Mountain Home Area Trails
 
I've seen posts from years earlier looking for people & places in the Mountain Home area to wheel. So thought i'd open it up again, see what we have for 2012.
How bout it?
Anyone looking for places to wheel? anyone have land to play on for small groups?
Maybe we can come up with an inter-county (Baxter) trail system ( just a dream probably)
I've recently purchased a small chunk of land in Baxter county and have been cutting trails for approx 8 months. Most are tight cornered, and have small branches to be trimmed however, some you could drive a semi down....still need alot of work. So far it's good for about a 1/2 day or so of fun.
Let me know what kind of interest is out there in our area:dance:.......

I can't remember which roads it is, but there is a back way from dover to branson missouri using logging roads and 4x4 trails. I think it takes about 4-5 hours instead of the 3 hours by highway 7. I'll get an old truckers map and try to figure it out if anybody wants to hit it up sometime.

Wow! It really is Dead in our area isn't it?:banghead:

Come down to central AR and ride with us on the 12th

Rob you ain't kiddin!!! Russellville is a college town (with 1 bar), a retirement community and has the only nuke plant in the state. No wonder everyone here is a pot head or cooking meth:(

That is something I will have to do someday. Currently I live in the Chicago area and spend a long weekend every month in Mountain Home working on my little playground.

Maybe I can talk some of you into coming up and helping cut fresh trails and what not. I currently have 160 acres with a little bit of everything (rocks, creeks, steep hills, mud & about 8 miles of trails from easy to moderate). Some different insights would be fun for this project too.

Have to see what we can do..Little different kind of meet & greet (chain saws in hand)... eh?

Send me a message next time your down. I live in Fulton county and have a chainsaw. Ive been looking for some local stuff to wheel on. I would be happy to help..

Reckless Robb 01-14-2012 07:53 AM

Cool!!
Will do on the messages.......
Come summer I'll be ready to haul my XJ down to " Central Arkansas" for some play time. It's definitely on my "To Do" list. I do need to finish some bullet-proofing though.
Haven't looked yet but where is Fulton Co. in relationship to Baxter?

1974cjguy 01-14-2012 11:09 AM

Fulton is right next door to Baxter. Im over there almost every weekend. In Mtn.Home.

ryanplindsey 03-20-2012 01:14 PM

Let me know when you want to do something I am down for helping. I live in conway but my wifes family (from chicago) now live there so its no big deal for us to hop in and come up.

I see lots of Jeeps around Mountain Home. I wave at all I see! I wish the Jeep community was closer in this area. I wonder how many hit this site.

Reckless Robb 04-01-2012 10:36 PM

I agree. I see alot of Jeeps in Mountain Home also, However .....the ones I've ran into are mostly garage trophys ( No Dirt allowed).

Prestn 05-06-2012 01:10 PM

I hear you have made a lot of progress. I don't mind getting a little dirty!

Reckless Robb 06-14-2012 12:32 PM

Prestn 06-15-2012 03:49 AM

I am working the 4th-7th 8am-6pm

Reckless Robb 06-15-2012 07:31 AM

Cool I plan on cutting a trail or two from the 1st to the 3rd....will let you know details before then.

1974cjguy 06-15-2012 03:34 PM

darn it I have to work. Let me know when you are coming down next.

Reckless Robb 06-15-2012 07:20 PM

May stretch the time out from the 30th to the 6th of July.....Love to get a couple jeeps out for an afternoon/evening or two.

1974cjguy 06-16-2012 11:11 AM

I can do the 5th or 6th and maybe the 30th. Just let me know. If you can do those dates I will be there. I can bring my saw if you want to cut a new trail. I need a wheeling fix. lol

Reckless Robb 06-16-2012 11:22 AM

You got it......Im a about 75% finished on my nearly 5 mile loop around the fence line of the property. A little chain saw help and some different peoples views would be a great addition to this project!

Prestn 06-24-2012 09:26 AM

I about 90% sure I can make it over on the 1st!!! It will be after lunch though. :)

Prestn 06-27-2012 08:40 PM

Reckless Robb 06-28-2012 05:38 AM

Reckless Robb 08-29-2012 12:07 AM
