Finally, nearly 40 years after the signing of a presidential order designed to protect our forests from off-road vehicle abuse, the Forest Service is putting regulations in place to protect our public lands from further off-road vehicle abuse. The Travel Management Rule forces the Forest Service to designate routes and areas open to off-roading — reserving other areas for the benefit of wildlife, plants and quiet recreation.

The Center is dedicated to ensuring that the Forest Service prioritizes the protection of our natural resources for all Americans over the demand, from a small minority, for more and more motorized access. We’re playing a key role in ensuring that the Travel Management Rule is implemented appropriately to protect wildlife and habitat. We encourage all concerned citizens to join in this effort to reduce damage associated with off-road vehicles to protect public-trust resources, ensure the Forest Service adopts fiscally responsible road systems and secure recreational opportunities for quiet and low-impact users.
