Illinois riders top pick?

I'm located 45min from fox valley off-road, 35min the cliffs insane terrain, 1:45 from tayLorville south fork riders, and 2:10 from the badlands in Attica. Considering the drive which one is best? Being winter time which is better between fox valley and the cliffs?

Never stop searching for that one last great ride!

I'd say fox valley. Cliffs is to rutted up from jeeps and bigger 4X4s usually. If there's no snow and weather has been decent make the trip to badlands. This time of year it's pretty empty, you'll have the park to yourselves most likely. I've never been to Taylorville so don't know anything about it.

Never heard of little egypt, gonna search it now, but cuinmud has a good point about jeeps rutting up the cliffs so I think I ll make fox valley my home area. I m dying to get out and ride! I'm 46yrs old, X pro mxer in the early 90's and haven't been on dirt in 15plus years! Got myself a great condition 03 Ltz, new gear, a atv flag, exhaust, nerfs, renthal bars, plan on spending a sat or sun every week all Summer. Since I'm older none of my friends ride, I would love to set up some kind of forum group rides at different spots to build a network of friends to meet up with!

It's not to bad. I think it's about 1000 acres. it's nothing compared to hatfield McCoy or brimstone but it does have sum rocks in certain sections, so an after market skid I'd definitely recommended. My stock one didn't even last the day.

They don't require stickers anymore. They stopped receiving funds from the state so they said piss on the stickers.

It's only 45 min from my house so we go there a few times a year.
