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.
