Please refer to the OHV Designation map showing all vehicle designations (including those for motorized and mountain bike travel) in the Moab Field Office. In general, there are three designations applicable to all vehicles (including mountain bikes):
Closed: These areas are closed to all vehicular travel.
Limited to Designated Roads and Trails: Within these areas, vehicles must stay on routes that are marked open to travel. These routes are usually marked with brown, plastic, flexible posts and arrows. No cross-country travel is allowed.
Open to Cross-Country Travel: The only area open to cross-country travel in the Moab Field Office is White Wash Sand Dunes.
Please comply with these rules when traveling in the Moab area. There are thousands of miles of roads and trails to enjoy. Moab's roads and trails are famous because they offer a combination of challenge and scenery that cannot be found elsewhere. Protect your privilege and stay on roads and trails! Cross-country travel damages plant and soil resources, and leaves ugly long-lasting scars. Please enjoy your recreational activity in the Moab area while staying on roads and trails.
Please look for additional information regarding travel rules on bulletin boards and signs throughout the area. Thank you for respecting these off highway vehicle designations. Remember, these designations apply to all vehicles, including jeeps, ATV’s, dirt bikes and mountain bikes.
Please refer to our Travel Management Plan web page for maps of designated routes.
