Rider Responsibility

UTV Riding is an adventure sport and involves risks on the part of the participant. We cannot be responsible for personal injury or lost or damaged articles. We require that you acknowledge these risks by reading and signing a liability release prior to departure. All riders must have signed the liability release form prior to renting a machine. If machines are used on state and federal lands renters are required to know and abide by all state, federal and private property guidelines and regulations. DO NOT ride on any private property or drives. DO NOT ride in ANY creeks. Doing so may result in revocation of rental agreement with NO REFUND.

Obey all posted signs. Do not ride faster than posted speed limits. Know and abide by all local rules and state and local laws. Do not ride out of designated areas; respect our wilderness.
