Looking for a new adventure, adrenaline rush, and maybe a springtime road trip? You’ve come to the right place. But where can you find these magical places? We’ve pulled together the best springtime off-roading destinations in the US. Getting there is half the fun, and RV trips have relaxing benefits. So buckle in, and let’s take a look at a few beautiful destinations.
Rubicon Trail, California
If you’re looking for a hard-core off-roading experience, the Rubicon Trail in California is just the thing. This 22-mile trail winds its way through the Sierra Nevada mountains and provides an experience that is not for beginners. The best time to visit this trail is in the springtime, when it’s dry enough to run through, but before all the summer visitors arrive.
You want a beautiful place to ride, and you love to go camping. So why not combine the two? The small town of Moab, Utah, is famous for its slickrock trails. There are plenty of places to camp near Moab, including Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park. Depending on where you stay, there may be rules about where you can camp; so if possible, reserve your spot before you leave home. You should also be sure that the water system in your ATV trailer is working well before you take off on your trip; the last thing you want is a broken water pump while you’re miles from civilization! For the best experience, you’ll want to plan ahead.
Black Hills, South Dakota
Seven trailheads provide access to the Centennial Trail in the central Black Hills, perfect for hiking and biking. And if you want to push yourself, try the 109-mile Mickelson Trail! This small, isolated mountain range is full of forested hills and is home to the famous attraction Mount Rushmore.
Four Corners, New Mexico
Four corners is a unique area located in western New Mexico. It has something for everyone with high deserts, mountains, and canyons. The rides here are amazing and will take you through stunning scenery. New Mexico is also one of the most epic road trip driving destinations, so you will enjoy both the journey and the destination.
These places are the best springtime off-roading destinations in the US and would be great choices to soak up the beautiful weather and relax. From California to New Mexico, one of these spots is your new favorite trail. Happy planning!
