North of Amarillo near Fritch, the Lake Meredith National Recreation Area has ATV trails. The area is divided into 2 sections, Rosita ORV Area and Blue Creek Bridge ORV Area. The Rosita ORV Area has plenty of challenge with sand and hill climbs through diverse terrain.
To reach the ATV riding trailhead at Lake Meredith from Amarillo, head north on SR136 for 30 miles.
Contrasting spectacularly with its surroundings, Lake Meredith lies on the dry and windswept High Plains of the Texas Panhandle in a region known as Llano Estacado, or Staked Plain. Lake Meredith was created by Sanford Dam on the Canadian River and now fills many breaks whose walls are crowned with white limestone caprock, scenic buttes, pinnacles, and red-brown, wind-eroded coves. Above lies the mesquite, prickly pear, yucca, and grasses of arid plains. And up the sheltered creek beds stand cottonwoods, soapberry, and sandbar willows.
Note: Blue Creek and Rosita Flats was set aside for all-terrain vehicle recreation. Riders must stay within the cutbanks of Blue Creek and Rosita and below 3000 ft. elevation.
Overall, Lake Meredith - Rosita ORV Area is the 8th most popular ATV riding trail of all 23 ATV trails in Texas. Several of the better atv trails are nearby Lake Meredith - Rosita ORV Area including Lake Mackenzie, Lake McClellan OHV Trails, Canadian River and Lake Meredith - Blue Creek Bridge Area.
