Do you guys have to deal with Native Indian Reserves to access any of the trails? Looking at my Backroads Mapbook there are a ton of reserves in the OK!

Try part of Hunters Range or Mara mtn. Have to look for some trails though, some are hard, some are easy. Spanish lake is pretty nice for mud bogging in the spring.

most of the indian reserves are occupied by people for them to get money from. (most of the trailer parks in winfield, and a bunch of westbank) so i have never had issues so far.

I used to tool around behind the penticton reserve, i'd just drive right through and up the hill. Got caught once by the tribal police and the called me a f*ckin whitie and told me to get lost.
I always liked the back road from summerland to princeton, lots of trails to explore but i dont remember anything too challenging. Well worthy a weekend for exploring and takin in the scenery.

Back of Oliver up Fairview mt is some good wheeling, 3 lakes , good fishing and camping, and best of all my brother in law has 18 acres up there with a shop just in case you break somthing. I think it would be a good place to host a 4x4 weekend.

1992,4-runner 3.0, 5-speed 456 gears welded in the back 3" body lift 15x35x16 wide boggers,nurf bars,fully loaded,leather front to back

There's a sweet hill climb up the top of the power lines on the west side. Very steep and loose. Lots of cool trails up mount Kobau too.

Fairview is another top notch area, and you can find some difficult trails up there. Good huntin in the fall too, deer, bear, grouse and ducks. But there only two lakes, ripley and madden, unless you make it over to the white lake area, then theres sawmill lake. That ones gone downhill quite a bit though.
The ashanola area will always be my favorite, i hope to spend a week backpacking in that area this fall.
