How it will Work:

  • Registration for Rides is on a “First Come-First Serve Basis”
  • Registration Check-In will be held at the Marysvale City Park on Wednesday from 7:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
  • Riders will be invited to the Marysvale City Park  at 7:00 am Wednesday through Saturday
  • Riders who did not do pre-registration can register at 7:00 am on Wednesday
  • All Riders will be required to sign a liability release/waiver prior to participating in any rides
  • Please note that rides with 5 or fewer registered participants may be cancelled or combined with other rides.   The Jamboree will make every effort to notify you of which rides have been combined with other rides or cancelled.

Things to Note:

All trails/roads used by the Jamboree are understood to be two-way.  Even on narrow trails, you may meet someone coming on an ATV/UTV from the opposite direction.  Watch carefully for oncoming traffic on all roads and trails.  Remember the Three K’s – Kind, Kourteous & Kareful.

The Jamboree rides will provide direct contact with the elements and place physical demands on both participants and machines.  Those with medical conditions or certain other physical limitations should carefully consider those demands.  Each participant must be responsible for his/her own health and well-being along the trail.  We will never be more than a few hours from the nearest town, but medical assistance is not always available in smaller towns.  If you have particular medical or physical limitations, but decide to go anyway, please make your guide aware of your condition.

We emphasize that the ATV trails are not intended for high speed riding but rather for conservative, safe riding.  It is necessary that all participants stay with the group, remaining behind the front guide at all times, for the safety and peace of mind of the entire group.  ATVs/UTVs must be in good mechanical conditions, tuned up and properly jetted for high altitude endurance rides.

Also, please note that unless otherwise stated in the ride description, you will need to provide your own lunch while on the ride.

Ride Difficulty Definitions:

Beginner:        These rides are almost wholly on dirt roads in the Paiute system.  Some of the beginner rides may include short moderately steep sections or switchbacks.
Intermediate:    Intermediate rides generally include some road and ATV trail portions with some steep, rough or challenging trails.  A ride may also be intermediate in nature due to its length.
Advanced:        Advanced rides will generally include portions that are steep, rough, and otherwise difficult to maneuver.  In some cases, rides are listed as advanced because of the length of the ride.

Ride Schedule

A Self guided Ride to our Lua will depart around 3:00 on Wednesday, this will be self guided.

Friday is Event Day at the City Park and Open Riding Day

2 thoughts on “About the Rides”

  1. I am confused by contradictions on the website. Under FAQ it is stated that if you need to change rides, it should be done before Aug 1 but the information on the ride descriptions implies all ride sign up is at registration on Aug. 8. Do we need to pre-select our rides? If so how do we do this as there was no form on the registration page, nor on the ride description page.
