Utah is called the “two-thirds state” because two-thirds of the state is public land. The vast diversity of public land in Utah provides an unrivaled opportunity for responsible motorized access. The U4WDA is committed to working with land managers across the state from the Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, and Utah State Parks to further our mission of responsible public access.
The U4WDA supports many of the efforts of the BLM and works closely with this organization in keeping Utah’s off-highway roads accessible to the public.
The BLM’s website offers information on hundreds of miles of quality off-highway riding opportunities by county within Utah.
Tread Lightly! and its partners lead a national initiative to protect and enhance recreation access and opportunities by promoting outdoor ethics to heighten individuals’ sense of good stewardship. Tread Lightly!’s goal is to balance the needs of the people who enjoy outdoor recreation with our need to maintain healthy ecosystems and thriving populations of fish and wildlife.
Specifically here are some educational resources from Tread Lightly! that relate to trails and maps:
