Last Known Status
This is a state operated recreation area designed specifically for OHVs. The area offers a wide variety of banked, one-way, rated trails and plenty of shaded parking. If you pay attention you can see wild turkeys and wild boars on the trail.
The Lower Ranch staging area consists of about 65 miles of trails for ATVs and motorcycles, and a number of MX tracks. The Upper Ranch staging area has about 25 miles of wider trails, and can be reserved for special events and private gatherings up to 300 people. Area 5 is for use only by buggies and 4x4 vehicles.
An onsite store called Faultline Powersports sells snacks, parts and gear. Rider traffic is heavy on weekends, particularly on the main roads. The park is heavily patrolled and rangers at the gate often check noise levels, check for spark arrestors, and verify OHMVR stickers.
A new trail section called the Renz property was added in 2008. This new area includes 23 miles of additional trails for motorcycles and ATVs.
