Don't want to join a group? Then ride independently. The Rally Base Camp sits in the middle of the vast riding area. Think of it as the spokes of a wheel and the Base Camp is the center of the wheel. Around this wheel are the regular rides and hundred of miles of additional mountain tops, lakes, rivers and streams that are not part of the above "Rally Rides". Feel free to set off and ride independently. Go exploring! (Another great thing about the Rallies now location. )

What will the weather be like at the Rally Base Camp?
In July, Idaho is warm and dry and the Rally Base Camp is at a higher elevation. So it has wonderful temperatures in the months of July and August. The Base Camp sits at 6900 feet elevation and has an average temperatures of 75 to 85 degrees in July. Much nicer temperatures than places at lower elevation. You will need a minimal amount of air conditioning, if any. But you may need a little heat in the mornings before the sun comes up. Do expect cool mornings.
Many of the rides you will go on will be at elevations of 8000 to 10,000 feet. Temperatures will be much cooler up there. Please make sure to bring warmer clothes and even rain gear with you.
The milder Summer temperatures is another great thing about Rally In The Pines's new location!

What's for dinner at Rally In The Pines?
At Rally In The Pines 2 we will have a Western BBQ Dinner on Friday night, featuring BBQ sandwiches, potato salad and coleslaw. (BYOD) We will have a night ride and serve this dinner at our beautiful mountain group site, with live entertainment. The Western BBQ Dinner & live entertainment is included with your registration.

What should I bring with me to Rally In The Pines?
Bring an ATV and/or Side X Side. The Rally Base Camp will have cooler Summer temperatures than most places in Idaho, because of it's higher elevation. Because you will be riding in the high mountains, bring warmer riding clothes and rain gear. Bug spray is a good idea. Bring everything that you normally take when you ride. And if you fish, defiantly bring your fishing pole and tackle. The fishing is world class and you will have 3 lakes, 2 rivers and a reservoir to choose from. All within a short distance of the Rally Base Camp.
There is a hot springs in the area too! So maybe a bathing suit?
All this is another great reason to move to our new location!

Is my dog welcome at Rally In The Pines?

Yes, your dog is very welcome at Rally In The Pines and on the rides. We ask that your dog be on a leash in the Rally Base Camp. Please clean up after your dog. Your dog must be in control at all times. For everyone's sake at the rally, any dogs that bark constantly, their owners will be asked to leave the event.

Do I need to register my ATV or Side X Side in the State Of Idaho?
