List Of A Few National Parks That Offer UTV Trails
The weather get more beautiful each day, which means if you haven’t already it’s time to get your UTV out of winter storage and hit the trails! But why take your UTV on a spin on any old trail when you can enjoy a trail in a national park? To help you plan your next trip, here is a list of a few national parks that offer UTV trails.
Wrangell St. Elias
The Wrangell St. Elias national park is so large it spans 13 million acres from the ocean up to the top of Mount. St. Elias! You’re in luck because within those 13 million acres there are plenty of UTV trails to enjoy. If you decide to visit this Alaskan National Park, you’ll need to make sure you have an off-road vehicle permit. These are free, but can only be claimed in person so you’ll have to stop at the visitor center to pick one up. If you’re making the trek to Alaska, be sure to check ahead of time if there are any trail closures or conditions you should be aware of.
If you’re looking to do some UTV riding in Florida soon you may be disappointed. But the wait to ride UTV trails in the Big Cypress National Preserve will be worth it! Although the Preserve does have secondary off-road vehicle trails for hunting, fishing, frogging, camping, wildlife observation and transportation, they are currently closed. This is until the trails can be evaluated through the completion of an environmental review and analysis. You can find progress on the access plan process here. In the meantime, there are plenty of other trails to enjoy in Florida outside the national park.
Zion National Park
Okay, while you can’t technically take your UTV into Zion National Park (ORV’s aren’t allowed in the park) there are some amazing trails just outside the park if you’re looking to explore some of the gorgeous red rock that Utah has to offer. There are two state parks nearby that offer some world-class UTV and ATV riding; Sand Hollow and Coral Pink Sand Dunes. You get to enjoy the gorgeous red rock that meets soft sand under your tires. Besides riding your ORV at Sand Hollow State Park, you can camp, picnic, boat, and fish!
Bryce Canyon National Park
Can’t get enough of beautiful Utah? Bryce Canyon National Park is a great place to take your UTV or ATV. You’ll get to see lots of different scenery from those iconic red rocks, to rock spires, and dense forest. There are miles and miles of trails to explore; you can see a list of all of the trails here There’s no better time than before hitting some trails (whether they’re in a National Park or not) to get a custom polycarbonate windshield for your UTV.
