I heard about this one when it opened, but haven't seen anyone talking about it yet.

I didn't have a jeep while I lived in Chicago, so I'm afraid I don't know of much there.

Not sure exactly where you're located in the Chi-town area but as alt_phil mentioned there is The Cliffs Insane Terrain. It's a fun park that offers a regular trails, hill climbs, ravines and a mud like substance we like to refer to as Illinois Snot. The park has you covered if you want a little or a lot of challenge. Depending on if you're interested in checking us out, my club does run's at both The Badlands and The Cliffs. Something to think about. If you want, come check us out at www.gljt.org .

Sure my rig has seen the trail, but I wheel it like a soccer mom looking for a parking spot at Nordstroms.

I have been to both. The badlands is about four hours further there/back but so worth it. The cliffs are fun but it's all sloppy ass mudd and hills. No rocks to climb. The badlands is cheaper to get into and alot bigger. Iv had some scary times at the cliffs almost rolled my old heep a few times out there lol. Idk if my rubi will ever see the cliffs. The mudd at the cliffs is a bitch to clean and smells like ass haha. I'd say go run the cliffs and good luck reading the map haha.
