Safety, Etiquette, and Enthusiasm
Every operator is an ambassador of ATV safety, etiquette, and enthusiasm. Some key safety tips to keep in mind include:
- Inquire with the land manager for your designated trail about weather conditions and to ensure access is still available.
- Dress appropriately (including protective gear).
- Never ride alone, no matter what.
- Notify someone of your plans, route, estimated departure and return.
- Carry water and snacks.
- Have functional knowledge of basic on-the-trail repair tools (including tow strap) and first aid.
- Carry a cell phone and/or two-way radio.
- Carry a GPS, map, or compass.
- Pack an emergency blanket.
Protect Oregon's fragile ecosystem and only ride on designated trails to minimize impact to sensitive areas. Familiarize yourself with trail signs including the level of difficulty. Ride your ATV (with lights on at all times) on road open for public use. Always monitor your speed as you may encounter loggers, construction, or cattle! Wear bright clothing and know hunting schedules in your designated area. Do not purposefully harm or harass people, critters, or the natural terrain. And never litter. Be sure to wash your clothes and ATV after each ride to minimize the transport of weed or invasive plant infestation.
