Isn't there any place out by Saylorville? or some of the quarries?

There is no legal place in Iowa for full-size 4x4s. There are several ATV parks but that does us no good. 600 acres out by Iowa City was open until the ATV groups convinced the DNR Jeeps are the devil and now it's closed to us. There is only private-owned land by some of the 4x4 clubs in Iowa unless you know of a person with their own land. The clubs in Iowa have started to try and get an OHV park but that takes alot of time and money so it will be a while. One club, Make It Or Break It(miobi.org) has "open-wheeling" events a couple of times a year so check out their site to see when that is. I believe the next open run is Memorial Day. The Jeep club,JOCCI(jocci.com), has some private land also that is fun to ride on but like everything you need to be a member. Other than those options, you need to go out of state. You should check out those two clubs and see what you think.

I have quite a bit of land and have entertained the idea of a Jeep trail system, but the "tear it up" mentality is what concerns me. I love a good mud bog and slop around, but in the end, I have to clean it up and prevent erosion. I have worked hard to restore prairies, wetlands and forests, so I am very careful. I am still giving it thought....

Hey Iowa guys. Anybody on the east side of the state? I am part of a group getting started. Mississippi Valley Jeepers. We get together on a regular basis for trail runs.

I'm from the QC area. Where do you do your trail runs?

There is a Class B Road dirt road a couple miles north of Andrew, Iowa. Couple miles long follows a small ravine stream.

I live around the quad city's. Im interested in your club. Were do you do your trail runs??

I live in Maquoketa Iowa. I'm interested in your Club Firehawk. I know of a few LVL B and C roads within 40 miles of my house. Prolly around 10. And My parents have a Small amount of woods that I have free rain over. Behind my dads shop there is a small section of Valley to a narrow creek that I've road quads and dirt bikes threw for years. It would take some cleaning up.. But I would welcome anyone that wants to make some short trails.
