If there is one thing Mud Creek is well known for it's the high line area. This is where you find one of the biggest, baddest, nastiest NATURAL mud holes in all of East Texas, AND this is where you find the EPI Endurance Challenge during The High Lifter ATV Mud Nationals.

This competition consists of two-man (or woman) teams wiling to try their skills in the toughest mud-holes in the park. We don't call this the Endurance Challenge for nothing. Teams will start at one end of the high line and make their way down to the marked end and back. Teams will be timed and the winner is determined by "speed" (some past winners have been known to average up to almost 10MPH!!!). Teams may choose to use one or two ATVs for the competition... but at least one ATV and both teammates must cross the finish line to score. Push, Pull, or Drag... anything goes. If the team in front of you abandons a quad... it is considered an obstacle... go around it! If it's stuck... winch from it!!

You never know how it will turn out or who will win!
