Arapeen ATV Jamboree and Emery County Recreation District have tried
to take every possible precaution to assist you in having a safe and enjoyable
adventure while you are here. Because of the nature of this particular
sport, it must be understood by every participant that there are inherent
dangers in riding ATV's. The Jamboree, its sponsors and supporters
and public land management agencies cannot be responsible or liable for
any accidents or mishaps, or personal or property damage which occurs during
Jamboree events. By registering for the Jamboree, each rider takes
upon himself personal responsibility for his own safety and well being,
and that of others in his care. A State sponsored rider training course
is offered to every rider who desires such training prior to participation
in Jamboree events. This course is voluntary but is strongly recommended
for new or less experienced riders (Never-Ever and Beginner riders).
Refer to the Jamboree Agenda for course date, time and location.
Riders are required to stay with their groups and follow designated guides.
This will help provide for the safety and comfort of all riders. Guides
will assist the group in determining and maintaining a safe and comfortable
speed and will determine the routes to be followed. We must emphasize
that the Arapeen ATV Trail, the Great Western Trail, and the San Rafael
Swell Trails are not intended for speed. They are intended for
a more leisurely pace which lends itself to the nature of the trails and
the mountainous, often rough terrain. Good judgment and responsible
riding on the part of every rider must be exercised at all times on the
trail. Each rider will be responsible for compliance with the conditions
set forth herein, and for the condition and operation of his or her own
ATV and related equipment, and of his or her own safety and personal protective
gear and that of those in their charge.
Utah State ATV laws indicate that
where trails are located on public lands, and have been properly designated
as open to ATV use, those involved in land management, and organized, permitted
uses on those trails bear no responsibility or liability for accidents which
may happen due to trail use or participation in events involving those trails.
Again we emphasize personal responsibility for safety and well being on
Jamboree personnel have attempted to assign a rating to each event, in
order to help riders determine which events will be within the scope of
their experience and ability, and to avoid those that may be beyond their
abilities. These ratings are not according to any established system,
but have been based only on the experience and personal knowledge of the
guides. A variety of rides have been selected in an effort to
provide events suitable to the abilities and wants of every rider.
If riders have any questions or concerns about the difficulty of any event,
they should ask the guides or other Jamboree personnel prior to joining
with the group. Riders are encouraged to pick the Jamboree rides and
events which suit their individual experience and riding abilities.
