Rider Safety Course
A 4 1/2 hour course in which we teach you to properly ride the ATV. Following completion, you will be certified to ride the ATVs on the trails with the instructors on any open ride weekends.
TREAD Lightly Program
If you have completed the ATV Rider Safety Course, we will teach you how to "tread lightly" on the trails. This can be a day or full-weekend program.
If you have completed the ATV Rider Safety Course, take this opportunity ot learn and work on the trails. With this program you will work on maintaining the trails and develop more that we can use in the future.
We are always looking for help with maintaining the ATVs. If you are able to help with the mechanics of vehicle upkeep - oil changes, batteries, etc. contact Donna Perkins to get involved!
If you have gone through the ATV Safety Rider Course, have your certification, and would like to experience riding ATVs to learn about TREAD Lightly and conservation work while trail riding, please contact Donna Perkins.
