i live in des moines and i wanna go off-roadin but i cant really find any good spots where i can legally do it at...any spots anyone can think of?
If you join cedar valley jeep owners or iowa jeep club you can get access to the farm, I've been there a few times, it's a pretty awesome place.There are a few places in Iowa. There is one guy that built a huge offroad park on some land he ownes out in St Mary/Martensdale. It's gated off unless you are with him though. I see him post up on Facebook all the time and it looks like they hit the trail at least once a week if not more.
Another place is called "The Farm" out past Pella. It's supposed to be a really good sized offroad park built there as well. It's for members of the Jeep Out Club of Central Iowa but anyone can join.
Also coming is up the Iowa Jeep Show 4x4 Event in Nevada. 2 Day event that includes some offroad courses and other events. That is the end of September (20'th and 21'st)
I have not gone to any 3 of these places before myself so I do not know the quality of them but I have heard all 3 are great.
