Default How quad friendly is the Mounds?

Hey all
A few of my friends are looking about doing some trail riding and was lookin at the mounds. I am the only one with a 4x4 however. Would a sport quad get around over there? Any info would be great

I have seen sport quads over there before. Never had mine out there yet, but I will soon. Mine is 2x4. Not all of it is mud. Should be fine!

it would be fine, just don't take on the big puddles if your not sure of how deep they are. the trails at the mound are plenty, the big trucks only use about half the open 240 acres

X 10.

I think The Mounds are better for quads than trucks. More trails, more stuff to get into.

I've had my Polaris 500 out there the last two weekends. The dry mud is kinda fun too - like crawling a moonscape.

unless you have a truck like mine and dont give a shit about body damage..


Ii've had my 400EX out there plenty and never had a boring time.. theres plenty of sandy areas to open it out and jump a lil.. and tons of nice trails.. just be cautious of the trucks..

Its' true - I watched you in the woods.

I don't jump my quad. 700+ pounds is a lot to get airborne.
