Good Listing of OFF ROAD trails ...

I live in IL where off road trails exist on personal property, not public lands. Trying to plan some off-road adventures in CO, UT, other western states, and wondered what websites, maps, etc exist for off road trails. A general GOOGLE search yields tons of results, but some I've visited lack information (GPS coor for start, end; length, etc).

Appreciate a couple good places to view reliable, current info.

Thanks.

Some states have a special permit that gains you access to certain offroad parks, I know Texas has one. With your registration you should get a map to their sites.

Just wanted to say TRAILSOFFROAD was exactly what i was looking for. Not planning some major rock climbing...just decent, scenic off-road drives to see the Mtns, etc in Colorado to begin with. Been to CO several times but didn't get off the beaten path as much as i wanted.

Thanks again Supamegamanxt

Haven't tried Trailsoffroad yet. In Wa, Or, Id, and Ut there's a website called nwjeepn.com that I like to use.

I have used https://www.traildamage.com . It is very useful in giving direction to the trailhead.

There are a lot of trails out there....but understand, some of them are LEGAL and some are not. You really need to be aware of the legalities of where you go off-roading. Keep it legal. Keep it safe. Keep it clean.

I'm in Colorado and use traildamge.com and the forest service MVUMs. You can stop at any ranger station within a park and get a free MVUM map and they are all accessible and downloadable to navigation apps from the UD Forest service sites. We've don petty intense wheeling (for these trucks) and even more backcountry site seeing on Level 1-3 trails.

I started using the Gaia GPS app. Seems a lot of overlanders use it.
