BLM Proposes Changes to OHV Areas in Vegas and Pahrump

See this post in Race-Dezert forum...

http://www.race-dezert.com/forum/thr.../#post-1634071

This could certainly have an impact on all off-road riding in the Las Vegas and Pahrump areas; and if it's successful there then no telling what other BLM lands may be affected in the future...

Actually it has nothing to do with recreational Off Highway riding in ACECs, only Commercial Race Events.

Nevada is one big Open area and trophy truck races are slowly making every road in the state unuseable by vehicles with less than 15" of suspension.

Thanks for the clarification. I definitely got the wrong impression if it only applies to ACECs.

In the table provided in Section 2.5.3.5, it indicates the following potential changes in OHV classifications.

Travel Classification Alternative 1 Alternative 2 Alternative 3 Alternative 4
Open 26,563 acres 15,881 acres 15,880 acres 15,881 acres
Closed 319,408 acres 424,840 acres 181,617 acres 181,616 acres
Limited to existing roads, trails, and dry washes 1,628,460 acres 0 0 0
Limited to designated roads and trails 1,136,598 acres 2,669,582 acres 2,912,805 acres 2,913,100 acres
Limited to existing trails and ways 4,607 acres 0 0 0
Total 3,115,636 acres 3,110,303 acres 3,110,302 acres 3,110,597 acres

I read this as applying to all OHV usage, it this not correct.

Wrong!

ACEC designation does not only affect Racing. This will impact all OHVs.

Designating these areas as Area of Critical Environmental Concern (ACEC) not only bans off-road racing, but will significantly reduce the number and miles of trails open to OHVs, and close most if not all cross country travel.
