North of Amarillo near Fritch, the Lake Meredith National Recreation Area has dirt biking 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. The 275 acre Blue Creek Bridge ORV Area is more remote and much drier than the Rosita ORV Area, with plenty of hill climbs and cliffs.
To reach the dirt biking trailhead for the Rosita ORV Area 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, Rosita ORV Area is the 17th most popular dirt bike trail of all 44 dirt biking rides in Texas.
