Gulches Off Road Park
Why Should I Visit Gulches?
First and foremost Gulches is a family park. Kids of all ages from 4 to 94 can enjoy the atmosphere of camaraderie in our park and with our fellow off roaders. Our trails are created to excite even the newest to our hobby. Easy trails allow one to bypass around every advanced trail in the park to either continue or to stop and watch the big rigs play.
We are open every weekend of the year, weather permitting, allowing for off road enjoyment through all four seasons.
All first timers get an explanation to the trail map and signs. Through our group of rangers we try to guide every new offroader though the park for a thorough orientation.
Our primitive camp sites are clean, quiet and private with facilities open 24 hours when campers are on site. A cabin is available for those less inclined to sleep on the ground.
This truly is a park for all size rigs and all driver skill levels.

How big is the park?
Unlike Tellico and some of the large state run ORV Parks Gulches is privately owned and operated. It is a small park of just under 80 acres. However don’t let its size fool you it has everything you might be looking for from mud to sand to hill-climbs, off camber switch backs and rock gardens. It has been called the Disneyland for 4x4’s.
Are the trails all for advanced rigs and skill level?
No. The Park is set up like a ski resort with all “runs” clearly marked with a degree of difficulty. We have easy, intermediate, advanced, double advanced and triple advanced runs. All easy and intermediates get you to all the advanced runs to watch the “big rigs”.
Is alcohol allowed?
Can I bring my pets?
On a leash and attended at all times, yes.
How old must I be?
You must be 18 or older or have a parent or legal guardian there to sign a wavier for you. No Parent then no entrance. You can, however, pick up a copy of the paperwork and have your parent or guardian sign it in front of a notary and we will keep it on file for you so you only have to do it once.
What kind of vehicles can ride on the park?
We allow any 4x4, ATV, or trail bike.(No 3 wheelers) Please realize damage can occur on any or all of our trails. Show pieces may get scratched.
