Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Debuts Top BLM Motorized Recreational Opportunities Website

From BLM’s Top BLM Motorized Recreational Opportunities Website:

The BLM’s Top Recreation Opportunities Mapping website is designed to provide and promote a greater awareness of recreational opportunities on BLM-managed public lands. The BLM partnered with the National Off-Highway Vehicle Conservation Council (NOHVCC) to highlight some of the BLM’s highest quality motorized recreation opportunities across the nation. Users can now find information to plan their next exciting ride while at home or on the road. Using an interactive web-based storymap, users can get familiar with recreation site amenities, season operations dates, camping availability, and more. 

NOHVCC encourages OHV enthusiasts and land managers to share this website broadly.  It can be found here.

The website is a great tool and both NOHVCC and the BLM want to make it even better. If you have pictures you can share taken at any of the areas listed on the site – please send them to NOHVCC at trailhead@nohvcc.org and we will make sure to forward them to the BLM for potential inclusion on the site.  Photographers will be given credit for their contribution. NOHVCC will also accept any information (brochures, websites, maps, etc.) related to any of the areas and pass it along as well.

NOHVCC Program Director, Marc Hildesheim, said “NOHVCC has a strong partnership with the BLM and this new website is just some of the proof.  We are excited to help more enthusiasts become aware of BLM’s best OHV areas, as well as continuing our partnership for many years to come.”

Finally, take look at the new site.  You may find an outstanding OHV area near-to-home you were unaware of – or you might spark an idea for a cross-country trip to an opportunity unlike anything you have ever experienced.

More from the BLM:

While on BLM-managed lands, visitors should observe all safety regulations, pack out any trash and keep on designated routes to avoid damaging natural and cultural resources. BLM currently requires masks and social distancing as appropriate to prevent the spread of COVID-19, per CDC guidelines. The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land located primarily in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The agency’s mission is to sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of America’s public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations.
