What To Know

PROPER TRAIL ETIQUETTE/RULES

  • Ride only on designated and signed ORV trails, routes, and areas. We do not rescue on 4 wheeler trails. Check out POLARIS RIDE COMMAND to view the surrounding trails in St. Helen!
  • Remember that designated trails are open to other users. Be courteous to other riders and hikers on the trail.
  • Be aware of two-way traffic, and stay to the right.
  • If you meet bikers, horses, and hikers coming from the opposite direction, slow down, pull over, and yield the right-of-way. Trails are located on STATE LAND. RZR RIPN’ RENTALS is not an ORV park. Please do your research before riding. 
  • Always yield to uphill traffic. Uphill traffic may have difficulty starting again if it stops.
  • Slow down when someone is passing you.
  • If you stop to talk to others on the trail, be polite and remove your helmet. A helmet masks your features and can be intimidating.
  • Be safe and considerate when you stop along the trail. Never stop side-by-side, in the middle of the trail, at the crest of a hill, or around a corner on the trail. Also, never block an intersection. Remember to shut off your engine.
  • Leave gates as you find them, stay off private property.
  • Report downed trees and trail maintenance needs to land managers.
  • Carry out what you carry in. – We often give discounts for trail trash!
