Places to Go Offroading in Ohio Valley

The Rising Popularity of Offroading.

Like most outdoor activities, Offroading has been steadily gaining in popularity. Every year more people are discovering a new passion for the sport. Rising popularity is almost always a good thing, but you may find that your favorite trails are being overrun by new enthusiasts. Part of the draw of outdoor sports is the sense of freedom and being out there away from everyone else. This becomes an issue when there is only one or two parks in your area.

Due to the congestion at local trails and parks, I decided to put together a list of all the parks in the Ohio Valley region. In an effort to help fellow enthusiasts, I decided to make the list public and easily accessible. There is no doubt that all of this information is available across the web, but here it is in it's entirety in a single location. Check the trails out and see if you can find a new challenge somewhere in this list.

Indiana Offroad Trails and Parks

The state of Indiana has a few different offroad trails and parks to choose from. They all offer a good range of difficulties in their trails, and an amazing scenery for your trip.
