    Default Off roading trails in Mo. (Missouri)

    Does anyone have any insights as to where one could go to get a little 4wd fun out of their system?? I'm a 'true offroading' virgin and wouldn't mind knowing if there is anywhere to go to get my feet wet, so to speak.

    Woot! I'll make sure to keep an eye out for the post then. I think it would be worth the trip. Thanks for the heads up!

    Head a little farther east of Branson and you're smack dab in the middle of Mark Twain Nat. Forest. Free four wheelin' fun for every one. Just grab a map (or not) and explore.

    True dat.. but I'm unsure about what passes as acceptable, what isn't, and would hate to get anywhere and get stuck.

    Mark, I don't supposed you could PM me a website or webpage about the event, if there is one?

    Thanks for the update!

    We spend a lot of time down there on 4 wheelers and all legal trails are marked with a brown fiberglass
    floppy post thing with a number on it, some even tell you how long the trail is.As for getting stuck, get a buddy with a 4wd to go with you, or just be very cautious if you go alone. I used to go by my self quite a bit back in the good old toyota days and never had a problem. I used reverse A LOT.

    I was stationed about 130 miles nort east of Branson. I was only there for a short time but we found plenty of trails off the 17. Hope this helps, it's been a few years so I don't remember any towns but there were a lot of them. On a side note, I had my first taste of well water out there.
