  • UTV Trail Etiquette
    Pull over to the right and ride slowly for any approaching riders. Give yourself plenty of following distance to ensure adequate stopping. Understand and obey all MN Off-Highway Vehicle Regulations and local ATV ordinances. Maintain a speed of less than 30 mph on all County or Township Road connections Follow posted speed limits if less than 30 mph. Yield for all pedestrians, and slow down in residential areas. Practice “Ride Sober” and hold off using any alcohol or chemicals that affect your driving abilities. We refuse the right if you are impaired and no refund will be issued Wear your seat belt if equipped. Stay on the Trail, and on far right of on all township & county roads. Wear the proper gear. Do not damage gravel roads. Doing donuts on the road increases road maintenance costs Do not jump driveway approaches, yield when crossing a driveway approach. slow down - speed and reckless driving is the leading cause of accidents, roll-overs and fatalities. Please help us make this a safe and fun ride every time!
