The Cliffs Off Road Park is a place for insane quad bikers, who want to test themselves in extreme driving conditions.

There are some easy trails, but the features of the park are an obstacle-driving heaven to quad bikers. Intersections, small jumps, water crossings, steep hills, rocks, dust, mud, hard pack along with plenty of trees and loose dirt.

The terrain lies at an ideal elevation of 500 to 650 ft/152.4 to 182.8 m and offers many amazing things to quad bikers. This park is very popular, so rider traffic is for granted. Although the terrain is mostly suitable for amateurs, all level drivers can have a blast!
