Default ?Rock crawler track?

Does anyone know of plans or blueprints for a rock crawler course? Is it just a big pile of rocks that your truck tries to conquer or is it a planned out course? What would be the dimensions of a good sized course? My family just got a house and said I could build one in the backyard[>:].


Thanks for your input and comments.

I have this old pile of dirt from when they were building my house I told them to just leave it there I left it alone for a year or two and now it is a scale course it has all kinds of trails through it some of them still need work.All in all it is about 50ft by 20ft.I also used some of the dirt for a track i also built for my evader and mt2.

just get somewhere suitable for your rock crawling needs then buy some cheap pylons and partially burry them so they dont get knocked over or blown away from the wind.them place them in a obstacle course type pattern and then you got yourself a track.

thats not nearly as cool as owning your own track and quarry rocks are generally to big for R/Cs or at least they are around here.

If you want to build a curse just keep in mind your experience level and the type of truck you have. Also remember how many people will be on the track at once.
