    Has anyone been to the Barnwell Mountain OHV Area just east of Dallas? I just found out about this place and am looking for some info. Has anyone been recently or going any time soon?

    Been out there twice, great trails some are a little tight for a k5. I think we are having another club run (tx4x4 arlington) the weekend of sept 14. Even if the club doesnt go i will be out there, you are more than welcome to join us.

    Here are some pics of the area when the RRORC was there. It's all Fords but you get the idea. Go to pics and look under Gilmer April 24.

    It's pretty far from Dallas, more like EAST Texas. I've driven by there but at the time I was piloting our 2WD Blazer so I can't tell you what it's like. I do plan to go there sometime....

    Been there and became a member. Got my best bit of body damage on their trails. If you do other atv's such as Dirtbike, four-wheeler or mountain bike it is great. I got stuck and had the guy up at the front gate help. A locker can really help but for the most part, just not being afraid to take some dings in the sheet metal can get you through. With a winch there isn't anything you couldn't handle there. Also, it is a big tight place, and some of the trails start a few miles from the front gate and people. All together, I'd like to go back soon. Oh yeah, if you have nice paint, wax to hell and I mean 6 coats if you don't want pinstriping from branches
