If anyone knows anywhere to ride in Alabama please post it in this thread.
I'm located in Prattville (right outside Montgomery).

My local spot is now off-limits. Cops are heavy there now. Land owner is quite furious over juveniles drinking, dumping trash and burning everything in site. Because of this I've lost my quick fix spot which is 5 minutes from my house.

Yes, I can no longer hit the cooter :(


I'm starting this thread because I know we have quite a few members on this forum from the state of Alabama and we should share this information with each other.
Seems good riding spots are becoming more and more scarce.

I've been told of a few places in Selma which I will check out and report back here.

man i'm in AL as well and wish i could help but only places we go (thats remotely close) is Culloden, GA and Talbotton, GA. Culloden (Rocky Creek) is about an hour and 45 mins from us and Talbotton (Paradise Farms) is about an hour and 15 mins. Thats the only two places I know of besides Dirty Dog in Phenix City and I dont care too much for that place so we dont even think about it. But may be something you like - It'd probably be close to 2 hours for you for Dirty Dog.

Culloden or Talbotton would be worth the time to drive and stay overnight - both are pretty good parks. Hit them up after its been raining though.

Wishing for places to ride near Prattville too...

I moved into Indian Hills and there is a decent area connected to the subdivision. But I called the owner and he is an adamant no. There is also a place across from the entrance to Indian Hills. A nicer no.

I'd love to find someone with some acreage nearby that wouldn't mind letting some of us ride, even for a fee.

I hope we can find something.

Minooka is not too far. Have you been up there?

We went to Boggs & Boulders this weekend also.. It was a very nice place, but VERY expensive to get in there.. I don't see myself making too many trips there unless its for a few days with a BIG group or something.. Southern Ridge is a little closer than B&B, AWSOME trail riding there.. Old Dirty Dog is back open, now it's Mudders Mag Park, VERY reasonable rates though, $20 for the whole weekend camping and all.. We also ride mortar creek sometimes, I know a fella that lives right by it so we park at his house and ride out from there.. If you want to ride there with us you are welcome to, I'll hit you up next time we go, You can bring friends too, he has plenty of parking at his house.. That's the only place I know of real local to ride.. Oh and the lightwood mudbog is the fourth saturday of each month I think.. Not much trails there though just a BIG mudhole to play in..

I know this thread is OLD, but I also live in Prattville and I still ride at cooters. I also live in Indian hills as stated above. And sometimes ride at the area behind the subdivision even though I shouldn't. Sometimes me and my buddies ride behind the autauga airport behind Windfield. But mostly ride by my river house in Autaugaville off of Dutch Bend Road. Never knew us members were so close.

I live near Auburn. We usually ride dirt roads and the Tallapoosa river around the house. We also go to Boggs and Creekbottom. Anyone know if Dirty Dogs/Mudders has changed since the new owners bought it out? Looking at going to the Firecracker Bash at Creekbottom this weekend if anyone else is interested.

Hey guys, I too am searching for places closer to home (Montgomery) to ride. I've been to Minooka (Jemison) and The Ridge (Springville), both places are great, but they're a bit too far to go every weekend. If anyone knows of anything local, I'd love to hear about it. Central Alabama has zero to offer as far as sanctioned parks go, Auburn withstanding. As another poster mentioned, I'd be more than willing to pay a few bucks to ride somewhere if the landowner was willing. It's understandable that so many landowners are hesitant, though, what with personal and property injury lawsuits, etc.

There really aren't any places even close to here to ride. I live in Deatsville and there is one place to ride about 15 minutes from my house called the lightwood mudbog, but I haven't been there in over a year. Lots of mud but not much trails at all, just one BIG *** mud hole with sprinklers to keep it muddy. But they do let you bring anything out there, dirtbikes, quads, trucks, etc. It's an ok place to get muddy and have a few cold ones and watch the BIG trucks play and tear stuff up. If you ever want to try it out let me know and we'll hit it up one weekend. My bike is still down right now but I should have it back up in a couple weeks. Here is a link to the place, not a whole lot to it but it's all we have here. LMAO Slapout Mud Bog

I went to Minooka two weeks ago. It's a really nice place. The trails are pretty technical; it was my first park experience after having just bought my first ATV and I had to grow some balls fast. I'd imagine it would only be moderately challenging for an experienced rider. It was dry as a powder house when I was there, so there was no mud or water at all, which suits me OK since I'm more of a "trail" guy. But, there were a few bog sites along the trails for people that want that. All in all, for how relatively close it is to the Montgomery tri-county area, it's a great place.

They have a specific trail system for SxS's. But, that being said, I don't think a SxS rider would have much issue, despite the website saying "50" or less". I never felt like the trails were terribly narrow and I've got a pretty big ATV.

Yeah I talked to the park ranger a while back. The SxS trails seems pretty short.

Just saw these people on Animal Planet on a show called "Mud Loving Rednecks", is this a real place in Verbena, Alabama?


Mountain Creek Mud Bog | Facebook
Yeah man. I go up there every month. It aint big at all but it has some decent mud holes, mostly challenging just cause trucks use/rut out the same ones we use. Its got some hill climbs, steps, but its really just a mud pit. Its fun as hell, and there is a concert at the next one, August 11th. I know i'll be there with my girl.
