Mud, rain, two-strokes, and adrenaline, motocross brings a unique type of racing competitiveness that has been deemed an extreme sport for very good reasons. Racers are competing on off-road circuits that contain various difficult elements such as hill climbs and table tops. These motocross tracks are designed to test the riders, allowing for the very best to pull the win. When attending an event, it almost feels like the riders have been training their whole life for these off-road circuits. And most of them have been. So how does a rider inch their way into the motocross world comfortably?

Are you looking for legal places to drive your Off Highway Vehicle (OHV)? In this article, The Motor Bookstore takes a stab at providing a list of the best OHV parks by City and State to legally drive your Jeep or other 4×4 vehicle.

Best OHV Parks - 2008 Jeep Wrangler

No matter the season, your Jeep is constantly waiting to be taken off-road. That is the beauty of owning one.  An apocalypse happens during your daily commute to work? Your Jeep has you covered. Earthquake causes your driveway to become covered in boulders and rocks? Your 4×4 will crawl right over them, giving you plenty of time to drop the kids off at school. Owning an OHV approved car that can handle almost any terrain you take it on is a great feeling. Though it is not such a great feeling when you accidentally trespass on private property when you attempt to do some quick off-roading in your apocalypse car. To avoid getting in the bad kind of trouble with your Jeep, we recommend getting in the good kind of trouble that consists of figuring out how to maneuver your car down an advanced trail that is located at one of the best OHV parks in the country.

We did our research on the best OHV parks that consist of all types of terrain and will be a good time for all skill levels. We started with locating OHV parks near the 10 biggest cities in the US that are 4×4 and Jeep friendly, but this list is far from complete and we want to keep it growing with your help.
