Off-road travel in the desert or backcountry areas of Nevada and surrounding States is potentially dangerous. Such travel may result in damage to personal property or property of others. Persons may be injured, or death may result during such travel. The Virgin Valley 4×4 Club cannot envision every situation whereby damage, injury or death may occur. Information on this website is published for VV4x4 members personal use in determining when and where members may want to travel. If VV4x4 members travel on any of the trails listed on this website, they assume full responsibility and liability for their travel and travel by their guests. VV4x4 officers disclaim any and all liability for bodily injury, property damage to VV4x4 members or others, or death of persons that could occur. It is the responsibility of VV4x4 members and their guests to comply with all applicable Federal, State, and local laws regarding travel on public or private lands, roads and trails. VV4x4 members are the final decision-makers as to whether travel is safe on a particular day, road and weather conditions during the day of travel are adequate for travel, and whether members’ vehicles are capable of the trip, including what supplies and survival equipment should be carried on the trip.
