I know the BLM lets you ride there but if you read the BIG sign near the entrance on Potash road it clearly says basically "we don't care if your UTV is legal or not you can't ride on the Forest side of the trail". That in a nutshell. I was told by the Forest Department (their words) "Vehicles that cannot legally drive on a interstate cannot drive on the Shafer Trail or other park roads". Just wondering if we will ever be able to ride that trail or have to get in our trucks to see it. Maybe not your expertise on the subject but thought I would ask.
You cannot atv/utv in any National park. There are some national forest areas that allow riding, but not within actual national park boundaries, like canyonlands, arches, grand canyon, yellowstone, ect..
That is incorrect. We ride in Yellowstone every year and have for the last several years.

You have to be licensed, insured, and have tires with a DOT stamp. They actually check your tires. You can't ride off road, but we did the 100 plus mile loop from West Yellowstone last year.
I do see Yellowstone made an exception for MPV's starting in 2008. But, Arches and Canyonlands are definitely off limits. There are signs everywhere even saying so

Re: Hello from the Moab Police Department

Hey Bret is there a RZR/UTVs towing or rescue service in Moab if you break down out in the middle of nowhere? We usually ride with friends, but not always. I try to carry enough supplies and spare parts, but canít cover everything.

Thank you.

That's a great question. There are at least a couple companies in town who offer trailside recovery and/or repair services. Below you'll find the companies we were able to specifically identify with a UTV focus. Hope this helps!

The original requirements indicated that DOT tires were required. The latest state code does not appear to indicate that tires must be DOT compliant. Here is a link to the latest state code governing equipment requirements for street-legal OHV's in Utah:

If your RZR is plated, insured and legal for street use in the state of Texas, AND has all the street-legal equipment requirements for Utah, it can be legally operated on the streets in Utah. Otherwise, you'd have to explore alternatives such as getting it insured and licensed in another state (in the thread linked above, there are several discussions about people who have registered/plated in both South Dakota and Idaho).
