Off-road in Glen Canyon

NPS

Riding off-road in the park is allowed only on these National Park Service-designated ORV routes and areas. Pay attention to each location’s specific rules (e.g., speed limits, seasonal closures) set by park management.

All Roads Designated in the Park’s General Management Plan (GMP)

  • All ORVs are authorized for use on the unpaved GMP roads currently open to only conventional vehicles and street- legal ATVs.
    Note: There are 388 miles of GMP roads of which 304 miles are unpaved.
  • All ORVs are authorized for use on approximately eight miles of road in the Orange Cliffs Unit (Route 633 proceeding north to Route 730 and proceeding west to the park boundary), which would complete the 100-mile Poison Spring Loop located on NPS and adjacent BLM lands.
  • All other user-created routes and linear disturbances within the recreation area are closed to public motor vehicle travel.
  • Street-legal ATVs are prohibited on the Lees Ferry Access Road (AZ) and other paved roads in the Lees Ferry developed area (AZ). Closure is for visitor safety concerns and to protect habitat for threatened and endangered species immediately adjacent to the road.

Shoreline Access Areas

Designated shoreline areas are open only to conventional motor vehicles and street-legal ATVs with proper ORV permits. The shoreline access area includes beach area that is up to ½ mile in both directions laterally from the end of the GMP road extending to the shoreline. Some areas are closed to street-legal ATVs seasonally. Speed limits are 15 mph unless otherwise posted.

Permits will be required to operate a motor vehicle off road in specified locations. A permit system for vehicles to operate on designated access areas is in development.
Park entry fees are required regardless of permit status.

If the road, route, or shoreline area is not officially designated on the map, it is closed to motorized vehicle use. Do not be fooled by “social trails” seen on the ground. Minimize your impact by staying on designated routes.
