About the Trails:  The trails are a blast and difficulty range depends on  conditions. Trails range from easy, passable with stock 4x4, to difficult gullies and hill climbs that will challenge built rigs with lockers.  Many trails go up and down deep ravines, expect rocks, stumps, logs and other natural obstacles that change from year to year.  Your trail leader will guide you to and through the trails, it's up to you to pick your level of fun.

More info and FAQ's:
  • The event is held on farm land; keep you and your vehicle OFF the crops - for us city folks what we think is a grass field could be a crop of alfalfa hay.
  • No Alcohol on the trails, ever.  This keeps it safe for everyone
  • Are you new to four wheel'en? Check our our Tips for Newbies (coming soon)
  • Do I need to pre-register for this trail ride? No need to pre-register - we have plenty of room for camping and trails for all rigs - when you get to the farm, check-in/register and we will get you set up with a similar sizes set of rigs and guide you out to the trails.
  • Whats the camping like? We do have free onsite camping; this is in a field near the trails; no electric or water hookups available.
    - clean port a potty on site
    - single common fire place - great place to hang out at night
    - plenty of space for rigs and tents
    - be courteous to your neighbors - if your going to be louder - just distance your camp from others.
    - the town of River Falls is ~5 miles away - making it easy to run into town for food, gas, or supplies
    - hotels in River Falls if camping is not your thing.
  • Are tire chains allowed? YES they are allowed but not often used. A potential issue is damage to the truck with them on if they were not installed correctly
  • Do I need to air my tires down?  This is highly recommended. Airing your tires to to about 15psi will greatly improve traction.  If you have not aired down and are getting stuck more than others then air down for more traction!
  • TIP: Bring (or purchase) FRS radio's.  We use these at event to communicate between rigs.
  • TIP: Bring along lunch, snacks, and water.
