Tread Lightly! On Land

Travel responsibly on designated roads and trails or in permitted areas.
Respect the rights of others including private property owners and all recreational trail users, campers and others to allow them to enjoy their recreational activities undisturbed.
Educate yourself by obtaining travel maps and regulations from public agencies, planning for your trip, taking recreation skills classes, and knowing how to use and operate your equipment safely.
Avoid sensitive areas such as meadows, lakeshores, wetlands and streams, unless on designated routes. This protects wildlife habitat and sensitive soils from damage.
Do your part by leaving the area better than you found it, properly disposing of waste, minimizing the use of fire, avoiding the spread of invasive species, restoring degraded areas, and joining a local enthusiast organization.



Unless I am missing something here, TREAD lightly does not preclude the spinning of tires or spraying of mud/water if done in a designated area. The ideals of TREAD Lightly are not to take away any of the fun we look for, but to encourage us to have the fun in a responsible manner.

I have put together quite a few trail rides and have helped educate more than my share of new and old wheelers.

i meant in no way to rain on any ones parade and ironman i did read the whole thread before posting, all i was trying to say is don't be so quick to run off and burn someone at the stake. like others said,some individual giving that video to the athorities just adds fuel to an already intense war, we have got to pick our battles,like the one over Drummond Island and the closings of offroad parks outwest and here in our neck of the roads. i love wheeling as much as the next guy but there is alot of contrdiction that goes on amongst us
