West Texas Off-Roading Adventure for your Jeep
For many Texans, off-roading is as much a part of our state’s lore as Friday night lights or sending rockets into space. As fans of homegrown, motor-revving excitement, Blake Fulenwider Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Snyder has several prospects for muddy adventure and fun in West Texas and nearby.
Outback Adventure Track, near Stanton, is a two-track off-road motorsports park for dirt bike and ATV riders. It has miles of narrow twisting trails, fast straightaways, jumps, and a normally dry lakebed. The facility is open to the public on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Nearby, the city of Big Spring operates the dirt bike loop at Moss Creek Lake, dubbed an oasis of West Texas. The 400-acre parkland has a paintball course and a beach-swimming area. The daily cost is only $5 per rider.
In Lubbock, Buffalo Springs Lake OHV Trails run through the hills above the lake. Highlights are long runs on hardpack with plenty of loose dirt, mud, and some small jumps. Camping, fishing, and wakeboarding can be part of the fun. Twin Buttes OHV in San Angelo is managed by the city. The facility has 15 miles of one-way trails for vehicles from Jeeps to motorbikes of steep climbs and sands leading the bank of the reservoir. An OHV decal is required. Camping, hiking, and fishing are on site.
On the northwestern fringe of Texas Hill Country sits the city of Mason, the focal point of Texas OHV adventure. Mason boasts two facilities each said to be the best in Texas. Wolf Caves Off Road Park in Mason is known for rock crawling at its best. The ranch with incredibly unique granite outcropping is just 8 miles west of town. Its trails will challenge even the most heavily-modified rock crawler, yet there are many trails for all levels of drivers and vehicles. ATVs, UTVs, and motorcycles are not allowed.
Katemcy Rocks, pronounced Ka-TIM-see, is called the ‘Moab of Texas’ due to more than 800 acres of granite rock. The park has diverse terrain with numerous obstacles, from easy to extreme, for all levels of four-wheeler drivers. A visit to Mason and these two locations would make an off-roader’s year and can be turned into an affordable short-stay vacation.
