Visitors must abide by vehicle designations on BLM public lands. Recreation areas may be classified as either open, limited or closed to 4x4 and jeep use.
- Open - Off-road use is permitted, given that it does not result in disturbance, damage or destruction of the environment; wildlife; cultural, historical or paleontological resources; or government or private property.
- Limited - Motorized vehicle use is restricted as defined in the associated land use plan. Limitations may include designations such as "limited to existing roads and trails," "limited to designated roads and trails," or seasonal limitations such as "no vehicle use during elk calving season."
- Closed - All motorized vehicle use is prohibited.
Motorized use in most BLM areas is under a limited or designated travel management system. OHVs including 4X4s are limited to operating on roads and trails that are identified on travel maps and/or posted as a route that is available for motorized use.
