Twin Buttes OHV Area

Tuesday, March 15, 2022

Other Names

Twin Buttes Reservoir

Last Known StatusOpen

Overlooking the shores of Twin Buttes Reservoir, this large area offers many miles of narrow and twisty single track to rugged ATV trails. The terrain is mostly sandy with occasional hard pack and loose chunk rock.

The trails wind through a mix of prickly pear cactuses, scrub brush and mesquite trees. Camping is permitted but primitive.

A Texas OHV Decal and Limited Public Use Permit is required and can be purchased online or at the nearby Family Powersports.
