Arrow New Park - Rush OffRoad - Eastern KY

There is a new park opened up in Eastern KY called Rush OffRoad. It is 7,000 acres, open to all vehicles, and only 10 minutes off the interstate. Permits are $25 for a week permit or $75 for a yearly permit.

The park opened in December and has already grown into a great park. It is divided into 2 parts because a road goes thru the property. The owner and 3 others(me included) have been working hard clearing trails and putting trail signs up. There is about a 2 acre parking lot. The trails go from mud to forest trails to crazy rock and hill climbs.

The grand opening event is scheduled for April 20th, and will have live band and food at the trailhead.

For more info, their website is http://www.rushoffroad.com
The facebook page is http://facebook.com/RushOffRoad
The youtube page is http://youtube.com/RushOffRoad

We don't have a whole lot of rock climbing videos yet, but it is out there.

Any questions, you can call the owner(E.B.) at 606-232-7494 or ask them on here and I can help you out.

I will be out here. Have been out a few times now since it has opened and it is awesome. Didnt see the same trail twice within 5 hours of riding. New rock crawling trails are being added to the map more and more.
Some pics.

That hill is called 3 Pole and is insane. Not doable in a jeep by any means. More of a rail buggy climb than anything.
Check out facebook.com/rushoffroad for some more jeep and atv/utv pics and videos.
Recently opened up rock crawl trail. Not my jeep. This trail is nuts and almost have to come out with body damage lol.
They are thinking of naming it Body Damage or Carnage.

We rode yesterday for about 8 hours and didnt even touch nearly a quarter of the trails that are out there.

Looks fun but doesn't look like carnage but pics rarely do justice.

That is why I knew pic 5 I referenced earlier must be extremely steep since it looks so steep in pics.

The carnage on that trail comes mostly from off camber throwing you against trees.

Also bear in mind, this is the first time anybody has been on these trails, they are being blazed as we speak.....in time they will get cleaned out, and more rock exposed and get harder and harder, (better and better).
