Off-Highway Vehicle Program Economic Impact Survey

In recent years off-highway vehicle use has grown significantly throughout Arizona. With 365 riding days per year, scenic trails, and great weather, Arizona draws OHV enthusiasts from across the country to access our motorized trails. With Arizona’s growing OHV community in mind, Arizona State Parks has partnered with Arizona State University to better determine the economic impact this activity has in our state. Over the next 12 months Arizona State Parks will be collecting user surveys both electronically and at various riding areas throughout the state. Having a better understanding of spending behaviors, travel trends, and trail needs will aid us in providing a better statewide trail system, programs, and information to you, the OHV users. This survey is completely voluntary and we greatly appreciate all those that are willing to participate. The questionnaire should not take more than eight minutes to complete. Your response is extremely important and is vital to the success of this study and the future of our OHV trail system.

The Arizona Off-Highway Vehicle Ambassadors offers opportunities for you to come out, meet us and get to know the area at 5 very popular locations. These free 2-3 hour "Show Me" experience will introduce you to the area by reviewing maps, explaining the types of trails available in the area, review proper riding etiquette and safety information, and taking a ride around the areas. Bring your ATV, UTV, motorcycle, jeep or other off-highway vehicle and be ready to hit the trail.

What is an Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV)?

An OHV is just about any motor vehicle which is able to be operated off of paved or maintained roads, including a pickup truck, sport utility vehicle (SUV), four-wheel drive vehicle, all-terrain vehicle (ATV), dirtbike, dune buggy, sand rail or snowmobile. Off-Highway Vehicles may be used to access a particular destination – such as a remote campground – or be used as the essential part of the recreation experience, such dirt biking.
