13679 W Thannum Fire Lane, Hayward, Wisconsin 54843. We have direct trail access to 3 major trails. Hop on your machine and go. We have ample parking for cars & trucks.
Trail map, suggested routes and recommended places to stop. Fun. Popular options include delivery service, prepaid fuel option, trip interruption program, guide service, apparel rental and helmet rental. We HIGHLY recommend you purchase the Trip Interruption Program in case you need to alter or cancel. Otherwise there is no refund. (See cancellation policy).
Our ATV & UTV helmets are "MX" style (open face) and goggles are included. Otherwise you may use your shatter-proof glasses or goggles.
Drivers and operators’ licenses, camera, cash and credit card; fully charged phone GPS enabled; compass, dust masks or bandanas to mitigate trail dust effects; extra shoes/clothes to change out of after the ride, dust mask, rain gear. Dress appropriately and in layers. We suggest you pack an outer layer such as a breathable rain suit, gloves even on bright and relatively warm days. It's a lot cooler in the forests especially when moving.
Runamuk Rides is situated at the junction of 3 major trails. Simply hop on the machine and ride right from our place. Ample parking is available. We do, though, offer delivery service as well as allow guests to trailer our equipment, subject to certain conditions.
Concerning age, operation, licensing,. etc. we advise all prospective renters to review DNR regulations and safety operation courses. Visit https://dnr.wi.gov/topic/atv/. The DNR Wardens and Sheriff's Deputies enforce these rules.
Our trail system courses through thick forest that circumnavigate past many glacial lakes and streams. The terrain is “undulating” (quite hilly, up & down) and the trails best described as winding (sharp curves and not so sharp curves). Wildlife such as black bear, timberwolves, fox, coyotes, fishers, porcupines, deer, beaver, otters, etc. abound. Guests often may encounter the forests’ inhabitants. Respect them, don’t try and chase or approach them and you both can be on your way.
Most people find the trail system well marked and navigable with the aid of a trail map. It’s not uncommon, though, for people to wander off the trail or onto an unintended route. A little backtracking often does the trick. If you wish, we will provide you with a trail map and some suggested routes that include places to stop, rest, eat, drink, etc. If you’d feel more comfortable, guide service is available.
There are resorts and quaint family owned establishments that make great places to stop. None of these are in the actual designated forests so don’t expect to see one every 15 minutes. You are off-roading through private, county, state and federal forests. Trails are often muddy and you will get dirty.
Read the law, our cancellation policy and our agreements BEFORE you rent so you know your responsibilities. All equipment operators comply with Wisconsin DNR licensing and operation requirements. Visit dnr.wi.gov for more information.
We are NOT a school nor do we provide any training, navigating or operating instructions. You are required to show up with sufficient knowledge, skills and capabilities to carefully inspect, operate and navigate the machines you are renting or operating.
In order to reserve a machine, you must pay the entire amount of rental upfront. We have a very strict cancellation policy so read it carefully.
You will receive our equipment fully fueled and must return it that way. We suggest our Prepaid Fuel Option because finding fuel on your way back or carrying it in can be a challenge.
We do NOT offer any kind of insurance nor are you in any way insured by us. You assume full liability for damage to machines or 3rd parties. Contact your insurance agent regarding coverage. Damaging or destroying our equipment can be expensive and you will have to pay according to our terms and conditions. Read them carefully before you decide to rent.
We will collect (charge) a $1500 per machine security deposit to cover any incidental expenses or damage costs. Assuming there's no damage or incidentals, your security deposit will be refunded within approximately 10 days. If there IS damage or extra charges we will advise you of the cost and deduct it from security deposits. If the charges exceed the security deposit amount we will require immediate payment of any remaining outstanding balance.
Our machines are, electric start, four stroke, full-sized machines. They have powerful engines and agility. All will be pre-registered and have appropriate WI trail passes. You do not need to purchase a trail pass separately. Runamuk requires helmet use at all times for both passengers and operators. You may rent from us or bring your own "sport appropriate" helmet (e.g., no bicycle helmets).
Except for rental returns, we are closed on Sundays. We are closed July 4. We will reopen at 9am on July 5. We are also closed Labor Day.
