Let's walk through ATV Safety, a few ATV How To's, and some frequently asked questions.
Wondering how to dress for ATV Riding? Always wear a DOT-compliant helmet, goggles, long sleeves, long pants, over-the-ankle boots, and gloves when riding ATVs. Protective gear is a must when off-roading.
Never ride on paved roads except to cross, when done safely and permitted by law – another vehicle could hit you.
ATVs, UTVs, and Dirt Bikes are not street legal, that's why Throw Dat Dirt is here in Scotlandville, Baton Rouge - to give you a save haven to ride, rev your engines, and kick up some mud!
Remember to never ride under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Never carry a passenger on a single-rider ATV, and no more than one passenger on an ATV specifically designed for two people.
Supervise riders younger than 16; ATVs are not toys.
Ride only on designated trails and at a safe speed.
Take a hands-on ATV Rider Course and the free online E-Course. Visit ATVSafety.org.

Your safety is our top concern, so helmets are required. With COVID considerations, we encourage our visitors to bring their own helmets. We offer helmets for rent and for sale. We clean and sanitize helmets before and after each rental. We encourage frequent visitors to purchase a DOT compliant helmet for personal use.
Reservations are required for access.
Failure to return a rented ATV within the allotted rental time period will result in additional charges of $1.00 per minute charged to the credit card on file, starting after the first 10 minutes past due time.

Our damage deposit is $350.00. If the repair estimates are less than that, we credit the difference back to your credit card, if it is more than that we charge you more. You are held responsible for any damage to the ATV in your care. We hate it when this happens and encourage all our riders to ride responsibly.
