With its smooth, sandy surface, you’ll find yourself easily ripping through the trails at a high speed. But remember to always ride responsibly! 

2. Beason’s ATV Park, Fort Payne, AL

Beason’s offers a variety of surfaces, some smoother areas for novice riders and some more heavily-wooded spaces for the experts. The coolest part about this park? While there are designated trails, riders are invited to create their own. As long as you stay within the property, you can explore as you please. Admission is $10. 

3. Minooka Park, Jemison, AL

This OHV park boasts “Miles of freedom, minutes away,” according to its website. This park is situated in the geographical center of Alabama.
