10. Does my vehicle have to be approved before I can participate in trail runs?
Vehicles that plan on joining in on EVENT-ORGANIZED TRAIL RUNS will be subjected to a pre-trail checklist before they participate in the run. This is not a comprehensive safety list but a tool to help eliminate obvious potential risk factors. If your vehicle does not meet the requirements, you will be asked to address the issues before joining in on the event-organized trail runs. Please click HERE to view our Pre-Trail Checklist.

SCARR is a Land Rover event, organized by a Land Rover Club. However, unlike
years past where we have had a closed event, this year the park is open to
the public so all vehicles are welcome!
12. Do I need a Texas OHV sticker?
Yes, all OFF-ROAD vehicles must display a current Texas Parks and Wildlife OHV sticker while in the park. The sticker is required by state law and enforced by game wardens at all parks that accept state grants. As a courtesy to patrons, the BMRA office maintains a supply of stickers for $17 each. More information regarding the Texas Parks and Wildlife OHV Sticker Program is available at Texas Parks and Wildlife.
