Gordy's Hill OHV Area


The 6,000-acre Gordy's Hill Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) Area is a scenic dirtbike and ATV destination overlooking the Rio Grande Valley and Bosque with a tremendous variety of riding opportunities. It is a primitive location and offers excellent challenges for all experience levels. Gordy's Hill includes deeply dissected canyons, high sandstone and limestone bluffs, terraces, and escarpments. On the higher ridges, there are scenic views of the Rio Grande Valley back to the west. The Quebradas Backcountry Byway traverses the off-highway vehicle area from west to east and then south almost in the middle of the area.


Take Exit 153 (Escondida Exit) off Interstate 25 and follow the east frontage road to the north to Escondido Lake. Head east and pass over the Rio Grande. At Pueblitos (T intersection), turn left onto Johnson Hill County Road and head north and then east for about 1 mile, then turn east and follow arroyo road to sand hill staging area.
