AZ OHV Ambassadors Offer "Show Me Rides" on Public Lands


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

Do you have an off-road vehicle and want to know where you can use it? The OHV Ambassadors can lead the way to fun just outside of the Phoenix area through “Show Me Rides” events in March, April and May. 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 guide riders through these areas, review maps, explain the types of trails available, and review proper riding / four-wheeling etiquette and offer safety tips. Riders 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.
