SB1377 | Massive changes to the Arizona OHV fund
There is an organized effort by anti-access groups to convince our lawmakers to close motorized access to public lands because of a handful of novice users in rental UTVs around Sedona. It’s clear that our lawmakers do not understand how responsible and respectful the majority of the 4×4 community is. We must respond with the overwhelming support of motorized access.

Sedona City Council in favor of restricting access
The Sedona City Council is asking the Coconino National Forest to implement a limited use permit system for motorized trails in the greater Sedona area similar to the Soldiers Pass Trail. The council meeting included discussions on whether or not the city can require quieter mufflers, impose nighttime restrictions on OHV use, force moratoriums on OHV businesses, limit OHV businesses by zoning, or licensing. Officials also discussed conducting an Environmental Impact statement to lay the basis for regulatory action through the Coconino National Forest.

Sedona, Arizona, is among the most prized destinations in the world for all forms of outdoor recreation, including hiking, mountain biking, camping, and exploring the hidden remains of pre-historic cultures. Among the vast opportunity for adventure are some of the most awesome 4×4 trails in Central Arizona. Thousands of motorized enthusiasts use these trails, from street-legal vehicles and motorcycles to rental UTVs and Jeeps operated by novice users.
A twenty year prohibition on motorized access now lifted
Several forest orders in the Coconino National Forest expired on the first of the year. These forest orders have been holding many of northern Arizonas best 4×4 trails and campsites hostage. As far as we can tell, some of these roads are still open on the MVUM.
