Tracks and Trails for ATV Riding

I used to ride along the canals in my neighborhood, but they recently banned motorized vehicles. What tracks and trails do you all ride on with your ATV's? I am not interested in the mud hole/river type riding. I emailed 3 Palms to see what they offered for ATV's and am waiting on a response. How is the SHNF for ATV riding? Is it beginner friendly or is it for experienced riders? I plan to bring my son to some of these places after I check them out.

you can do most of SHNF on an ATV i'd think....it might be tight in spots, but not too bad....only dilemma is 2 way trails and bikes hauling the mail vs. puttin' on a 4 wheeler. Certainly doable though, just be aware of your surroundings. Heck, that's what the game warden rides around. Just make sure you have spark arrestors and ORV Stickers....game wardens out in full force with hunting going on right now.

Most tracks around here aren't big quad fans. But splendora mx allows them and has a pretty nice track.

Quads are fine in the forest,BUT besides the s/a, 5 fee for day, and 16$ sticker from the state, to ride a quad you must also show proof of completion of a safety course and have decal on quad. A bunch of red tape for sure. Also helmets required and can't ride double.

How is this place? Is there a good mix of terrain, or just mud?

I am looking for a spot to ride a ranger, are the trails wide enough for a full size UTV.

When it doesn't rain for a week or 2 all the trails are nice and sandy with very few mud holes. Most of the mud holes have a trail to go around them and all of the trails are utv friendly so you shouldn't have any problems in the ranger.
