Motorized Recreation

There are hundreds of miles of routes in the St. George Field Office area for four-wheel drive, ATV, and dirt bike enthusiasts. From easy to extremely challenging, these routes offer stunning scenery and a range of experiences that will suit everyone from the ATV novice to the serious rock crawler.

OHV use in this Field Office area is managed by area designations: Open, Open for Use on Existing Roads and Trails, Open for Use on Designated Roads and Trails, and Closed. It is the operator’s responsibility to know area designations and which routes are open to OHV travel. Please click on the link OHV Area Designations on the right for more detailed information.
Operators (including those from out-of-state) must also follow Utah State regulations regarding OHV use. Because of St. George, Utah’s close proximity to the Arizona state border, and since some OHV routes will travel between Utah and Arizona, OHVers should comply with Arizona State regulations as well.
A popular place for riding is the Sand Mountain OHV Area located just south of Hurricane City. This area provides technical four-wheel drive routes and open dunes ready for ATV play. Click on the link to the right for more information about riding in the Sand Mountain OHV Area.
