Off Roading in Illinois

Most of the parks/places I found are atv/dirt bike only so I'm looking for somewhere (public or private) in the Chicagoland area to go off roading. Any ideas?

I'm also looking for a place to try out my Montero....I'm sure there's a few just have to search em out! In the meantime, anybody know what's in the CHicagoland area? Thanks...

I haven't been able to locate any parks in Chicagoland area, here's one thats not too far:
Cliffs Insane Terrain

I'll keep adding them as I find them....

place in Chicago land

hello,

I just moved to the area of Justice and there are some cool trails to ride on here. The videos posted was on Sunday 20th. Was real dry but lots of fun when its really wet. If you guys want to know where it is then ask me maybe we can meet up one day and ride them. I go alone so i don't do anything stupid cause i wont get out alone. Would be nice to go trailing with someone

Years ago I used to belong to Iron Horse 4x4's out of Indiana. We had an awesome place we would frequently ride at near Calumet City. I haven't wheeled in many years, into dirt bikes now. Here is there website....Iron Horse 4x4s Inc.

These guys really like to play in the mud. They are not about gathering and looking at the trucks.

Sorry to bump an old thread, but, I live in the Palos Hills area and I think I have been off roading near the spots in your pics before. If anyone is interested in off roading from this area, please reply and let's set something up.
