TRAIL POLICY

The following Trail Policy is adopted by the members of PA Jeeps for the protection of the
members, the environment, our vehicles and the safety of all. The Club intends to travel a
diverse selection of trails; therefore the difficulty of the terrain traveled cannot be determined in advance.
The possibility of damage to your vehicle exists when traveling rough terrain, please make your
trail choice carefully.
Non-members are welcome to join us for one green/blue trail ride before deciding to become a member. (belonging to this forum does not make you a member of the PA JEEPS CLUB)
