Ready for a challenge? Off-road adventures on an ATV will take your adrenaline levels up a notch. Here are the best places to take your ATV for a wild ride:
California's Rubicon Trail: Meandering through the Sierra Nevada Mountains, this 30-mile stretch of trail is one of the most challenging trails in the world. It’s relatively narrow at some points and you’ll need to cross streams and boulders of varying sizes. Be sure to bring extra supplies and fuel, as it can be difficult to find stores or gas stations along the way. This is a great place for skilled riders looking for an extreme experience, but less experienced riders should not attempt it without help!
Maine's 100 Mile Wilderness Trails: With over 75 miles of trails split between two distinctly different regions - Northern and Central Maine - this network offers both easy exploration and more technical challenges that are perfect for all levels of skill and experience. Plus, you’ll get unique views of Maine's rugged terrain, including rivers winding around hillsides covered in hardwood forests!
North Carolina's Uwharrie National Forest: Looking for a longer route? This trail winds its way through 17 miles of old logging roads so there is plenty of off-roading opportunity here! You'll see pine barrens and glades, as well as stunning mountain views from certain points along the journey. Stop by one of the many camping spots located within the forest to spend some quality time in nature!
Pennsylvania’s Allegheny National Forest: If you're after something a bit easier than Rubicon Trail, this forest has plenty of wide open spaces perfect for crossing lakes or exploring woods full of hemlock trees – no matter what level rider you are. Keep an eye out for wildlife such as deer, raccoons, birds and more!
Utah's White Wash Sand Dunes: A sandy desert landscape awaits at White Wash Sand Dunes in Utah – explore 400 acres with virgin sand dunes with no defined trails so it feels like off-roading in its purest form! The large open space makes it ideal for going fast if that’s your style – just be sure to watch out for designated slow areas where small children may be playing nearby!
No matter which destination you choose, make sure to prepare your vehicle (and yourself!) before hitting the road – wear appropriate protective gear like helmets, gloves and an RZ Mask; bring emergency supplies like flashlights or flares; practice defensive driving techniques; and don't forget food/water if rides will last more than a few hours! When done safely, there's nothing quite like experiencing a thrill on an ATV in nature – happy trails!
