Hey Dashash, I live in Newton, about 30 miles west of Meridian. There are several state parks around, but not many clubs. That I'm aware of at least. But we mostly ride our jeeps on backroads and dirt roads in the area. And sometimes cruise through some trails on a state park. Hope this is helpful. And I can give you a few park names if you wanna research 'em.
Hi nreece0, I'm sorry I'm getting back to you so late. I would absolutely love the names of those parks if you have them! I've been romping around on the back roads as well. Looking for something else now, though! Thanks again.
There's Bienville National Forest in Forest, it's about, say, 50 miles west of Meridian, about 20 west where I am. They claim to have some good logging roads. We were told as long as it isn't gated up and locked, you could ride on it. We bought a map from there, it has the whole forest on it with all the roads. We (me and my wife + her parents) are getting ready to go on a ride out there. There's Marathon Lake in Smith County, it has a lot of good roads around it. And there is Roosevelt State Park in Morton. Located about 15(ish) miles west of Forest. That's really about it. We generally just ride dirt and county roads, and some creek landing roads that aren't technically 'roads', but trails I guess. We should meet up and ride sometime.
Hey Dash, I just moved away from Meridian, spent about 5 years there. There isn't much around Meridian, and no clubs that I know of. CMSJA is you best bet, even though most members are in the Jackson metro area.
