The cliffs in Marseilles isnt really TOO far from you. Take I-80 and it should be 2 hours tops I would think. Great place to go...lots of trails ...Easy to Insane.
$24 to get in... no more than 39.5" tires.. Flag required (for sale there $12)

Yeah, wouldn't be more than 2 hours. I can make it from here to the Quad cities in about 90 minutes

My son and I are planning to go to the Cliffs this Saturday the 29th. Leaving from the Quad Cities at about 8:00. This will be our first trip and we are going to trailer our '05 Rubicon so the wife and daughter can have the truck to drive while we are at the park. Anyone want to join us????

I still need an orange flag, is it safe to assume The Cliffs will have one for sale or is there a better place to buy one?

See that tree behind me in the first pic? Makes it hard to pull straight back. To the passengers side is a 10 ft drop off...so...forward?


No...forward doesnt work either
