Please choose your preferred option for managing unlicensed Off Highway Vehicles (OHVs) on county roads. You will have the opportunity to comment further in the space provided below.
Scenario #4: Open all county roads with less than 100 vehicle trips per day to OHVs and ATVs. This option includes opening the backside of Aspen Mountain to the vehicles.


Do you have any other additional comments?
This is a very enlightened proposal. I hope that it is one that the county can support. I would consider either scenarios 3 or 4 to be a major step forward for OHV access in Pitkin.

Scenario #1: Status quo approach where all county roads would remain off limits to OHVs and ATVs according to state law


Do you have any other additional comments?
I am not opposed to ATVs per se, but nervous about precedent set if roads are open when there is existing state legislature that is more conservative. There is increasing usage overall in the county's back country and prefer to keep it prioritizing a lighter footprint.

I see a lot now of whole families on ATVs on forest service roads where they are not supposed to be but they are having so much fun I never say anything, just wave. I think some local property owners want to keep the 'little people' out

My husband and I live down valley. We are outdoor enthusiasts, participating in nordic and downhill skiing in the winter, hiking and off-road motorcycling in the summer. I am unable to hike any great distance so my OHV gets me into the backcountry and closer to Wilderness areas and then I hike. I support Scenario #4 for the reason that this is the only way I can get close enough to enjoy our beautiful backcountry environment.

My personal opinion is the county needs all the revenue it can get and OHV brings a lot of tax revenue to CO period let alone Pitkin county, please don't run us off anymore land than we already have - if people are not obeying the rules of the road they should be ticketed just as a normal driver - please don't take anymore riding away from our great state!

ATV and other slow moving vehicles should be readily recognizable by a flag and a triangle attached for traffic to see. Opening the roads to use for OHVs and ATVs helps to encourage tourist to travel there and spend money. This is good for local businesses and helps your tax revenue. Opening the roads will leave tourist with a positive impression and would like to visit again.

More miles of access spreads out the usage load per road/trail.
