Frequently Asked Questions – Updated January 21, 2021
Current Winter Conditions
With warmer weather, the snow is quickly turning to mud on the trails in the Moab area. All trails will have significant amounts of mud on them if riding later in the day. To avoid damaging the trail and your equipment ride early when the ground is still frozen. If you leave a track please turn back! The Moab Trail Mix Committee posts frequent condition updates on their Facebook page.

What is the current state of COVID-19 in Moab?
COVID-19 is spreading rapidly throughout Utah. Moab and Grand County are currently at the maximum transmission level. A statewide mask mandate is in effect so you must wear a face mask indoors and outdoors anytime you are within 6 feet of someone you don’t live with. Read more…
Is my ATV/UTV Street Legal?
Your vehicle must have (1) a license plate from your home state and (2) meet all of these requirements. If your home state does not issue license plates to ATV/UTVs, your vehicle cannot be street legal in Utah. If your vehicle is not street legal it must be trailered or towed to the trailheads.
Do I need a Utah Non-Resident OHV Permit?
If a street-legal OHV is registered and has a license plate from your home state, and it meets all of Utah’s street-legal requirements, then you do not need to purchase a Utah Non-Resident OHV Permit. If your vehicle is not street legal you need to purchase a permit either online or in town. Permits are available at the Moab Information Center or at either the North or South Maverik convenience stores in Moab. Permits are $30 and are good for a full year.
Do I need to allow extra travel time because of the road construction on the north end of Moab?
Highway 191, on the north end of Moab, is getting a much-needed upgrade during 2020. The existing roadway will be widened to accommodate five lanes of traffic, which will alleviate congestion heading into town. To minimize the impact during your visit please allow at least 20 extra minutes when heading south into town from I-70. Details on the status of the project can be found at udot.utah.gov. A webcam from the intersection of Highways 191 and 128 is available here.
