Nestled in the Tooele Valley just outside of Salt Lake City, Utah, Miller Motorsports Park is one of the premier motorsports facilities in the world.
The park consists of a 3-mile road course that can be run in four different configurations, and they have recently built an off-road park for those who like to take their motorsport fun away from the asphalt.

Miller Motorsports Park is a state-of-the-art facility, and when these guys decide to do something they always build it to a very high standard. The off-road park is no different.

The park is man-made and it started as a completely flat piece of desert on the northwest corner of the facility. Dirt was used to form obstacles and then sprayed with concrete to seal it and give it a rock-type texture. There are also some natural rocks that have been integrated into the park as well.

“You can really get to know your Jeep in a controlled environment, allowing you to test your Jeep to every level it has and find your limitations,” said Miller Off-Road manager John Williams. “It better prepares you for off-roading in places like Moab or other uncontrolled environments.”

Jay from our XtremeTerrain Facebook Fan Page gave a suggestion for those looking for an off roading spot in Texas the Barnwell Mountain Recreational Park. Although I could not find any specific organized event going on, it appears that this park is open pretty much all the time for off roading enthusiasts.

From the Barnwell Mountain Recreational Area’s website:

TMTCs 1st Property was officially opened in July 2000 and has become one of the premiere off-highway parks in the United States. BMRA is one of the largest projects principally using the Recreational Trails Program Grant Process.

Some of BMRAs amenities include Full Shower and Bathroom facilities, pristine port-a-potties throughout the property, on-site food vendor, a well marked trail system utilizing unobtrusive trail signage designed by TMTC Board Member Bobby Beamer. These signs are now being used at many off-road facilities including the Superlift ORV Park in Hot Springs, AR.

This beautiful 1800 acre park located 5 miles north of Gilmer TX on highway 155 is a shining example of what TMTC and its members and volunteers can accomplish. TMTC and BMRA have been recognized by such organizations as Texas Parks & Wildlife, The Blue Ribbon Coalition, Tread Lightly!, National Off Highway Vehicle Conservation Council, The ATV Safety Institute (ASI), American Motorcyclist Association, United Four Wheel Drive Association, Southwest Four Wheel Drive Association, as well as many regional and state organizations.

Property Location
From Gilmer turn east onto Hwy 155 North (this is a stoplight). Go approx. 5 miles and as you start to climb a hill look for a green sign on the left pointing to the right that says “Barnwell Mountain Recreation Area”. You have to watch for the turn off because it is at the crest of the hill and you will miss it if you are not paying attention. This sign is directly across the Hwy from the entrance. Turn right, go through the gate and up the hill…. you can’t miss it.

6284 State Highway 155 N
Gilmer, TX 75645
(This is the “official” 911 address of the park.)
