Are YOU Ready to Off-Road

THIRD…. Know your trails. There are so many ways for you to find a trail….Apps, Guide books, group pages on social media and just plain old exploring. Many trail heads have signs and markings letting you know the levels of the trail… They are called Trail Rating. One of the most important things before you hit a trail is knowing how to read the signs of the trail head and the markings on them before you enter. Depending on what area you are in, there are different ways a trail head is marked. If you don’t know the difference between the trail ratings, there are many websites and books that you can look up that will explain what they mean. Some trails will give you a rating of 1-10, others will give you Diamonds and some have different color markings. One fact that I have learned is…trails are always changing. Depending on how often the trail is traveled, or mother nature deciding to come in and change it herself. Trail conditions, and difficulties can literally change overnight. If you come to an obstacle that you don’t feel comfortable navigating DON’T be afraid to turn around. You already know what’s behind you so if it’s safer to turn around then risk an obstacle you are not ready for…
