They are a great place to learn the basics of 4-wheeling. If you're new to off-road riding, you should try to find a 4-wheel drive club in your area. You will want to become familiar with the right way to 4-wheel, including trail etiquette and safety. Organized club rides give you an opportunity to improve your off-road driving skills. You might learn about some new trails that you didn't know existed, and you might even have access to some you wouldn't have been able to gain entry to on your own.
Club membership opens many doors for 4-wheelers.
So you'll have others to go 4-wheeling with. You should never venture out into the backcountry by yourself. When you are part of a club, it's easy to find someone who wants to go out and ride.
We can accomplish more together than alone. Most clubs are active in their communities, and almost all clubs are helping to fight road closures as well. Club activities help to improve the image of all 4-wheelers, which benefits our sport overall.
