NOHVCC staff recently delivered a Great Trails Workshop in Colorado that featured a visit to the Hartman Rocks Recreation Area managed by the Bureau of Land Management.  Hartman Rocks is a multiple-use area that provides opportunities for dirt bikes, mountain bikes, equestrian users, hikers, rock crawlers, trials bikes, rock climbers as well as ATVs and ROVs.  The area also has plenty of campsites that include fire rings and picnic tables

An unavoidable truth is that sometimes trails need to be closed.  While everyone in the OHV community strives for more and better access for motorized recreation, some trails simply are not sustainable, were originally located incorrectly, or simply do not meet the needs of the trail system.  This article is about those trails. “You can’t close a trail in the desert.”  This is something that NOHVCC staff hears quite often.
