High Level is known for its excellent ATV tracks. Winding around and over dunes and hills, through beautiful forests and meadows, along creeks and in open plains, there are hundreds of kilometres of tracks to keep the avid all-terrainer entertained. However, it never hurts to have fun safely, which is why we’ve pulled together some of these top ATV safety tips, so you can enjoy your ride worry-free.
Take Proper Safety Courses
While ATVS seem simple enough, they’re still a powerful piece of machinery that should be used properly. Before you take your vehicle to the trails, make sure you understand how to use it. In addition, take any recommended safety courses with your vehicle so that in the case of an accident or incident, you’re able to handle yourself and your ATV properly.
Use the Proper Equipment
It may sound cliché, but the best advice is always the most given: wear your helmet! Not only will a full-visor helmet keep dust (and bugs) out of your eyes and mouth, it will keep you safe in the case of an accident. Besides, they look pretty cool. In addition, wear any safety pads or riding boots as you see fit, especially if you’re taking your vehicle on more extreme terrain. The proper outfit can make the difference between walking away from an accident or having to call for help!
Stick to the Trails
There are plenty of great trails in High Level, so there shouldn’t be a reason to stray off them. If you do go off the trails, only do so if you’re extremely comfortable with the area or you have a guide—there are hidden marshes and sand-pits that could have you stuck in no time. If you’re planning on exploring new trails, make sure you bring plenty of water and food, as well as survival equipment such as a compass, map, and communications device. ATVs make poor company on a cold and lonely night in the woods!
