Here are our general trail guidelines and etiquette:
Remember to Tread Lightly! at all times. Leave no trace. Bring everything out that you bring in. Anytime you are on a trail you are an ambassador for off-roading. Act accordingly.
You are responsible for the vehicle behind you — if they stop you should also stop, alerting the rest of the group if necessary.
Travel only on obvious trails — if a trail seems questionable, stay off of it.
Do as much as possible to stay on the trail if you encounter someone moving in the opposite direction, backing up if necessary.
Do not litter, and pick up litter left by others whenever possible.
Larger groups coming in the opposite direction will have the right of way, though if we are the larger group and if it’s easier for us to let them pass we should do so.
Obey all signs.
Leave gates as you found them. Closed gates are ok to pass through, but need to be re-closed.
One full-sized spare tire is required along with a decent tire patch kit
You must have extra food and water for each person in your vehicle.
Bring additional clothing as necessary. Be prepared for any type of weather.
A CB radio or two-way radio is a trail requirement; ham is preferred
