While we're on topic... anywhere in the Louisville area?
I'm in Louisville. Closest place to legally wheel is Dirty Turtle Off Road Park in Trimble County (about 50 miles from Louisville). Dirty Turtle Offroad - Bedford, Kentucky
The next closest place would be Interlake in Southern Indiana, approximately 113 miles from Louisville. Interlake is controlled by DNR so you will want to make sure you know and follow the rules, or it could be a very very expensive day for you. DNR: Interlake Property
Slade / Natural Bridge is approximately 122 miles from Louisville and is a place that you should wheel at **ONLY** if you have a trail guide who knows where to take you and more importantly, where not to go. Public trails cross private property with little or no warning. If you end up on the wrong side of a property line by accident, it could prove to be a $$ nightmare $$. Natural Bridge is a State Park with very limited public property for off roading Kentucky State Parks - Home
Wishbone is in Bowling Green, KY. I have only been there once, so I will simply refer you to their Web site; New Page 0
Turkey Bay Off Road Park is 204 miles from Louisville and is located in the Land Betweeen the Lakes (LBL) National Recreational Area. LBL | OHV Riding & Camping
Turkey Bay is a place that without a guide who knows where the "Fun stuff" is, you could spend a weekend there and never see the good stuff.
Harlan is by far the largest and probably the best know off road area. Harlan is approximately 230 miles from Louisville. Harlan County, Kentucky - Official Web Site - Black Mountain Off-Road Adventure Area
There is also the Badlands in Indiana. I have been here only a few times. Their Web site is: http://www.badlandsoffroad.com/
Redbird is a place that I have been only once; http://redbirdsra.com/
Haspin Acreas is a place that I have been only once, left early, and have no desire to ever return. If you like lots of ATV's, motorcycles, drunks every where and mud, mud, and more mud, you will like Haspin Acres. Otherwise, don't waste your time or gas. http://haspinacres.com/
