Does anyone have experience wheeling here? I’ll be in the area next weekend and would like to go there.

There are 3 Badge of Honor trails there. Go for it and let us know how it goes. @chevymitchell and I will be hitting Hot Springs in November.
Thanks I didn’t know that! I downloaded the app and I think I’m going to try Snake and Rubicon Ridge.

I’ll try to get some pics or video.

Went on Saturday. Had a blast. The place is huge, lots and lots of trails of every skill level and length.

I was able to complete all three Badge of Honor trails with no damage or mishaps. Definitely a place worth checking out. @UNC Rubicon if you guys have room for one more in November let me know details as the tine gets closer.

I’ll post a few pics later.

Awesome. Glad you had fun. The dates are fluid right now but should be around 11/14-11/16 (give or take). We would love for you to join us.

i love Hot Springs ORV park, some of the trails are a little harder than marked due to a lot of ultra 4 racing. weve been going there for a decade. the cabins and such are great to use if youre into that too. panther ranch and other amenities are close too.

lots of variety for everyone to have fun there. glad yall liked it.

@Chocolate Thunder, how do you like your Patagonia’s?
For on the road, if the KO2s are a 10 I’d rate the Patagonias a 7.5 or so. A little noisier, a little less smooth and refined. I just rotated them last week and I could swear they’re a little louder now on road than before. Only about 5K miles on them.

Off road I’d rate them a 9. This is very subjective of course and I’m new to off-roading. They grip like a mountain goat. They wouldn’t break traction except once on a very steep decline on loose rock. That was a gravity thing, not a traction thing.

Looking to go there in a couple of weeks. Reading on the app and they are saying you need lockers. Is it doable on the Sahara with Mopar lift and 35's?

Did you camp somewhere? would you recommend where to camp?

I didn’t camp, we stayed at some swanky place on Lake Hamilton. The opposite of camping.

There’s plenty of trails that your Jeep can handle there. You’ll need lockers on some of the more extreme stuff. But the easy and moderate trails should be fine. There are stock Jeeps out there on some trails.

Have fun!
