The Off Highway Vehicle (OHV) trails course through stunning landscapes in Moab. The popularity of All Terrain Vehicles (ATV) and Side by Sides is established in Moab Utah.
Whether visitors tow an OHV to ride their own or rent from a Moab business, all users benefit from Riding with Respect and adhering to the regulations set forth by Utah Parks and Recreation.
One of Moab’s newest OHV trails takes Riding with Respect to a heartfelt level. The Fallen Peace Officer Trail has been the site of an annual event to honor the lives of Utah’s fallen law enforcement officers. At each mile marker of this 14 mile trail a Fallen Peace Officer is memorialized. A Solemnity Walk is open to pedestrian traffic to pay respects. The event is to be held April 9 2016.
Riding with Respect more formally is an initiative to protect natural resources on public lands resulting from careful recreation use. Two additional OHV events in Moab are Rally on the Rocks taking place May 9–14, 2016 and the Red Rock’n Moab SXS Event held on September 22-25, 2016. Riding with Respect guidelines are adhered to during those gatherings. If you can’t make Rally on the Rocks in May come in September for the Red Rockin’ Moab SXS and vice-versa.
We welcome all out of town guests to enjoy the trails with their vehicles, however, in an effort to reduce the noise levels in the residential community in and around Moab, a local committee has produced a sign. The “Throttle Down in Town” sign is a welcoming document as a reminder to reduce noise in neighborhoods which span beyond downtown into the Moab Valley. Residents will have these signs posted in their yards as a friendly reminder.
Meanwhile, on the streets of Moab, residents have appealed to elected officials to persuade the visiting OHV street legal users to abide by restrictions to reduce the noise levels in community home places. A committee has produced a poster to specify street legal requirements and indicates the states that must purchase the Utah non-resident OHV permit and which state reciprocate with Utah. It is a welcoming document with a reminder to Throttle Down in Town to reduce noise in neighborhoods, which span beyond downtown into the Moab Valley.
