Riding in town

Utah is unique in that you can drive street-legal ATVs and UTVs through town and directly to trailheads.

  • We encourage UTV riders to limit in-town driving by trailering their vehicles to the trailheads whenever possible.

  • If you must ride in town, please try to avoid driving through neighborhoods and avoid driving at night to provide solitude for residents in the evening.

Sharing is caring

On your ride, there’s a chance you’ll encounter full-size vehicles, motorcycles, mountain bikers, dog walkers, horseback riders, and more. Make sure to keep your speed manageable and minimize dust so other trail users can enjoy Moab’s epic views.

Street-Legal UTV/ATV requirements

We want you to have a fun, safe, and enjoyable time while visiting Moab. Street-legal equipment requirements largely parallel the safety equipment you expect to find on a traditional motor vehicle. However, please note that if a vehicle is street legal in your home state, it may not necessarily be street legal in Utah. Street legal UTVs and ATVs are not allowed on interstate highways. Carefully examine the requirements below:

UTVs and ATVs are allowed to be operated on paved roads, streets, and highways (not interstate highways) in the Moab area when the vehicles are:

  • Properly registered as street-legal.

  • Properly insured for highway use.

  • Properly registered as street-legal and comply with all of the UTAH street-legal equipment requirements shown above.

  • If your UTV/ATV does not meet these requirements, it must be transported to and from the trailhead.

Stay on the trail

Forests and nature trails always provide riders with a map, and it’s for a good reason. The map seeks to guide the rider on the approved roads as off-trail adventure leaves behind a mess of erosion and damage to the vegetation.
