360 immediately north of the train bridge on the west side, south bound side of 360. Break in guard rail. *Land was willed by an avid off road enthusiast to city under the provisions that it can not be developed and to be used for off road vehicles of all types. *I have never seen the access blocked in the last three years I have known about it.

here is an entrance off of euless main st.:



here are a couple pics looking down on some of the trails:





and here is another entrance off of 157(industrial):

the trails were made back in 1968 for motorcross, its the oldest track still around. you can youtube old videos of races in the 60s 70s 80s. i hope it will never be developed on because those trails are awesome. especially if you have 4 wheelers or dirt bikes

I was at the place dallas05taco was on 12-22-2010. It was pretty much dry as a bone. I was alone and still afraid of getting stuck as well. Plus the truck has like 12K miles on it and I do not want to fuck it up. I need baby trails. Call me a puss all you want! Here are some pics.

ive been going to the mosher valley trails for over 7 years now used to go in highschool with my f-150....love the place but have been having so many problems always having access to it cause they are always blocking off entrances and what not so have not been out there for probably almost a year and am having withdraws.....here is my ttora page have a bunch of pics on my profile of the different trails. but if anyone knows of a good entrance and ever wants to go out let me know im off every weekend. if the link doesnt work name is TRD_taco_trucker probably find a couple posts and check my profile that way.






^ is actually under the 360 hwy
PS. these are old pics from about 2-3 years ago so have had some upgrades since then...well lots of upgrades

i spent tha day yesterday out at tha mosier valley trails. the construction crew filled in just about every mud hole there was, i guess they may start building there or something. i didnt go to the 360 trails side, but im sure that was still untouched... there are some big ass bass in some of those ponds out there, so if anyone wants to ever go fishin, hit me up

there is no mud out there at all right now, i dont have 4x4 right now because my actuator went out. you can drive a car out there with no worries, as long as you stay towards mosier valley. 360 trails may be a different story though since i didnt check that out

hell I got an 8k winch, chains, and a tow strap if anyone gets stuck. Hoping that the parts will be in by the end of the weekend and my truck done by next week sometime... so shooting for spring break weekend hopefully. ill throw an update on the repairs when everything comes in....cant wait to get it back and on the trails ready to try out the 4.88's .... Hey Cullen you going to get your actuator fixed?...should try seeing if anyone has one for sale on TTORA, just bought front diff spider gears from a member that worked out great and saved me a lot of money.

Not big on fishing, but I'll go play in the dirt. Stock TRD Off-Road 4x4.
