not complete yet but it gives you an idea of what's nearby. I'm from Nevada myself, so it was a huge disappointment to see that there are so few areas in Texas to go offroad.

Is there really full size offroading at Angelina National Forest?

^^^ I agree. It's an old stone quarry, I believe and the terrain changes every time we go out there. No camping areas yet, but it's a good place for a day trip for those in the DFW area.

Odhinn Rumor around here says someone bought some land near Old Katemcy, and is planning on setting up a new version of the old area. Lets hope it is more than just a rumor.

You seem to have made up your mind, but if you still have any doubts, be certain about it. This is from the paper today.

Its latest report, based on risk levels as of the first quarter, estimates just a 6 percent chance that home prices in Fort Worth-Arlington may fall through early 2011.

Still, that’s up from 2.5 percent in the fourth quarter of 2008.

In Dallas-Plano-Irving there is a 4 percent risk that prices may fall, also up from 2.5 percent in the fourth quarter of 2008.

Several metropolitan areas in California, Florida, Nevada and Arizona will see close to a 100 percent chance that prices will drop in the next two years, the report says.

You, on the other hand, have a few more spots close to you although I'm not sure how much real rock crawling there is. You're also fairly close to Arkansas which has the Superlift park.

Thanks again for all the info guys. SHould be very helpful to others looking for spots to wheel. Sucks about Katemcy!!!

ChrisTX We're working on getting Bridgeport open sometime this year. It's only 350~ acres, but it's mean enough to tear up the biggest of them, and will give you enough to do to fill up a full day. It's a great day trip place, and not more than an hour from just about anywhere in the metroplex.

Gilmer, TX (Barnwell Mountain) is about 2-2.5 hours from the metroplex. It's 1800 acres and has just about everything. It's a state park.

Rock Creek is a private place that is a few hundred acres. It isn't bad. Maybe 1-1.5 hours away from the metroplex. You just call ahead and tell the guy you're coming.

Clayton is one of the rougher spots in Oklahoma and is a few hours drive.

Hot Springs, AR is a few hours drive and is the Superlift park.

There is the 4B Farm in DeLeon that is a private ranch. They usually only have a handful of trips a year. It never fails that 50% of the people that sign up break before the first day is over.

Marble Falls is down south. A few hours away, but almost 2,000 acres, from what I understand (never been there, but friends have).

Palo Duro Canyon has a few places if you are willing to drive a little further to the pahnandle.

If you want to go to the beach, you can go to the Padre Island seashore and drive the entire 55 miles of deserted beach.

There is another place near Bryan, TX, but I don't remember the name. I'm sure I can find out if you want to know.

There is another place opening in far south Texas, the Escondido Draw. It's another state park, but won't be open for another couple years.

Katemcy is closing. They lost their lease.

Some guys are working on cleaning up K-trail in Oklahoma, and getting everything mapped out up there.

That's all I can think of off the top of my head that's around this area.

ygohome i see that clayton OK is about 4 hrs drive from Dallas and is pretty good stuff. I'm asking the folks over at another texas jeep website about their favorite spots "close to" dallas. Seems most people drive for a day to get somewhere good then wheel a few days and drive back. I'll need a truck and trailer sooner than later for sure. lol. breaking down on trails 30 minutes from the home here in Phx is one thing... breaking down 4 hrs from home could be very bad without a trailer. I am seeing some good stuff though but most require a day of driving.

I'm basically just testing the waters, so to speak, about moving to texas. Not certain I'll make that move... I feel like I've just gotten settled here in AZ after 10 yrs and it's home. but I lived in Dallas for 12 yrs and that was beforer I got into rock crawling. Texas is a beautiful state/country

There are several good spots but I don't think anything here will be quite like AZ. The TX Hill Country has a few good spots. That's the central parts of TX and the park near Ozona (Satans Playground) has pretty good rock crawling.

Check the link and look at the websites. I'm sure Texas has something that will satisfy.

Thanks Scout

JeepersdoitDeeper If your looking for near to D/FW, try BMRA(Gilmer) and Bridgeport is close to opening I believe. TWR in Nacona is long gone, and Katemsy Rocks os closing down as well.
05-14-2009 02:01 PM
