E-Bikes Welcome On ‘Motorized Use’ Forest Service Trails, Roads

November 2019 Powersport News

Ogden, Utah – Electric bicycles, known commonly as e-bikes, have grown in popularity for both recreational use and hunting on public lands and are currently welcome on roads and trails where motorized vehicle travel is authorized throughout the Intermountain Region's 12 national forests and Curlew National Grassland.

The USDA Forest Service considers e-bikes as motorized vehicles and therefore does not allow their use on non-motorized National Forest system roads and trails.

The Forest Service encourages e-bike riders to consult their local National Forest or Grassland’s motor vehicle use map to ensure they’re riding on an approved motorized-use roads or trails and to exercise caution when traveling among other motor vehicles.
