Where to Go For an ATV Day Out
It’s all very well having an ATV, but you need to have somewhere fun to go. With its over-land capabilities, it is a waste to simply drive it around a backyard or even on regular roads. Bearing that in mind, here are a few top trails that can make that weekend just a little bit more exciting.
Brock Creek Trails, Arkansas
Comprising a 42-mile set of trails, this track is a winding one with a couple of large loops and multiple smaller connecting ones. Beware when travelling along here, as it is not exclusively for use by ATVs and you can come across hikers, dirt or mountain bikes and even horse riders along the way. Keep an eye out and be respectful. There are also areas for those who prefer a slower-paced journey, and this way will take you through low forests and a few river crossings as well. With a range of trails, it caters to both the novice and the experienced rider with rough and smooth trails on offer. For those who wish to spend some time exploring here, there is also a campground available for overnight stays.
Hanging Rock, Ohio
Ohio’s Hanging Rock in Wayne National Forest is a 5000-acre setting with over 24 miles of trails for ATV usage. As with Brock Creek, riders need to pay attention to the fact that they will not be alone here and will be sharing trails with horse riders and bikes. There are some very challenging steeper inclines on these trails, so adventurous riders will have a lot going for them. A stunning area as a whole, there are ponds, bridges, rocks and trees covering the whole area, making this outing a very pleasant and scenic one.
Coral Pink Sand Dunes, Utah
Sand dunes are always fun to visit and, with 1200 acres of them, you’re sure to find the perfect spot. This is considered one of the top destinations for ATV-ers as it has a wide range of options from soft gentle slopes for beginners to steep hard-core trails for those who are more advanced.
Whatever you choose, make sure that you are always insured on these outings!
