Notice of ORV Route Closures
Three "non-established" Off Road Vehicle (ORV)/All Terrain Vehicle (ATV) routes in Wrangell-St. Elias National Park will be closed to all ORV and ATV users, including Subsistence and Recreational Users. This closure is a seasonal closure in effect only during summer months. These routes will remain open to over-snow-vehicles during winter periods when adequate snow cover is present.
The reason for the closure is that these newly formed routes have caused an unacceptable adverse impact on the resource. This closure will be in effect until a determination by the Superintendent concludes that these routes no longer represent an unacceptable adverse impact on the resource. The three routes included in this closure are located off of the Nabesna Road and are identified by maps posted at each route.
