Shift into reverse: USNPS announces ORVs will not be allowed on Utah NP roads after all

To cheers from environmentalists and sneers from off-road enthusiasts, the National Park Service reversed direction Friday, announcing that utility terrain vehicles will not be allowed on park roads in Utah after all.

On Sept. 24, the service’s regional office in Denver directed Utah park superintendents to remove off-road vehicle bans from their rules effective Nov. 1, opening the door for “street legal” versions of UTVs to enter Utah parks and roam backroads like those on Canyonlands’ White Rim and Needles District.
