ATV Trail Safety Tips

Things to take and to do before you leave
Good idea to Copy and Print this section - carry in ATV
Remember...No Alcoholic Beverages On Federal Land


1. WINTER...Dry clothing Warm coat,gloves,shoes,socks,pants,shirt, blanket in a water proof bag.
1A. SUMMER....Ice packs - Light Clothing- NO SHORTS- Light Color Clothes - Absorbent Type Clothes
2.  Extra gas & oil,air pump and tire patch kit, spark plug(s) plugs are known to go bad new or old have a extra!!!
3. First aid kit including personal medicine!!!
4. Extra food & water!!!
5. Some sort of location device...GPS and good map of area.BRING CELL PHONE and FRS or HAM RADIO
6. A good set of rain gear.
7. Flash light, light sticks or some dependable light source.
8. Make sure your OHV is ready- check oil,fill gas tank,tire pressure,coolant level,steering linkage,just be sure its safe.
9. Pay attention to the route you take (No Trail Markers Permitted) so you can follow it back if needed. GPS unit really helps a lot here.
10.Never ride alone!!!!!!.........BUDDY SYSTEM!
11.Let some one know where you are going and what time to expect you back. Notify family ~ oAAC~ you will be in the area. Some trails are not frequented as much so let others know the trails you will be on.
12. Know the state regulations in which you ride. NO STATE ROAD RIDING. Polk County permits ATV's on county roads when traveling from trail to trail......Give Right - of - way to Licensed vehicles. Pull to Right - Stop - let vehicle pass
12B.......INFORM LOCAL CLUB where you plan to ride and how many in party........club may help on the ride.....or a call for assistance will be much faster                                      Edited by R. Brooks

The Pine-Bluestem Project is an effort by the USDA Forest Service, Ouachita National Forest, to restore approximately 155,000 acres of public forest land to conditions that existed in historical times. These public lands are located in western Arkansas on the Poteau, Cold Springs, and Mena Ranger Districts.

America’s Top 26 Greatest ATV Destinations
Destinations, East, Midwest, West — By ATV Mag on June 17, 2009 at 12:00 pm

At about 3.79 million square miles, the United States is a vast nation — the world’s third largest by land area. The diversity of our people defines us, but our world-beating OHV trails are pretty magnificent, too. We American off-road riders have an all-you-can-eat buffet of terrain choices available for the taking —deserts and dunes of the southwest, towering peaks in the Rocky Mountains, dense forests and the countless lakes of the Midwest, stunning views from atop the Ozark Mountains and the colossal riding areas of the rolling Appalachians.

Our American history of conservation and outdoor adventure has preserved land for every purpose — wildlife refuges, plant conservation, camping, hiking, prairie restoration, city parks and National Forests comprising about 8.5 percent of our total land area.

"As good as we have it, recent legislation like the Northern Rockies Ecosystem Protection Act has put a bull’s eye on drastically reducing lands available to human recreation. Our view is that getting out there on sustainable, properly managed trails is an essential way for people to explore and learn to appreciate our natural environment."

So what are you waiting for? It’s the season, and trails are open — get out and ride! Here are some suggestions to get you started — our list of 26 of the greatest ATV riding areas in the country.

FAVORITES


Ouachita and Ozark National Forests
These two distinct forests are located in western Arkansas in the beautiful Ozark and Ouachita Mountains, and both offer visiting riders top-notch riding and access to many large lakes, hillside views and streams that dissect the region.

The Ouachita includes the Fourche Mountain Trail and Wolf Pen Gap trails, while the Ozark National Forest has the Mill Creek and Brock Creek trails. An ice storm in January left half of the Ozark’s trails closed. Call ahead for closure information.
USDA/USFS have the New Travel Mgt Rule out now....Guess What....NO CROSS COUNTRY ATV Riding will be allowed and Wolf Pen Gap ATV Trails loosing some too....Get on the "wagon" the "fence position" won't help and get very involved to STOP this action -  the MVUM is Published or loose your right to recreate in OUR - The PEOPLE's forest........too late....done deal.!

What makes it great?
Camp out in the Wolf Pen Gap ATV Trails, cook up some breakfast over the fire and then hit the mountain trails — yee haw!

Hatfield-McCoy Trails (Not affected by USDA/USFS MVUM)
With one of the largest trails systems in the U.S., West Virginia’s tremendous Hatfield-McCoy system is comprised of more than 900 miles of trails divided into six individual segments, with more trails coming on line every year.

Located in delightfully rural, unconventional areas, each of Hatfield’s six chunks offer some of the best ATV riding you’ll find — easy high-speed trails, challenging technical segments, incredible valley views and many areas open to UTV traffic, as well.

What makes it great?
Visit during National Trail Fest (October 8-12) for mud bogging, drag racing, poker runs, entertainment, thousands of dollars in giveaways and factory demo rides, on top of the already superb trails on the system.
Contact: Hatfield-McCoy Trails, (800) 592-2217; Hatfield-McCoy Trails Website This Advocate highly endorses this facility.

Ocala National Forest
Smack dab in the middle of central Florida, the Ocala National Forest is one of the most popular ATV riding areas in the state, with 35 miles of ATV and UTV routes and trailheads at Big Scrub, Wiregrass and Lake Delancy. In an effort to encourage riders to appreciate the sub-tropical scenery and wildlife, most trails are designed for slow-speed riding.

Ocala National Forest is the oldest national forest east of the Mississippi River and the southernmost forest in the continental U.S. The surroundings include longleaf pine and wiregrass vegetation, sandy trails and the Big Scrub, which is the largest contiguous block of sand pine scrub in the world.

What makes it great?
Come for the riding. Slow down and stay a while for the wildlife and unique, imperiled ecosystem.
Contact: Ocala National Forest, (352) 625-2520; Ocala National Forest Website




Pacific

Imperial Sand Dunes
Perhaps the most famous off-road destination in the country, and one of the most popular riding areas in the world, the Imperial Sand Dunes (frequently called Glamis) of Southern California near the Mexican border includes approximately 118,000 acres for off-highway vehicles like ATVs, dirt bikes, sand rails, side-by-sides and trucks.

Riding the Imperial dunes for the first time is daunting, with difficulty ranging from easy to white knuckles. Getting lost is a concern, as the terrain is always morphing, and the scenery blends together. The payoff is riding in an endless desert paradise seemingly designed exclusively as a high-speed ATV riding oasis.

What makes it great?
Race up Oldsmobile Hill, carve sand bowls and jump dune faces by day, camp in the sand or cross the border for some nighttime excitement in Mexico. One-and-a-half million annual visitors can’t be wrong!
Contact: El Centro Field Office, (760) 337-4400; Imperial Sand Dunes Website

Mojave Desert
A spectacular getaway for residents of the Southwest, and anyone looking for a change of pace, the Mojave Desert in California contains some of the greatest high desert riding in the country. Terrain varies from enormous valley stretches to mostly treeless hillsides that bring riders thousands of feet above the desert floor.
Don’t let the extreme weather scare you off. Springtime in the Mojave is particularly delightful, as the desert is bursting with life and blanketed by bright patches of wildflowers.

What makes it great?
Park at Jawbone Station, about 100 miles northeast of Los Angeles on Highway 14, and explore the expansive Jawbone OHV Area. Don’t miss Randsburg, an old mining town that’s a great spot for photos, lunch and American Old West charm.
Contact: Jawbone Off-highway Vehicle Open Area, (760) 384-5400; Mojave Desert Website

Mount Hood National Forest
There’s a reason you periodically hear of exploring hikers trapped on Mount Hood in Oregon — the view and extreme high-altitude experience is worth a little risk. If you go by quad, and stay on the marked trail system, you can get a similar thrill without having to pack and carry camping gear, and you’ll probably make it out alive at the end of the day.

Mount Hood is incredibly beautiful, and the above-the-clouds (in some cases) ATV trails offer riders great variety and make for a very amusing and scenic ride. This is dream-like riding on a grand scale.

What makes it great?
Just getting to the trails can be an experience, with winding roads that spiral into the clouds. The view on the way up is spectacular, and the area has many other destinations for traveling riders.
Contact: Mount Hood National Forest, (541) 467-2291; Mount Hood National Forest Website

Oceano Dunes SVRA
Located along the beautiful Pacific coast in Southern California just north of Santa Barbara, Pismo Beach’s Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area is a popular ATV destination for sand dune riding right on the ocean coast.

Formerly known as the Pismo Dunes, Oceano is a geologically unique location. The prevailing ocean winds create uncommon riding conditions, but all riders must exercise extreme caution in spotting dangerous slipface drop-offs.

What makes it great?
Oceano Dunes SVRA also offers swimming, surfing, fishing, camping, clam fishing and hiking in addition to its dunes — the most extensive coastal dunes remaining in California.
Contact: Oceano Dunes District Office, (805) 773-7170; Oceano Dunes SVRA Website

Ocotillo Wells SVRA
As California’s largest State Vehicular Recreation Area (SVRA), Ocotillo Wells has more than 80,000 acres of desert that’s open to off-highway exploration, which is a gargantuan amount of riding possibilities. Even better, Ocotillo is affordable: no fees are collected for camping or day use, and camping is permitted for up to 30 days a year — so stay a while!

Key attractions include the eroded Blow Sand Hill, the 200-foot-high Devil’s Slide, Barrel Springs sand dunes, the unusual Shell Reef and Pumpkin Patch sandstone concretions.

What makes it great?
The freedom of desert riding meets the educational value of geology class.
Contact: Ocotillo Wells SVRA, (760) 767-5391; Ocotillo Wells SVRA Website

Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area
Like no other place on the planet, the Oregon Dunes bring fantastic dune riding, the Pacific Ocean and pine trees together in one remarkable spot. The dunes start at the sea and, at points, stretch two miles inland and reach up to 500 feet above sea level.

The continent’s largest expanse of coastal sand dunes, approximately half of the Oregon Dunes are open to motorized vehicles. Campgrounds, staging areas and several annual events make this a top ATV destination.

What makes it great?
Pacific Northwest residents have everything within a day’s drive: snow, mountains and the ocean. No place sums this up better than the Oregon Dunes NRA — one of the most striking, unusual riding places open to public riding.
Contact: Siuslaw National Forest, (541) 750-7000; Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area Website

Mountain

Carson National Forest
Home to some of the finest mountain scenery in the Southwest, the Carson National Forest in New Mexico encompasses 1.5 million acres and has an elevation range from 6,000 to 13,161 feet, plus a wide range of animal inhabitants, like mountain lions, bighorn sheep and elk.

Check out the Red River area, which has many expertly maintained trails designed just for ATVs and fabulous scenery. With the big changes in elevation, riders should prepare for similarly drastic temperature changes.

What makes it great?
Red River is an ATV-friendly town. Fraternize with the locals, hit the mountain trails and find the high-elevation lakes.
Contact: Carson National Forest, (575) 758-6200; Carson National Forest Website/

Elko, Nevada
Tucked away in northeastern Nevada lies Elko, a lively little city with endless scenery and countless miles of beautiful trails taking riders way up into the area’s rugged hills. When the riding’s done, check out the otherworldly Lamoille Canyon about a half an hour east of town to see the vanishing glaciers.

Elko County has about 300,000 miles of trails and roads to choose from. We enjoy the Ruby Mountains southeast of Elko that lead to Green Mountain, which approaches 8,000 feet in elevation.

What makes it great?
Visit northeastern Nevada during the Elko ATV Jamboree every June, where you can ride with visitors who come from many states away to ride the area’s trails. It’s a fun event, and a great time to tag along with guided rides for a hassle- and map-free trip.
Contact: Elko Convention and Visitors Authority, (800) 248-3556; Elko, Nevada Website

Grand Lake, Colorado
Way up in the mountains, at 8,367 feet above sea level, is Grand Lake, Colorado — the headwaters of the Colorado River. Located right next door to the Rocky Mountain National Park and the Arapaho National Forest, Grand Lake has become a haven for outdoorsmen, summertime vacationers, campers, hikers, snowmobiles and ATV riders.

There are more than 100 miles of ATV trails in the Grand Lake area, all with scenic mountain views of some of Colorado’s highest peaks — from the Three Lakes region to the Continental Divide. The town of Grand Lake has rustic architecture, a historic boardwalk and more than 60 shops to peruse.

What makes it great?
The riding is great, but there’s much more to do in Grand Lake: hike in the Rocky Mountain National Park, go boating, fishing, tubing on the lake, or horseback riding in the hills, to name a few.
Contact: Grand Lake Area Chamber of Commerce, (970) 627-3402; Grand Lake, Colorado Website

Hieroglyphic Mountains
Just 35 miles northwest of Phoenix, Arizona’s Hieroglyphic Mountains offer a hypnotizing and peaceful slice of low desert riding with gigantic Saguaro cactus arms reaching into the Sonoran Desert sky.

ATV terrain includes sand washes and rocky rugged trails, hill climbs and boulder-strewn descents. A 22-mile connecting loop intersects other OHV routes: Lake Pleasant to the east, Wickenburg to the west and Prescott National Forest to the north.

What makes it great?
There are no actual Egyptian hieroglyphs here, but ancient residents left behind petroglyphs, or rock carvings, that have been found in the area.
Contact: Hassayampa Field Office, (623) 580-5500; Hieroglyphic Mountains Website

Idaho Panhandle
Somewhere in the outskirts of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, is ATV paradise — tall lodgepole pine trees, sapphire mountain lakes, clear valley streams and beautifully maintained trails that are part of the Canfield Mountain Trail System.
What’s great about many of the trail systems in northern Idaho is that they are connected to form a network. Whether it’s a gravel road connection or by dedicated trail, it’s nice to be able to ride a wide area without having to trailer from place to place.

What makes it great?
From Bonners Ferry, near the Canadian Border, south through Coeur d’Alene and east to Wallace is one of the greatest, most beautiful stretches of mountain riding in the United States. Check out the High Mountain ATV Jamboree near Wallace July 13-18.
Contact: Visit Idaho, (208) 334-2470; Idaho Panhandle Website

Paiute Trail
There’s something about central Utah that calms the spirit. Perhaps it’s the lack of people, or the breathtaking and varied scenery in all directions, or maybe it’s that you can relax knowing you’re riding some of the best trails around. South-central Utah’s Paiute Trail is part of an endless, perfectly maintained system that offers true high altitude riding and adventure at every turn.

Riding the Paiute is great in late summer or early fall when the valleys are still green and balmy. Spend a few minutes on the trails, heading skyward, and soon the leaves are turning yellow, orange and red and the air is crisp — amazing.

What makes it great?
Come visit the Paiute Trails during the Rocky Mountain ATV Jamboree September 14-19 where an incredible list of guided rides takes visitors to many points of interest. Ride types include easy and fun bird watching, ghost towns, silver mines, night rides and some intense rock climbing trips.
Contact: Sevier County Travel Council, (435) 893-0457; Paiute Trail Website

Midwest

Chadwick
With 80 miles of riding within Missouri’s Mark Twain National Forest, the trails at Chadwick wind into deep forests and along the tops of ridges, giving visitors a great view of the surroundings. Fun extras include caves, nice trail bridges, mud bogs, steep climbs and generally diverse terrain.

Nearby, nice camping facilities allow riders to make a trip out of it and stay in the forest. As one forum poster said of Chadwick, the trails “range from grandma-style to suicide,” and the local businesses are friendly and helpful.

What makes it great?
Check out some real-life bat caves, do some camping and explore the Ozarks by quad!
Contact: Mark Twain National Forest, (573) 364-4621; Chadwick Website

Coal Creek
Coal Creek is located in eastern Tennessee on the western fringe of the Appalachians — home to many of the country’s most fun riding areas. With 72,000 acres of off-roading, it’s a popular riding area that attracts hundreds of riders on most weekends — ATVs, dirt bikes, side-by-sides and off-road trucks. Trails vary from gravel roads to extreme mountain terrain, adding up to more than 160 miles of riding.

Rushing mountain streams, heavily forested hillsides and winding trails on cliff edges make for a dramatic, elevated riding experience. Other attractions include the Windrock Park Campground, a drag strip, mountain bike trails and a wind power farm.

What makes it great?
Coal Creek is open 365 days a year and 24 hours a day, with big events every spring and fall, so anytime’s a good time to take a road trip to Tennessee.
Contact: Coal Creek Off Highway Vehicle Area, (865) 435-1251; Coal Creek Website

Iron Range Off-Highway Vehicle Recreation Area
Funded and maintained by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, the Iron Range OHV park is about an hour south of the Canadian border near the town of Gilbert and located in northern Minnesota’s rugged mining country — the aptly named Iron Range.

Ride 200-foot-high piles of ore that stretch for 20 miles, and check out the scramble areas, training trails, hill climbs, 4×4 rock crawl and creatively named trails like Wayne’s World and Attitude Alley.

What makes it great?
Abandoned mines like the Iron Range park often leave behind a labyrinth of narrow trails, unpredictable terrain, huge piles of jagged rocks and fields of silt-like tailings, a mining byproduct, which makes a great Midwestern substitute for sand dunes.
Contact: Iron Range Off-Highway Vehicle Recreation Area, (218) 748-2207; Iron Range Off-Highway Vehicle Recreation Area Website

Mud Creek Off-Road Park
When it comes to getting down and dirty, none of the country’s riding areas have anything on the sprawling Mud Creek Off-Road Park in Texas. It’s home to several big mud-themed events, Mudstock and the Mud Nationals, and it’s also a great place to push your quad to its absolute limits.
Aside from the (drag and oval) competition mud bogs, there’s also the “high line” trails area, tons of camping, the unique sand pit riding pond, and the creek run that is a blast when water levels allow it.

What makes it great?
There’s absolutely nothing like the annual Mud Nationals held at Mud Creek — by far the largest ATV event in the country. Go once to see the crazy spectacle, and return the next year to compete in the mud races.
Contact: Mud Creek Off-Road Park, (903) 586-6972; Mud Creek Off-Road Park Website

Northern Wisconsin
Great trails wind through the woods of northern Wisconsin from the Minnesota border east through the towns of Spooner, Hayward, Park Falls and up to Hurley on the border with Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. The northern third of the cheese state is a very ATV-friendly place with connected, well-maintained trails and many vacation-friendly destinations along the way.

A heavily wooded, post-glacial topography, northern Wisconsin has more than 14,000 lakes, many bogs, marshes, rivers and streams, as well as the Nicolet and Chequamegon National Forests with excellent trail systems. Some dual-purpose routes are even open in the winter for a unique riding experience alongside snowmobiles and over frozen lakes.

What makes it great?
While it’s a very rural area, northern Wisconsin has many lakes, resorts and campgrounds that are accessible by the trails for a total vacation by quad.
Contact: Travel Wisconsin, (800) 432-8747; Northern Wisconsin Website


Upper Peninsula of Michigan
Great Lake lighthouses, the mysterious Keweenaw Peninsula, the trail networks near centrally located Marquette and the many connected trails between Ironwood and Iron Mountain in the western end — there’s a lot to do in the rural, often overlooked Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

With its harsh climate, thick forests and unique terrain, the Upper Peninsula is an unusual place. We recommend the Keweenaw Peninsula for its ghost towns, extensive trails and great views of Lake Superior and Copper Harbor.

What makes it great?
The U.P. contains one-third the land area of Michigan, but only three percent of its total population, and it has millions of acres of public land available for off-road recreation. Imagine the possibilities!

East

COMING SOON......ANTHRACITE OHV PARK in Pa. This facility is well underway. Trailheads are being constructed, facilities added, and the communities are ready to welcome YOU.


Black Mountain
There’s a lot of reasons to visit Kentucky: the International Bluegrass Music Museum, the Oscar Getz Museum of Whiskey History, the waterfall-lined Kingdom Come Scenic Parkway, the Mine Portal 31 coal mine tour in Lynch and, best of all, the incredibly challenging trails of southeastern Kentucky’s Black Mountain Off-Road Adventure Park in Harlan County.

You’ll be hard pressed getting your machine over 30 mph on most the trails of Black Mountain, the highest point in the state, but there are places to wind it out and you won’t get bored working your wheeler to its limits on formidable high-country trails.

What makes it great?
Immerse yourself taking in the cultural oddities of southeastern Kentucky. The people are exceedingly friendly, but you’ll see things that’ll raise your eyebrows, like in-home snake exhibits, rural Appalachian culture and shrinking former coal towns that have bygone history to share.

Brushy Mountain Motor Sports Park
Now in its sixth year of existence, the charming Brushy Mountain Motor Sports Park in western North Carolina is a relaxing haven for high-intensity riding tailored toward riders of utility quads, dirt bikes and sport quads.

Located near Taylorsville, BMMS has challenging, one-way trails that allow riders to motor without worrying about oncoming traffic. Its 37 miles of ATV trails (plus an MX track) offer many quick spurs back to the clubhouse, and countless alternate routes to wander throughout the grounds.

What makes it great?
Youth and family trails combined with vigorous rain-broken trails give everybody what they want — fun, easy trails for beginners and jump-filled roller coaster routes for sporty riders.
Contact: Brushy Mountain Motor Sports Park, (828) 635-7766; Brushy Mountain Motor Sports Park Website

Carolina Adventure World
Located within an easy drive of Charlotte, N.C., and Columbia, S.C., Carolina Adventure World is a growing private facility offering more than 100 miles of ATV trails, three MX tracks and an enduro track. There’s also the Blue Sky Zip Line that brings willing participants on a personal thrill ride over the Appalachian hillsides.
CAW aims to be an everything-in-one-stop shop with on-site machine storage, mechanics, camping, machine rentals and food. The trails are fast, fun and vary from wide open and easy to athletic, narrow woods trails.

What makes it great?
Carolina Adventure World is still being expanded, and was built sparing no expense. Expect clean facilities, many trails and some of the nicest trail bridges around.
Contact: Carolina Adventure World, (803) 482-3534; Carolina Adventure World Website

Durhamtown Plantation
Georgia’s Durhamtown Plantation Off-Road Park has 150 miles of one-way trails for dirt bikes, ATVs and UTVs, with nine tracks, a drag strip, mud pit and freestyle park all in one enormous facility. It’s one of the country’s most popular privately owned riding areas, and it’s located in the central pine forests of the state near Union Point.

With cabin and RV rentals, on-site machine rentals and storage, four service bays, a pro shop, bike and skateboarding areas and a restaurant, Durhamtown seeks to be an all-in-one family vacation with amenities and trails to match every member of your riding family.

What makes it great?
With family ties going back to 1793, Durhamtown has had many uses over the years. In the 1990s, part of the plantation was used as a members-only hunting resort. Today 150 miles of one-way trails on 4,000 acres are available for OHV use.

Jackman-Moose River
Explore one of the remotest pieces of land in the entire United States and keep your eyes peeled for bear, moose and many other animal residents of the Jackman-Moose River area near Maine’s border with Québec.

The Jackman area itself has more than 250 miles of maintained trails, and the system interconnects with The Forks, Bingham, Rockwood and the Greenville trails for an additional 300+ miles of secluded riding. Most trails are UTV-friendly.

What makes it great?
Northern Maine is a true no-man’s land riding with incredible northern Appalachian scenery and wildlife. You could add on a whitewater rafting adventure in the spring when the water levels are highest.
