Motorsport Mountain at Gob Hill
After a coal processing facility in Atkinson closed in 1964, the land sat vacant for more than four decades. Now, Gob Hill in Northwestern Illinois has been developed into an ATV and dirt bike paradise.
Atkinson Motorsports Park bills itself as an ATV lover’s dream, full of trails, mud bogs and climbs. Riders can head to the top of the hill amid more than 200 acres dotted with lakes, hills and valleys, and experience open and unrestricted riding. The park features a stadium-style super-cross track, a motocross track and a kids-only riding area. A perimeter road with gorgeous scenery provides an option for more conservative riders, and the park welcomes overnighters with a campground for RVs and tents.
