How To Find Good ATV Trails - A Guide
Buying an ATV Map
The place to look for an ATV map would be a gas station, a sporting goods store or even a bookstore. When those places don’t even have an ATV map, then it might be a clue that there aren’t many trails nearby. Don’t give up though. Ask a few friends and see if they have ever ridden the trails. There might not be trails in your backyard, but there could be hundreds of miles of trails if you drive an hour north. Since ATV trails aren’t on the road, it is hard to know exactly where they are without a map. You might be closer to a lot of trails than you had originally thought!
Planning a Trip
If you are a novice to the world of ATV riding, then you need to do a little planning before you head off down the road with your dirt bike. It’s not just as simple as getting the permit and taking off down the road. You might want it to be and maybe it can in the future, but for the first few trips you take there will be some other planning required.
Take stock of the equipment you have. Do you have all of the equipment that is required by law in order to be safe and legal on the road? Do you have the minimum number of helmets for each ATV? Don’t just jump on the road and assume you can buy them when you get there, because there might not be a store that sells the items you need. And if you get all the way there and don’t have access to the right equipment, your trip will all be for naught.
In addition to the gear you need for the road, what else do you need for your trip? Are you staying overnight? Do you have camping equipment? Make sure you have the equipment you will need to sleep and eat. If you plan to eat out, that’s fine. But remember you get dirty on the road and might not be allowed in to a few establishments if you are tracking in mud with you. Have some provisions for snacks and at least a basic meal in case you don’t have the time to head in for a real meal in the town.
