Emergency services - This is a very remote area. There is limited cell phone coverage. It may be several hours before rescue services will be on site. Be prepared. Make sure you have a tow strap, tire repair kit and basic repair tools.
 
 
Cautions
Travel restrictions - The trails traverse the perimeter of the Conger Mountain Wilderness Study Area which is closed to motorized travel. The remainder of the area is open for motorized travel. However, if you cannot read a map or are not with someone who is familiar with the area it is better to follow the signed route to avoid getting lost. Riders are encouraged to stay on existing roads and trails to prevent unnecessary impacts to the land.
 
Gates - Leave all gates as you find them. If they are open, leave open. Close if closed.
 
Livestock - Do not harass livestock. Slow down and let them get out of the way.
 
Wildlife - Look, but don't disturb.
 
Hunting - A hunting license does not give anyone the right to travel on closed roads or trails. There are no exceptions for game retrieval on public lands.
 
Fire - Check with the BLM office in Fillmore for any open fire restrictions. You will be responsible for any damage and cost associated with a wildfire you cause.
 
Waste - If you packed it in, pack it out. Do not bury trash.
Special equipment needed- Bring plenty of water during the hot summer months.
 
Difficulty Rating as noted and color coded on the PDF and printed versions of the One-Day Ride map.
Easiest (solid green circle) - Gravel or dirt surfaces which are relatively flat and wide. Generally wide enough for an ATV to pass a full-sized vehicle. May be dusty but are relatively smooth throughout with no rocks or roots protruding more than three inches above the surface.
More Difficult (solid blue square) - Loose gravel, sandy, rocky or slickrock surface. May have short sections which are narrow. Can have blind turns, steep or roller coaster grades, minor drop-offs, dust, ruts and frequent changes in riding surfaces. Occasional obstacles may strike the frame.
Most Difficult (solid black diamond) -Rocky surfaces, sharp turns, switchbacks, steep grades, narrow passages, low overhangs, ledges and large rocks. Can be slippery and muddy when wet. May have tree stumps, limbs or other debris. Machines with low ground clearance may strike or high center on obstacles. Some riders may be more comfortable using four wheel drive machines.
Extreme (solid double black diamond) - May be extremely steep and rocky with ledges and drop-offs, narrow switchbacks, boulders and uneven or unbalanced trail surfaces. May be long stretches of loose rock or deep sand on steep grades with extreme side-slopes. Some obstacles will high center most machines. Four-wheel drive is recommended. In some areas it may be necessary to walk machines over or have a helping third hand. These routes require experienced riders with a full array of good riding skills. All users should consider riding abilities and machine capabilities before attempting these routes.
