The Evolution of the Trail Ambassador Program

Some of you may have seen how we're getting volunteers together under our Trail Ambassador program. I want to take a few minutes to explain how this system is evolving and is being used to make more trail riding opportunities. It's our hope to provide educational services like this to Trail Ambassadors, members, and the general public.  Over t...

National Forest Week July 8th - 14th

National Forest Week July 8th-14th 2019
 Many of our 4x4 trails, waypoints, routes, and tours are in the national forests. Without them, we'd have far fewer places to enjoy trails. Let's work together to help promote this amazing week with photos in the woods tagged with #NationalForestWeek in our social media.  Most people just don't know that we own the national forests ...

 Over the course of year and a few months, we've set up 2 private riding parks and one that could possibly be a first WI public park by 2019. Our goal is to set up as many trails as possible, public, private, waypoints, you name it. If a RL4WD can do it, we want to make it happen.  We're starting to map public gravel roads, trails, a...

WI Trail and Sticker Program Details

​I was talking to Brian Voss over on the Midwest Overlanding facebook page and it appeared that, since we're running at 150% right now, it's not entirely clear on what the end game is for RL4WDA and trails in Wisconsin. Since I've been doing work like this for most of my life, I sometimes forget that many folks who've never been in a club before ma...

Together we trail, divided we fail.

More trails and parks in Wisconsin, that's the goal. We're not just a social club, we are working daily to get more trails and parks.

​We've had a very productive Summer growing and getting ready to help get more riding trails in Wisconsin. While there is a lot of work ahead of us, the feedback from all the work we've done so far has been very positive. Talking with industry giants to local clubs, we've begun to form or plan to embark on something the RLTV (Road Legal Trail Vehic...
