Do I have to drive a jeep to join?

  • No, all 4WD vehicles are welcomed.

I've got a stock jeep, will I be able to participate?

  • The trails we ride range from "very easy" (much of which can be driven in 2WD in a stock vehicle by a novice driver) to "extreme" (requiring highly-modified vehicles, experienced drivers, and spare parts). It's a good idea to contact the trail leader prior to the ride; tell him/her how your vehicle is equipped and what your experience is, and ask for their opinion on the relative difficulty of that trail.

what time do trail rides usually start? how long do they last?

Day rides usually depart for the trailhead from a designated meeting location at 9 a.m.  Please be gassed and ready to go at 9 a.m.  They usually last until early afternoon, depending on trail length and number of vehicles. 

do wives and kids usually participate in trail rides?

  • ARROC is definitely a family-oriented organization! Spouses, kids, and pets regularly participate in many of the events.   There are also numerous ladies in the Club who drive their own vehicles.  Hint: If your family only has one trail vehicle, allow (encourage) your significant other to drive part of the time!

what are the chances of my jeep getting damaged on a trail ride?

  • Although this depends on the difficulty rating of the trail, and how experienced (and lucky) you are, the chance of your vehicle sustaining some form of damage on any particular trail is very likely!  Even on trails rated as "Easy", you can expect scrapes, scratches, dings, dents, and possibly other stuff to happen to your vehicle.  This is not intended to scare anyone off, but our members regularly get questions from guests who want to know how their (fill in your type of vehicle) will do on such and such trail.  And then they get all pissed off when their shiny new (fill in your type of vehicle) accidentally slips off of a rock, hits a tree, and gets a dent!  Off-highway driving (just like highway driving) is associated with a certain amount of risk and there is no way for anyone to determine whether or not you or your passengers will be hurt, and/or your vehicle damaged. You are solely responsible for the safety of yourself, your passengers, and your vehicle.  If you do not feel comfortable with a particular obstacle on the trail, take the by-pass or turn around and go back!  If you are totally adverse to any trail damage whatsoever, don't even bother showing up!
