Off-road Vehicles

ATVs, OHVs, and other off-road vehicles are not permitted in Zion National Park.

Use of any off-highway vehicle (OHV), all-terrain vehicle (ATV), or other motorized conveyance manufactured for recreational non-highway, off road, or all terrain travel (all-terrain type I or type II vehicles, as defined by Utah State Code Annotated 41-22-2) is prohibited.

The use on park roads of off-highway vehicles (OHVs), all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), and other motorized conveyances manufactured for recreational non-highway, off-road, or all-terrain travel poses a significant risk to park resources and values which cannot be appropriately mitigated, and which cannot be sustained without causing unacceptable impacts. The use of such vehicles is, therefore, not consistent with the protection of the parks and monuments.
