Located around 30 miles north of Birmingham, west of I-65, Stony Lonesome OHV Park has 1456 acres of unique trails that are part of Collman County Parks and Recreation in Alabama. ATV/UTV, dirt bike and rock-crawling trails range from easy, moderate to expert, and many are so steep and gnarly that only Ultra-4 rock racers can climb them. There are 150 miles of trails in very hilly terrain with lots of rock ledges, and whole sections of trail are grouped together for ATVs and UTVs, dirt bikes and mountain bikes, and Jeeps and Ultra-4 4x4s. We went there with Yamaha and had a blast in the YXZ1000R SS Special Edition 2 UTVs modified with GYTR’s Torque-Assist Gearing kit, 30-inch Motoclaw tires and more.

Motocross-style short courses can be connected to the big oval track for longer laps, and the park also holds dirt bike Hare Scrambles rounds on its many trails.


Besides cool trails in deep woods, Stony Lonesome has a short course wide enough for serious UTV racing and several mud bogs for special events like the Dirt Therapy Day and Spartan mud runs. There are also kiosks on the main roads with heliport pads for air evacuation, should someone take a bad hop on the extreme trails. Trails are color-coded for skill levels, with green being easy, blue being moderate and red meaning expert. Most red trails are for 700-horsepower rock bouncers, but we had a blast in the YXZs on #302, 309, 309C, 406C, 411 and others.

Stony Lonesome OHV Park was a hunting club until 2008, but now it’s Alabama’s premier OHV area that’s a regular venue for UTV short-course and rock-bouncing competitions.



Stony Lonesome OHV Park has something going on every month, including rounds of the Southern Rock Racing series, UTV hill-climbs, night rides, 24-hour rides, holiday festivals, Jeep jamborees, RZR Rally Raids, 5K mud runs and SECCA Hare Scrambles.

While the centralized courses are used for short-course and mud racing, the heart of Stony Lonesome is the extensive trail system that makes maximum use of the extreme topography changes.


The OHV Park has a registration headquarters and pro shop, and park admission is $10, $5 for kids ages 6–12, and free for those 5 and under. Night rides are $15 for adults and $10 per child. They even have pavilions for weddings and family functions. Hours are 8:30 a.m.–5 p.m. on Sunday, Monday and Thursday and 8:30 a.m–6 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

Besides the registration building and pro shop, Stony Lonesome OHV Park has plenty of cabins, mobile home units, primitive camping with bath houses and RV hookups. It’s one of four Cullman County Parks and Recreation parks.


Stony Lonesome OHV also has several mud bogs for UTV, ATV and 4×4 mud drags and more, and the park also holds 5K mud runs with foot power.


The OHV park also has several cabins, trailer units, and RV slots with full hook-ups with nightly, weekly and monthly rates, plus tent camping with bath houses. Cabins have two sets of bunk beds, four lockers, mini refrigerators, microwaves, cooling/heating units and bathrooms with showers for $45 a night or $150 a week. Units have two bedrooms, plus a pull-out sofa and central heat/air for $95 a night and $250 a week, while RV slots have water, electric and sewer for $22 a night or $143 a week. Tent camping is $10 a day. The park has a monthly drawing for free T-shirts and weekend passes too.

UTV Rally Raids have been run in past years, and the park holds at least one night ride per month.
