Jamboree Rules

The rules are designed to make the event safer and more enjoyable for all who attend. They will be enforced.

General Rules


Technical Inspection*

  • General condition tech (steering, brakes on all wheels, lights).
  • Primary elements for street legal status (licensed, current registration, turn signals, rear view mirrors, working lights, exhaust system).
  • Dimension requirements as noted in trail descriptions.

The following items are not required, but it is a good idea to carry them with you, whenever you are on the trail:


Vehicles not meeting minimum requirements will not be allowed on the trail.

*Rimrock trip vehicles will be subject to additional inspection: 6 point roll cage, lockers front & rear, winch, oversized/aggressive tires, CB, spare parts & an experienced driver.

USFS requires spark arrestor on ALL vehicles.  Glass packs or any straight-through mufflers that do not include spark arrestor certification are not allowed.

  1. All vehicles registered for the Jamboree must be street legal, licensed, insured and equipped as prescribed for specific trips prior to the mandatory technical inspection. Proof of insurance is required - no exceptions.
  2. The PNW is not responsible for accidents, damage, or injury to persons or vehicles. All drivers must be licensed and are responsible for the occupants of that vehicle. All occupants must be registered, paid for, and sign a waiver.
  3. Registration stickers shall be clearly visible on the front passenger side of registered vehicles during the entire Jamboree.
  4. Only registered vehicles shall be permitted to travel on trails included in the Jamboree.
  5. Running a non-assigned trail anytime during Jamboree may result in disqualification from participation during this and future Jamborees, as it jeopardizes our permit.
  6. Make sure you always maintain visual contact with the vehicle behind you on trail rides. Stop and wait for the vehicle behind you if you lose sight.
  7. Weapons of any kind are not permitted in vehicles or at camp.
  8. Consumption of alcohol is not permitted on trails.
