TheWashington Off Highway Vehicle Alliance (WOHVA)and theNorthwest Motorcycle Association (NMA)have joined forces to improve your OHV experiences all across Washington State.
WOHVAhas officially applied for a NOVA grant to purchase & fund operation of a Bobcat E32 mini-excavator. The grant will include a trailer to transport the machine, a brush flail, a rock bucket & a soft soils bucket with thumb. We also built in some money to cover fuel & insurance on the machine. The intent is to perform needed maintenance of 2-track trails (4x4, SxS, ATV) on public lands all across Washington State during 2019 & 2020.
TheNMAis partnering with us on this adventure and has submitted both NOVA & RTP grant applications to purchase & fund operation of a 24 inch wide Single Track 240 (ST240 video). The intent is to perform needed maintenance of single track trails on public lands all across Washington State during 2019 & 2020.
Now is the time to make sure your favorite trail gets on our list of places needing heavy maintenance work!
If you are a 4x4, SxS or ATV user, please take our 2-track survey! LINK
If you are a single track rider, please take the NMA survey! LINK
The purchased equipment will be provided to local volunteers working with land managers (FS, DNR, etc) and supported by paid operators provided by WOHVA or the NMA. The goal is to accomplish trail maintenance as needed to maintain those trails to the proper standards.
We need to know about 2-track & single track trails on public lands that have been damaged by wildfires, logging or have just not been maintained to the specifications for the currently assigned management objective. For example, a trail rated as Moderate that has become More Difficult (or worse) due to trail tread degradation and/or lack of proper water runoff control. We also want to know about under utilized 2-track trails needing brush out.
