    ATV Trails Reopened

    While the threat of ATV trails closing gets a lot of attention, we are very pleased to report that the U.S. Forest Service has reopened 31 miles of ATV trails in Mississippi. The Rattlesnake Bay ATV Trails are located in the DeSoto National Forest.

    Area riders can thank the Friends of Rattlesnake Bay, which worked to serve as a strong and unified voice for the trail users.

      Top 10 Sand Dunes

      Riding sand dunes on an ATV or a Side-by-Side is a freeing experience. You can pretty much cut, carve, climb and go wherever you want (within reason).

      If you’ve never ridden sand dunes before, definitely pick a spot from our list and make the time to experience what millions of ATV and UTV enthusiasts make time for every year. Here is our top ten list of sand dune riding locations in the US.

          Johnson Valley OHV ReprieveAccording to a report from the American Motorcyclist Association, the U.S. military can’t spend any money expanding a Marine base into the Johnson Valley off-highway vehicle riding area in California until the Navy files a report on off-highway riding with Congress.

          On Jan. 2, President Obama signed into law the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013 (H.R. 4310), triggering a hold on spending and a 90-day deadline for the military to report to Congress on how its proposed expansion of a Marine base at Twentynine Palms, Calif., would affect off-highway riding at Johnson Valley.

          The language was inserted into the bill by Rep. Roscoe Bartlett (R-Md.) with support from Sens. Diane Feinstein (D-Calif.) and Mark Udall (D-Colo.).
