Avoid Sensitive Areas


Avoid sensitive areas such as meadows, lakeshores, wetlands and streams, unless on designated routes. This protects wildlife habitat and sensitive soils from damage.

  • Prevent forest fires by equipping your vehicle with a spark arrestor.
  • Minimize noise. Whenever traveling on an access route, shift up at least one gear in order to keep engine noise to a minimum.
  • Protect riparian areas, the easily damaged green strips of vegetation along rivers and lakes. They help prevent erosion, filter sediment to protect water quality, and provide food and shelter for fish and wildlife. Avoid riding in these areas.
  • If you must cross a soft or muddy area, go slowly to avoid spinning your wheels.
