The over 100 miles of trails consist of mainly low effort, family oriented trails.
There are some mud bog areas, woods, fields, railroad beds, bridges and small hills
to climb. There are picnic spots with tables and shelter. All of the trails are
environmentally friendly and we take great measures to ensure they stay that way.
We welcome ATVs and utility machines. Our club is family oriented, and our riders
ride safely and respectfully.

the store for club members.

Our trails are designed for riding on, not racing on. No excessive speed and stickers
must be on the front driver’s side of the machine.
Stay on trails means, stay on trails or stay home. Do not bypass our bridges and
stream crossings by going up and down streams or mud holes.
Do not go around wet holes and make them bigger, it causes more work and expense.
If you do not want your machine to get muddy then it is best to keep it in the garage.
You must try to make work details or work at fund raisers such as Rodeo, Trade Show,
Pig Roast etc.
You will be responsible for at least one club raffle ticket a year, maybe two. Buy
them or sell them.
It is your duty as a Club Member to report any other rider that is not obeying the
Club rules and State laws.
It is your duty to help keep our trails clean and safe. If you see debris on our
trail, such as cans, bottles, cig. packs, etc., pick them up. Report any unsafe
conditions to the Board or line officers, such as Beaver Dams, Flooding, Wash Outs,
Fallen Trees, etc.
Those that do not go by the rules will be brought in front of the Board. Depending
upon the seriousness or the amount of violations, you may be barred from the club.
Loud, tuned or modified exhaust will not be allowed in residential areas such as,
Public roads, churches, villages and private homes and camps. State law requires
