Places to ride off road?

Any places to ride off road, or atv parks south of Houston? I'm in Corpus Christi, but ride North on my XRL from time to time. There ain't nothing other than 1 field with a dirt pile down here.

I have heard of Marble Falls before, my friend up there used to ride it alot.

Yea it stinks that South South Texas doesn't really have any outdoors offerings.

I would like to move up by the Sam Houston Natl Forest some day.
We have the Natl Seashore here, it's fun in the Jeep. 67 miles 1 way of sand.

Kind of ironic really how Texas has kind of rugged outdoors image, but in reality for size of the state, the area offered outdoor activities in Texas really does suck, because 99% of the land is private.

Yea and the fact they find 120+ John Doe's in the brush every year in Duval County alone kinda ruins the romance of the out doors, lol.

Yep and most people don't realize really how bad it is here until you take a trip or two out west. NM, AZ, NV, CO, UT, etc. yes and even CA that everyone here loves to hate. TX sucks dog for available off road riding area compared to any of those states. Endless miles of varied terrain, rugged, desert, mountains, maintained trails, dedicated OHV areas, BLM land, state land, etc. endless opportunities nearby.

What about places closer to beaumont. I'd prefer trails but flat track or mx parks would work.

I suppose the forest will be closed this weekend? I do believe that we will have to postpone the brazos valley ride day this Sunday to another future date.

James, check the message at the SHNF, as of 2pm Friday, it is still open. Jason has reconsidered closing on forecast and is being a bit more dirt bike friendly since we have begun helping clean the trails in the forest. Mark and Donnie are there riding right now and hopefully we'll get a report on what condition the trails are in today with this rain. We rode Tuesday after the rain last weekend and trails were in great shape with few puddles. Hopefully this rain is soaking in, but we'll see. Depending how much rain they get today and tomorrow will decide if we're riding Sunday or going to Dual Sport this weekend.

I would think big bend national park would have some good options. It is a drive but well worth the treck once there.

How much dose it cost to ride at SHNF? Will they allow bikes like a renegade 1000 and scrambler 1000 that are all stock? 100miles of riding sounds amazing
