Clark Mill Road and Tygh Valley Road

Tygh Valley, Oregon

The combined trail of Clark Mill Road and Tygh Creek Road begins at the old two room schoolhouse in the community of Friend, Oregon in the middle of rolling fields of wheat and hay. Mount Hood looms on the horizon to the west where the mountain's snow-pack helps to provide water to the entire region. The trail passes through oak savanna and grasslands with big views to the south of Central Oregon before plunging into the beginning of the canyon that hides Jordan Creek. A hidden waterfall waits to be discovered at Waypoint 5 where an old mill once stood before the trail continues down along the rim of the canyon. Near where Jordan Creek and Tygh Creek meet, the trail plunges into the canyon where fallow farm fields are tucked away between gnarled old cottonwood trees. A shallow stream crossing just before the end of the trail at Waypoint 6 helps to wash the dirt off of tires before the Clark Mill Road and Tygh Creek Road trail comes to an end at the blacktop outside of Tygh Valley, Oregon.

Main Road 1 - Hot Springs ORV Park

Hot Springs, Arkansas

Originally established in March of 2002 as Superlift Off-Road Vehicle Park, Hot Springs Off-Road Vehicle Park is considered an off-road Mecca by many. The trails are well marked and rated from one to five diamonds (one being the easiest, five being the hardest.) According to HSORV Park's own trail map, a five diamond trail is described as "These are the "real deal" obstacles for the hard-core off-roader. Go with at least 36" tires and all the other truck stuff. Mechanical and body damage is the norm. These trails require a co-driver/spotter and the driver's undivided attention. Bring a camera and a clean change of underwear." The Park's trail map is located here: Hot Springs ORV Park Trail Map and is a great reference for trail rating, rules, and regulations. You will also see on the map there are trails that are intended for motorcycles and/or SxS's/ATV's/UTV's only (no SUV's allowed.)

If you are traveling from afar, plan on staying a while. You can wheel on the trails for days and not even make it to half of them. Anyone from beginner to expert can come and get their money's worth out of several days of trail riding or extreme rock crawling. After a day on the trail, you can shower up at the Park and head downtown to enjoy what Hot Springs has to offer.

HSORV Park is only 5 miles from downtown Hot Springs. The city itself is a huge tourist attraction. From the beautiful scenic views atop Hot Springs Mountain Tower, a fun and refreshing day at Magic Springs Theme and Water Park, or enjoying the history of the city in the downtown spas or Gangster Museum of America, there is something for the whole family. Oaklawn is close by if you like to wager on horses or play some electronic gaming such as poker or blackjack. You could easily stay a week and not take it all in.

Squid's Jaunt G7 to G6 - Hot Springs ORV Park

Hot Springs, Arkansas

Squid's Jaunt at Hot Springs ORV Park is a rock filled, medium difficulty trail that can be enjoyed by both stock and modified 4x4 vehicles. It ascends 366' over the course of half a mile, and is rated a 3 out of 5 on the Park's rating system (which suggests at least 32" aggressive tires and a locking differential). There are enough larger rocks, ledges, and loose gravel to entertain a seasoned veteran. Mildly challenging bypasses around harder sections will also allow a beginner in a stock rig (and use of a spotter) to complete the trail and feel proud to have done so. Traveling from west to east (uphill) is the more challenging route, with a two foot ledge midway up the trail being one of the more notable obstacles. The view back to the west as you get to the top is picture worthy, and warrants stopping along the way to take in the scenery.
