Default Bundy hill trails?

Every thing I see at bundy hill is mostly a big open area with a pond and some hills but every now and again theres some shots of trails and some vallys is there alot of that there? Im trying to decide if I should go to the Mounds again or try Bundy Hill especialy since Bundy hill is closer.

See photo wise i kinda dont see it, Tho is does seem like a great place to explode an axel or take a nice roll seeing as theres alot of gravely gultches and such and judging by your avitar your verry in to rocks alike things.

And once again i really like tight tree filled fender destroying mucky trails and ive seen about 2 pictures with a few trees but mostly of the main (im asumeing) scrambel area type spots.

Since this months trip is just to get my jeep out once before i start its real build, one friend has just enuff money to get his TJ there and maby back, and the other has never wheeld her TJ (o ya her ahah) im verry iffy on takeing them some where new.

Heres a nice vid of the double black diamond trail through the woods (forgot the name). Very twisty, and very technical. Bundy has many many trails like it, and everything else you could want.

I'm going to be honest with you, I don't know you or your wheeling style, but I can promise you that there is something there for everyone, including you.
We have 350 acres that is not the same from one end of the park to the other.
We have it all, except that nice white fluffy sand that they have up at Silver Lake Sand Dunes.
If you want to wheel nicely, we have it. If you want to wheel like an animal and break stuff, we have that to.
I'm just saying we have a lot of stuff, it all depends on how nutty you want to get.
If you get out here and find that you're bored, then come find a ranger we'll point ya in the right direction.
Hope to see ya out at Bundy Hill soon.

Heres the "wheel it like an animal" video. A lot of what is seen in this one is in a trail called warn valley. That XJ in the end really screwed his rig up (you can hear his front diff crack and explode).

Those are some great Videos FFD!
Sitting up above Warn Valley watching all the rigs come up it just never gets old.

We now have 6 Picnic Tables out in that area for folks to take a break, eat lunch, and or just enjoy watching rigs go through Bare Back Trail, & Warn Valley.

Just went there this weekend for the first time. It was also my first real wheeling other than Silver lake. IT WAS AWESOME!! The only bad part was the guy in the yellow shirt by the building. We got turned around and he was a complete a-hole. We tried to explain we were turned around and he didn't want to hear anything about it. Almost kicked us out. Go with someone so you don't have to deal with Mr Happy.

That gentleman has been spoken with about his attitude toward customers. Your not the first person to comment on him. Please don't let that stop you from coming back!

We are so very very sorry about that. That staff member will be addresses about this, and we can assure you that it will not happen again to anyone.
He's there to make sure you as a guest are assisted finding a place to park, not rip you when you make a wrong turn.
I can assure everyone that no one will ever be asked to leave for the way they park.
If anyone has any kind of problems in the parking area, or any other area of the park with the staff, please stop up front and let us know.
We try very hard to help our guests have the best time we can, and I really hope we're doing that for everyone.

Thanks, and again we are very sorry that happened to you.

The Staff & Owners of Bundy Hill Off Road Park.



(Jeepnoob, stop and see me at the front gate your next time out. Thanks, Swamp)

That is the first negative experience I have ever heard from bundy regarding staff. Im actually shocked.


Everyone whom Ive met out there has been very friendly and very helpful. Especially the guy with the V8 YJ. IMO he went above and beyond being helpful when we snapped a driveshaft. Not only did he tow us back to the front, but he also loaned us the tools and parts needed to fix it. And when we needed something he didnt have in the shop, he gave us great directions to the nearest part store.


Though......when towing us up back to the front he did dump us in a water hole, lol.



Good god did that YJ have power. He was tugging us around like we were a little red wagon.


Thats another thing.......stay the hell away from the water out there. Some of those holes are DEEP, and get deep FAST.
