Directions to Trailhead

The off-road park entrance is located at 2914 Highway 101, about a mile North of Highway 380 in Bridgeport. Accessing the park does require heading south on Highway 101, so if coming from Highway 380 a U-turn will be required after passing the turn-off on Highway 101. The park is set back a short distance from Highway 101 with a dirt road between the highway and the gatehouse.

The park is open every Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. in summer and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in winter. Park access fees range from $2 for city residents in a vehicle not to be driven on the trails, to $25 for full sized SUVs. Also required is an annual Texas OHV decal which costs $16.

First time off-road. Really cool park. Easy drive from DFW/ Food and gas nearby. Plenty of room for camping and setting up a base camp. Biggest complaint: I couldnt see trail markers so I had no idea how difficult the various trails were. Made for some 'hell nah' situations. Luckily the park was pretty empty so me backing out of things wasnt an issue. The few people who were there were really polite and everybody had plenty of room to do their thing. Will be going back.

I took a friend of mine who was in town (well in Texas at least) - for training as part of his Air Force duties - to the Northwest HOV area. We went to Bridgeport in my 2007 FJC TRD SE. The trails were still being developed then, and we were there for a special event with other off-road enthusiasts to help blaze them.
