Never been.

Is it the Rockdale just east of Dallas around Sulphur Springs off of 30?

...or is it the Rockdale that is north-east of Taylor off of 79?

Tire trax is a about about 100 maybe 200 acres. Mostly dirt trails/MUD, a couple of small dirt climbs. There is a creek bed that I haven't gone through. My friend with his suzuki goes through, it is pretty tight. The owner is really nice. I think it is about 10 to 15 dollars to wheel. If you are close to Rockdale I would check it out, but I wouldn't recommend traveling to wheel the place.

From the pics, it looks like a lot of mud and not much else. May be a cool place to wheel- dunno. I would like to see more challenging stuff or at least some hill climbs, etc. I wish I knew how much acreage and trails they have.

If you guys want a really fun place to wheel, then I REALLY think you would get a kick out of Rusty's here in Bastrop......about 750 acres of woods, steep hill climbs, off-camber, creek-beds, etc. We don't need many Jeeps to be able to go out there, and I know I could get at least 2 or 3 guys here to go with.

If you are interested in a run/ meet & greet out there, just let me know, and we'll get something together. We just need some dry weather for a couple weeks prior, so that it's not too muddy.

sounds like fun. ever been to the brazos valley offroad ranch? its pretty cool but they run the place weird. no open wheeling only schedualed events. lots of hill climbs and cool wash outs. no mud, the place shuts down when it rains.

You can also rent the whole place out for$200 per 24hrs.
Might be worth it if we could get a meet and greet together out there.
bunch of people chip in it wouldn't be too expensive.

I know of Brazos, but haven't been there yet. Rusty's is kind of the same way- when it rains or has been raining, then he won't open, but he has a lot of livestock there and doesn't want the pastures that lead to the trails to turn into a mud-pit

That's what I was told also, so never made the journey out there.

BVORR is ok for one run, maybe 2. But then after twice it is just annoying. It is built on an old gravel pit. So all it really has is a lot of steep hill climbs. There is some wooded area, but the trails thru are not all that great.

Just my opinion... I am not a fan of BVORR

Its nothing awsome but for around here its the best the brazos valley has to offer and its like $5-10 to wheel. the only other places are mud parks and i'm not big on mud. good for mild wheelin.

It's not bad Stevo, especially when you have friends willing to try stupid shit!
