Top Ten Off Highway Vehicle (OHV) Regulations
1. Stay on the trail.
BLM designates areas as either Ã¢â‚¬Å“limited to existing roads and trailsÃ¢â‚¬Â
or Ã¢â‚¬Å“limited to designated roads and trailsÃ¢â‚¬Â. Check with your local BLM
office before heading into the field.
- Limited vehicle travel
off existing or designated roads and trails to accomplish "necessary
tasks" and certain leisure-time activities up to 300 feet from roads is
allowed only if travel does not cause resource damage, create new roads
or extend existing roads. It is not always possible to retrieve downed
game with a vehicle. Be prepared and bring a game cart, pack frame or
horses to retrieve your game. A 300 foot limit is recommended to
prevent resource damage.
