    Default Texas off Highway vehicle program ... Anyone do this?

    Never knew this existed. Anyone do this Texas off Highway vehicle program?

    - - - Updated - - -

    Has your family discovered the fun of riding an off-road trail?

    Whether you ride dirt bikes, all-terrain vehicles, or a 4x4 truck, an off-highway vehicle is a great way to spend time together outdoors with your family and friends. There are many exciting sites in Texas to ride and new sites are always opening. Many sites also offer hiking and camping which makes it easy to take the whole family along for an outdoors adventure.

    The Texas Off-Highway Vehicles (OHV) Program is a new program to help make it easier to find places to ride safely and to encourage more responsible use of the outdoors. The program is also designed to provide funding to develop more recreational areas for OHV users.
    This is a quote from their website.

    Not a new program, been around for about 4 years or so.
    Most off-road parks wont allow you in unless you have an off-road sticker.

    Not a very robust program I'll tell you that. But I give them points for effort.

    I've lived in Texas for 15 years now. One of the huge differences between Washington State and Idaho, where I grew up, is the amount of public trails that we can go on up there vs. Texas where everything is private it seems.

    Depending on what part of Texas you come to you should be able to find places to play off-road.
    South and West Texas have many areas to go off road.
    Around DFW, Houston, and San Antonio its somewhat restricted.

    I was going to head into the off-road area that's in Grand Prarie with the entrance just off the north entrance of Great Southwest Parkway. My kids were asleep in there so I puked in a parking lot nearby and not to long after a father/son duo in a soft top Jeep got a soft stop by the Grand Prairie police. The Jeep was muddy and liked like they were going back, but after the stop they turned around and drove away. ?

    The 360 Trinity river area, they chase people away from there because its a known dumping ground for hot cars and bodies once in a while. Its been off limits a few years now.

    Around Wichita Falls theres a few open areas to play in, mostly farm land and dry trails. Not far away along the Red River is a few good play places. Get with some locals and they can show you some hidden spots.
