Default Is the size restriction true?

Hi, I have been hearing there is now a size restriction implemented at evens creek and a few other things such as you must carry a map as well. What is the size limit and are there any other rules? I havent yet wheeled there but planned on it once back from deployment and just want to know before i go. Thanks for any input.

Yes sort of. There has always been a 72" width restriction on the books but not enforced. On the new map they just put out it lists the trails at Evans as 72". Not sure of if their going to enforce it or not but one of my buggy friends was stopped and told about it by the ranger. Here is the link to the FS site where you can download a map.

I thought I read somewhere about the old 72" width restriction being from hub to hub...Am I off base on this?

Yes the old measurement was hub to hub.
I talked to Bob some today and expressed our concerns with the new map and the mention of the 72" width restriction on it. He told me today that they were considering the 72" measurement as outside of tire to outside of tire.

It doesn't matter what they "consider" it to be they wrote "Hub". If they wish to enforce something different then they need to update the regs. The shade of gray is should it be selectable hub which would be the wider point or wheel hub? Neither of which is a tire by any standards.
