As a person who loves to spend time in the back country, I am increasingly aware of the responsibility that goes with forays into the forests and canyons of Utah. The potential I have as an individual to impact areas I enjoy has made me more sensitive to principles of responsible and ethical…

The NUATV club responded when the call went out from the Public Lands Equal Access Alliance (PLEAA) in conjunction with the Forest Service to help sign trails on the Shoshone Trail System. It was a chance to give back service in providing assistance to maintain trails we like to ride.

With more than 1,200 wildfires in Utah this year burning over 383 square miles of land, one might wonder if the only fall colors to see will be some shade of black. As reported Sunday in the Standard-Examiner, there are eight active wildfires currently burning.

If you have a current Utah hunting, fishing or combination license, you can visit either of the Division of Wildlife Resources public shooting ranges on Saturday and shoot for free. The only exception are the trap and skeet ranges at the facilities, where shooting will be half price.

Biologists with the Division of Wildlife Resources are recommending changes that will affect anglers in Utah for the next two years. If the changes are approved, you’d be allowed to use corn as bait at all of Utah’s fishing waters, keep more lake trout at Flaming Gorge Reservoir, enjoy a two…

One of the goals in going as a group on an ATV ride is to come back with the same number of people who started together. Of course, there is safety in numbers — especially due to the nature of Utah trails, which lead riders out a long way from services needed.

In addition to celebrating the birth of our country, many Utahns will be looking to escape the heat and wet a fishing line over the July 4 holiday. Fishing can be a great family activity and a perfect way to relax over the holiday. And Utah provides several great options.

When I drive Utah’s highways, I am always looking for dirt roads and trails. One of the aspects I enjoy about my riding experience is discovering where trails take me. I ventured out on the Bridger Jack Mesa Trail because of what I had heard about it.

In just eight days, three boats infested with quagga mussels almost launched on water bodies in Northern Utah. Fortunately, skilled technicians with the Division of Wildlife Resources and Utah State Parks found the mussels before the boats were able to launch.

The ATV trails in San Juan County have been on my list for a long time. I was pleased when the NUATV club scheduled a ride on the Arch Canyon Trail. One of the guides for the annual San Juan Safari, Ron Toomey, was kind enough to take us through this historic and beautiful country.

Crescent Junction on I-70 east of Green River is the place to turn south to Moab. Just three miles east is the sleepy little town of Thompson Springs — a place to stage a great ATV adventure.

With the popularity of four-seat UTVs, more ATV companies have been stepping up to the plate. One of the challenges facing manufacturers has been building one that can handle some of the tight turns found on our mountain trails.

The 31st annual running of the ATVs will open in Fillmore this year on June 19. Open to ATVs and UTVs, the National ATV/UTV Jamboree is the oldest jamboree in the state and would rival any other in the nation for that position.

Being a guy who loves to ride an ATV in the backcountry, it never crossed my mind that anyone else in the ATV community would have a different perspective. Imagine my surprise when I got an email from my good friend, Sherry Sheppard, from Fillmore offering just that — a different perspective.

In February, we reviewed the ATV events slated for the year in Utah. The Tri-State Jamboree was held last month in Hurricane. Attended by a record number of riders, it continues to be a hit in the ATV community nationwide.

It was the second ride we had ventured out on in our Tri-State Jamboree experience. I love a new trail, and the Enterprise Reservoir/Pinnacles ride was new to the trail offerings at the jamboree.

I have written articles about respecting the land and staying on designated trails. After talking with Jerrica Archibald, who is in charge of communications for the national Tread Lightly organization, I realize that it is about much more than trail etiquette.

The warm days we had in January and February found me out on the trail already. I have had four days riding so far this year and I don’t remember ever riding so early in the year. Now here I am staring out my window at real February weather contemplating the purposes I find in ATV adventures.

We were looking for something strange on our ride in the desert west of Fillmore. A high wall of lava formations exists on the north side of Pahvant Butte called the Lace Curtain — a curious formation unlike anything I have ever seen before.

We are already over a month into 2018 and I have not written about the ATV jamborees scheduled for 2018. I was reminded of that fact in an email from Vickie Mattson last week. While an article I wrote came out on the Tri-State Jamboree coming up in March, that does not help anyone plan for t…

I have been on a ride to the Toquerville Falls before, but it was a destination point. We did not take any trails past the falls. A friend told me that the trail on the other side of the falls was worth exploring. Well, my interest was piqued. Having spent a day riding to the Grand Canyon wi…

We had reached the Grand Gulch Mine in the Arizona Strip, enjoyed a lunch break, and toured the mine site. Still having the rest of the day ahead of us, we headed for the north rim of the Grand Canyon.
