Code of Conduct

1. Use only trails and roads with known provable vehicle rights, and permissions. Always pay all legal fees for trail access.

2. Travel at a quiet and orderly pace. Drive a slow as is practical, and as fast as is necessary.

3. Keep to the defined track. Detour off defined tracks only to pass by an immovable object.

Ensure your vehicle is serviceable prior to use, and confirm all equipment is correctly stowed and tied down before attempting trails.

At all times comply with the requirements of the traffic act and regulations, and observe road courtesy, even when on private land.

6. The use of alcohol by the driver or any of his passengers on or a trail is prohibited. Any one suspected of the use of alcohol before starting a trail will not be permitted to partake in the event.

7. Be critical of your own abilities and equipment. You always have the right to refuse the route or obstacle in our path.

Never commit yourself, your family, or your vehicle to anything or any situation you are not comfortable with. Ask for assistance where needed. Don’t ever feel embarrassed.

9. Be courteous to other trail users - pull over and stop your vehicle for hikers, horse riders, and people walking dogs. Thank anyone who moves over for you.

Keep children under close control, both within your vehicle and outside of it.

11. Guard against all risks of fire. Every care shall be exercised in the lighting and control of camp fires and all fires shall be properly extinguished on leaving an area.

12. Respect local water supplies at all times and prevent any contamination thereof.

Tread lightly.  Make every effort not to damage a trail, or the surrounding environment. Take your litter, and any other you find along the trail, home with you. If possible leave the environment in a better condition than you found it.
