La Sal MTNS OHV Pilot Project
New guidelines for motorized vehicles in the La Sal Mountains protects sensitive SITLA properties while preserving public OHV privileges.
- SITLA's new motor vehicle Management Plan creates designated routes for all motorized vehicles, while maintaining access to a popular area for hunters and recreational riders.
- This Management Plan aligns with our purpose and mission to manage trust lands for the benefit of school children and other beneficiaries by demonstrating good land stewardship that retains or improves land value.
- Abundant travel opportunities exist throughout the property for full-size vehicles, ATVs, motorcycles, mountain bikes, hikers and horseback riding.
- Travel is restricted to designated routes for all OHV travel. OHV routes are divided into three classes: 4WD vehicles, ATV (width 50" or less), and singletrack only. Please be aware that trail classification is subject to change at anytime.
- Designated OHV Routes can be viewed on our ArcGIS Online interactive map by navigating the map above or by clicking HERE. or take the map with you on your Iphone or IPad Search Keyword "La Sal OHV".
- Informational kiosks with recreational guidelines have been placed at key entrance points.
- Signage and trail work is being completed over a three-year period beginning in summer 2010.
- The project is largely being funded by a statewide $1.50 annual OHV vehicle registration surcharge, earmarked to mitigate resource degradation and promote responsible OHV use of trust lands.
- A primary objective of this OHV Pilot Project is to reduce resource damage.
- Stakeholders who participated in developing the plan include Grand County, San Juan County, SPEAR, Ride with Respect, Utah State Parks, Utah Division of Wildlife Resources, U.S. Forest Service, Red Rock 4-Wheelers, Moab Friends-for-Wheelin, adjacent landowners and SITLA grazing permittees.
