If the beach isn’t your happy place, you might prefer the rocky wooded trails at Kansas Rocks Recreation Park.

Off-roaders who want to get lost in nature can disappear on the forest trails in Black Hills National Forest.

If you enjoy off-roading but also want to explore your skills with alternative vehicles, this is the park for you.

No matter what vehicle you’re using, remember to secure overhead belongings. This protects your truck while off-roading and allows other off-roaders to continue to safely enjoy the trails. Please note that you will need to purchase a permit for all off-highway vehicles.

No matter your experience level, you can enjoy off-roading in these amazing locals.
