Redbird scoop please!

Hi, can someone please tell me about Redbird? Enough for a couple days of wheelin? What's there to see there? From pics and vids and other threads it looks like a combo of trails, hills, rock and mud. How big is the park? Thanks so much!!!!!!

I only took one long trail (dog was overheating) but I got the impression you could do the majority of the trails in one solid day. I think there's enough to explore to make two days of it, and Interlake SRA is only an hour and a half away if not.

Cool, thanks!! As it's planned it looks like Day 1 will be a half day and a full day on Day 2.

Quick review in case anyone else comes looking for info....

Absolutely beautiful park with great trails and well marked. Not perfect, but hard pressed to get lost.

My biggest advice is go when it's dry. We did and had 2 solid days of wheelin' by varying difficulty.

Trail 4 is beast but totally fun and worth it. Plan on a half day doing that trail.

Lots of ridgeline runs and many have severe off camber parts. Others have trees in the middle. Those will be somewhere between risky and lethal to 4dr JK's.

We all can't wait to go back.

Glad to hear you had fun. I forgot the most important part: make sure you bring a barmaid next time. Redbird encourages having one!

heading out here on labor day weekend from chicago land.. look forward to this place every year.

it seems like in the past you could do night runs on labor day weekend, anyone know if that is still the case or not?

they have redone their trails and the blue trails have a lot of large gravel "rock" in spots and it's almost like driving in your yard or something but still have a few semi-difficult spots. Trail 4 and 24 are very difficult and this past weekend we had several people get some damage to their jeeps.

so pretty much stay out of 4 and 24 with the jeeps that have very little mods...

If i recall 4 was one of the trails we hit last year. I do not recall anything too challenging that weekend. hopefully we all make it out alive this time around. This is one of my favorite parks to visit each year and look forward to it.

anyone else have any input on what trails to hit and or if wheeling at night is something that is allowed on labor day weekend, or was that a thing of the past?

Last weekend at Redbird we had a guy come back with some damage off of trail 4 so be safe. Now it is labeled as an extreme trail.
