AZ OHV Ambassadors Offer "Show Me Rides" on Public Lands
Take a Guided Ride near Phoenix


PHOENIX —The Arizona Off-Highway Ambassadors are offering guided tours of places to ride all-terrain vehicles (ATV) on public lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management.

Have you recently purchased an off-road vehicle and want to know where you can use it? The Ambassadors can lead the way to fun just outside of the Phoenix area through “Show Me Rides” events in October and November. These “Show Me Rides” will introduce riders to two areas just north of Phoenix – the Table Mesa Recreation Area and the Boulders Staging Area/Hieroglyphic Mountains.

The Ambassadors will guide riders to and through these areas, review maps, explain the types of trails available, and review proper riding/wheeling etiquette and safety tips. New riders or those new to the Phoenix area will have an opportunity to ask questions and learn from some of the most experienced and knowledgeable riders in the area.  

Bring your off-highway vehicle and be ready to hit the trail. RSVP by contacting Chris Gammage at cgammage@blm.gov for one or more of the sessions:

The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
