A couple but not the huge rock crawling area or anything. Only did a little damage. I don't sit very high and don't have real sliders or good skid plates, so anything with rocks larger than my tires were bypassed.

Except one, that chewed the shit out of one of my wheels.

Forgot to ask, and I know I looked for it before but don't know where the link is now, but you mentioned a "sticker" that you need to buy in order to access some of these off road parks. Is that needed for Bridgeport and where can I buy one?

You do need it at Bridgeport, and Gilmer too I believe. Basically any that are on 'public' land, from what I understood. I think I read they work at some out of state parks too.

I got mine at Grubbs Nissan (parts dept). More details here: http://tpwd.texas.gov/state-parks/te...exas-ohv-decal

Agree that Bridgeport is a good day trip. But it’s definitely worth it to take the whole weekend and go to Gilmer

I'm in Runaway Bay (basically Bridgeport) for the next couple of months. My truck is at home in CO, but I'm down for riding shotgun if any of you want to come run trails up here. Hit me up! I'm jonesin' for some off-roadin'.

Are there any mild trails at Bridgeport that I can take an almost stock f150 4x4?

I haven't been there myself, but I assume they have a wide range of stuff, including some really tame trails to get warmed up on. I've also come to realize over the years that a stock truck with decent tires can usually do more than most people expect, depending on driver skill and courage. I'd just stay out of the mud where possible.

I'm debating on whether or not to go up to CO and bring my truck back down, and if I do that, I'll surely go out there a few times. Maybe Gilmer, too.

Gonna be ready for Moab?

Maybe I'll bring the Mrs. out so the womenz can hang while we duck out to the park.. Sounds like a fun Saturday. Or, once in a while you can camp overnight.. Come up and hang, and the women can come out just to camp.

Oh, it will definitely be ready for Moab. Just need a few small things done. Worse case scenario, I’ll be working on it in the snow once I get back home in March, but that’s kinda why I want to bring it down here, so I work on it in decent weather (and on a paved driveway).

Definitely bring Lea and she can hang with Tiff while we go run trails. As much as I want to camp, Tiff won’t be able to because of the baby. Too young to bring her and there’s no way we could both leave her overnight yet.

I want to do this so please count me in. Ruffdaddy, I'm pretty much stock on my FX4 as well, just wheels and tires, and I've been wanting to check this place out.

Been putting off getting my sticker purchased, I'll get it done in the next week. Let's setup a date!

Been awhile since I've been to Bridgeport. Depending on my schedule I may be in.
