Description: As the United States population has grown, so has all-terrain-vehicle (ATV) use on national forests and grasslands and other public lands. Annual sales of ATVs have increased over 272 percent since 1994 to an estimated 876,000 units in 2005 (Specialty Vehicle Institute of America - Special Report Summer 2006). ATVs are a popular choice for outdoor recreation. According to a national survey on recreation and the environment, about 36.3 million people participate in off-highway driving or ATV or motorcycle use (Cordell et al. 2001). An estimated 11 million visits to national forests involve off-highway-vehicle (OHV) use-or about 5 percent of all recreation visits (English 2003).

Keywords: all-terrain-vehicle (ATV), national forests and grasslands, outdoor recreation
