Rally In The Pines Self-Guided Rides:

Self-guided rides are for everyone who wants to ride independently and not on a group ride with a group ride leader. All self-guided ride drivers will receive a map with photos and coordinates. Self-guided riders can leave when they want and return when they want. PLEASE, only take your self-guided ride on the day you are scheduled for.

(All of the rides are still pending final approval from the Forest Service.)
Most of the roads and trails in the area have some switchbacks and steep drop offs. None of the rides in the area are for beginners or for people who may be on medication that makes them dizzy or drowsy or have any other physical handicaps that impair their being able to control their machine at all times. The wearing of helmets is greatly encouraged. Having under body protection on your Side X Side on Challenge Rides is a very good idea!
This is the Rocky Mountains! Extra gas should be carried on all Skilled Scenic and Challenge Rides over 75 miles in approved safety gas containers.
No one 17 years of age or younger is permitted to drive on any ride.

Scenic Rides: These rides are at a slower pace on easy Forest Service roads and trails. There
will be many stops along the way for photo opportunities.
Great rides for anyone who wants to
take in all the beauty of the area.

Skilled Scenic Rides: This is our most popular category. These rides will require driving skill to complete. They are longer rides and some of the roads and trails will have some rocky or rutted areas.

Challenge Rides: Not only a beautiful ride, but there will be places along the way that will require technical driving skills. Experienced riders only please.
