    Top 10 Places We Want To Ride

    With much of North America dealing with a snowy winter, many are longing for another chance to get out and ride without dealing with the bitter cold. While we can’t offer you a ride on a sun-soaked trail, we can tease you with a look at where we want to ride this year.

    We scoured our memory banks and old articles to come up with 10 places we hope to get a chance to visit in 2015 – and 2016, 2017, 2018…

    This is just a small taste test of the awesome riding destinations available to be explored, so if we missed anything don’t be offended; just tell us about it in the comments so we know where to go next time. This list is presented geographically, from east to west.

      Approximately 25 riders and supporters were on hand Saturday to celebrate the reopening of phase one of the Rattlesnake Bay OHV Trails in Mississippi’s DeSoto National Forest, according to a report from the American Motorcyclist Association.

      Prior to Satorday’s reopening, these trails had been “temporarily” closed for more than 11 years. The Friends of Rattlesnake Bay off-highway-vehicle group joined U.S. Forest Service officials for a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the 9.5-mile section of trails.

        Imperial Sand Dunes Volunteers

        It’s taken a lot of work from organizations like the American Sand Association (aSa) and many committed volunteers, but 40,000 acres of currently closed sand dunes are being reopened for off-road recreation.

        The aSa, in conjunction with the Bureau of Land Management, is looking for volunteers to start the process of removing the closure stakes in the Imperial Sand Dunes Recreation Area. Specifically, th small central closure near Gecko Campground and the 160 acres in Buttercup. According to the aSa, the Buttercup project will also call for assistance with the re-installation of the critical habitat closure near the US/Mexico border.

          ATV Trails Reopened

          While the threat of ATV trails closing gets a lot of attention, we are very pleased to report that the U.S. Forest Service has reopened 31 miles of ATV trails in Mississippi. The Rattlesnake Bay ATV Trails are located in the DeSoto National Forest.

          Area riders can thank the Friends of Rattlesnake Bay, which worked to serve as a strong and unified voice for the trail users.

            Top 10 Sand Dunes

            Riding sand dunes on an ATV or a Side-by-Side is a freeing experience. You can pretty much cut, carve, climb and go wherever you want (within reason).

            Experiencing the G-forces at the bottom of a dune or carving a bowl at full throttle beats any roller coaster at Six Flags and sand dunes offer a lot of diversity compared to just riding on a track or a trail system.

            If you’ve never ridden sand dunes before, definitely pick a spot from our list and make the time to experience what millions of ATV and UTV enthusiasts make time for every year. Here is our top ten list of sand dune riding locations in the US.
