What Is Back Road and Trail Driving?

Back Road or Trail Driving refers to driving on seldom-used secondary roads, especially ones through rural or sparsely populated areas. These roads are often less managed and maintained, and are therefore more prone to accidents.

Back Roads and Trail Driving aims to help you become a better and safer driver by providing you with the knowledge required to drive on back roads, trails, or other surfaces that are not conventionally paved, whether it be for your work or for leisure.
