San Rafael Trail Cleanup 2015
Devil's Racetrack Project
More people turned out than expected. There were BLM employees, members of PLEAA, Castle Country OHV Association and Velocity Raptors. The group focused on improving the conditions of the trail including trail signage, eliminating unauthorized routes, painting small strips clearly marking the trail location in areas of solid rock. This was about as perfect as a trail project day goes . Much was accomplished with everyone working well together. After completion of the project everyone enjoyed a great ride to boot. PLEAA President Glenn Olsen observed "My feeling is that working with the BLM shows this area / trail is important to us . I'm proud of what we accomplished".

On April 29th , PLEAA , Utah State Parks and Northern Utah ATV Trailriders began a signage project on the Orange Trail just out of Green River . The original trail signage was showing wear and was ready for a facelift and some maintenance. Clif Koontz , with Ride with Respect out of Moab , led the effort and organized the project. Many trail signs got new stickers installed and clear tape was installed on many signs to extend the life of the stickers . Mike Thomas , with Utah State Parks assisted for the day . Thanks to all for a great day on the trail !
PLEAA was privileged to attend a workshop sponsored by The Colorado Off Highway Vehicle Coalition (COHVCO ) on May 5-7 in Grand Junction.The workshop was put on by the National Off Highway Vehicle Conservation Council (NOHVCC). The event focused on OHV trail construction and maintenance practices that help to create beautiful, sustainable trails for enthusiasts.
The first day was spent in the classroom while the second and third days were spent out in the field. OHVs were used to navigate through the Bangs Canyon Trail system where participants learned first hand ways to improve new and future systems. NOHVCC did an outstanding job educating attendees with live OHV demonstrations and discussions. Most attendees were Federal Land managers who can put this new knowledge directly to work.
PLEAA joined Clif Koontz from Ride With Respect out of Moab and Mike Thomas with Utah State Parks in attending. We hope to see an event of this caliber in Utah soon!
