Notes From Last Meeting

What's the deal with this new ATV / UTV Association?

The Eagle Rock ATV / UTV Association meets the fourth Tuesday of the month from March through October at Papa Tom's Pizza (in back room) on 17th Street and Woodruff in Idaho Falls at 7:00 PM.  Dues are $24.00 a year per family or person.

Why do we need an ATV / UTV Association?


We need to be an organized group so that we have a voice with the BLM, Forest Service and the State Department of Parks and Recreation when they decide which roads should be open or closed to ATVs / UTVs.  The Association also knows when summer travel opens for Public Lands and National Forests etc.

About Eagle Rock ATV / UTV Association


Eagle Rock ATV / UTV Association is located in Idaho Falls, Idaho.

Idaho Falls is a thriving metropolis of about 50,000 people located in Eastern Idaho on the Snake River.

Eagle Rock was an early settlement established in the 1800s which later became known as Idaho Falls. Eagle Rock got its name from the Bald Eagles that nested on a small rocky island in the Snake River that runs through Idaho Falls. Bald Eagles are routinely seen in the Idaho Falls area.

Eagle Rock ATV promotes responsible riding such as staying on marked trails and respecting wildlife habitat etc. We also work with the Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management and Idaho Parks and Recreation Department on various projects and try to contribute to their local projects and plans.

Eagle Rock ATV has adopted several trails in the Kelley Canyon and Fall Creek areas which means we do trail maintenance in the Spring time when these areas can be accessed. There are always trees down after an Idaho winter and occasionally some washed out trails after the snows melt. With Forest Service supervision we have also built bridges across small streams, installed cattle guards in areas where livestock shares our resources and put up signs along established trails.

We have many excellent areas close to Idaho Falls that have really great trails to ride. No matter which direction you travel from Idaho Falls you can find great rides in relatively short distances.

Our riding season is kind of short, from about May to October due to winter snows and the higher elevations of some of trails.
