Hey there! Mid April I'm planning a trip to the northern tip of Texas or west Oklahoma area. I'm from Flagstaff, AZ and really haven't done any extensive traveling east of Arizona. I have a buddy meeting me from Tennessee and his experience with those areas are barely broader than mine.

Anyone able to give me some good info on trails in those areas? On a scale of 1-10, I'd prefer to stay under 7. This is my only running pony right now and I'll have a ways to travel. He's also still fairly stock; just has the Cooper Discoverer STT's and is the Trail Team edition.

Any advice is greatly appreciated!

I'm from the Dallas area but I can't steer you in the right direction for the area you are going. Most of Texas is privately held land. Maybe somebody in that area will be able to help.

Thanks for that. I was kinda fearing that would be the case. Heard the further East you go, the more you run into privately owned land.

Hello cjgonefj,
I would start in Clayton Ok and take the K trail into Arkansas. It is a low to med rated trail.
You can find a few videos on YouTube. It is a two day trip into Arkansas.

Looks gorgeous! I'll have to save up again for that one and take that through to the Ozarks. It just starts to get a little too far East for this trip. Thanks for the tip though!

Like said about Texas, there's a lot of privately held land in OK as well. I'm always looking for another place to go wheelin. We enjoy the river runs here but for the most part it's hard to find a place to enter that isn't through private land. Take a look at Little Sahara, mostly for the dune buggy atv crowd but still fun. May be too North for ya. I prefer more of the over landing and secluded stuff so I don't have much info on the offroad parks. Wish I lived closer to CO or Utah.

Don't mean to hijack the thread but I also live in Mustang. I drive a lifted black and white. What are you driving, I'm sure I have seen you around. There's a blue FJ, blacked out FJ, and silver FJ I see all the time.

Thanks for the tip. River runs will be a fairly new experience for me. Not too much water in my area, just snow then mud if we get precipitation at all.
Colorado is amazing! I go to the San Juans every Summer staying based out of Ouray or Silverton usually.

When I say river what I really mean, is maybe 2' of stagnet water with a bunch of sand. :) It's fun but definitely nothing like out there.

We need to set up a run for a weekend in the near future. I don't really have anywhere close that I go wheeling. My favorites are SE Okla., West Arkansas and Northern New Mexico.

Part of what you are referring to isn't usually called N. Texas, it's the Panhandle. Perhaps check out:

The Panhandle has an abundance of public land for jeep riders, including The Canadian River and Lake Meredith (nps.gov/lamr) near Amarillo. Both areas offer free riding and camping for jeep enthusiasts of all abilities. One of the largest areas is along the Canadian River, where off-road organizations like the West Texas Outlaws (west-texasoutlaws.com) hold annual riding competitions on the 20,000-acre site.
