The Apache County ATV club is excited to provide trail ride leadership for the 2018 White Mountain UTV Jamboree that is produced and promoted by AZOP. During the four days of the Jamboree there will be a total of 24 trail rides offered. There will be two overnight rides, one to Hannigan Meadow lodge and new this year will be an overnight ride to Reserve NM. There will be two trailered rides each day and three or more non-trailered rides. The trailered rides will go to the Alpine, Big Lake, and Greens Peak areas. The non-trailered rides will stage and depart from the Eagar Recreational Complex area. There will be two different night rides, one on Friday night and one on Saturday night. This year’s rides offer something for all riders. Some rides are long and challenging while others are less challenging. All are scenic in different ways. All rides have a limit for the number of machines. All rides are limited to 20 machines, excluding the two overnight rides. All rides are for enjoying the country and are not for high speed riding. Riders and drivers that wish to travel at high speeds on the many forest trails will be disappointed in the trail rides. Trail ride leaders will travel at a speed that provides the best scenic opportunity to the ride participants and never exceeds legal forest speed limits.
