Under much-debated legislation passed by the Idaho Legislature this year, youngsters 15 and younger who ride off-highway vehicles on U.S. Forest Service roads are required to be supervised by an adult who is riding within 300 fee; also, all riders who lack driver's licenses, including youngsters, must take an approved off-highway vehicle safety course. The new law, SB 1001, takes effect July 1, but the state Department of Parks and Recreation is urging young off-road enthusiasts to sign up for the required classes now. “Our agency would like to encourage people to take classes early, so that we can accurately gauge what demand is going to be for the classes and do our best through the summer to help accommodate that demand,” said Jennifer Blazek, state parks spokeswoman.

Idaho’s state Department of Parks & Recreation will dedicate a new ATV/motorbike trail on Sept. 11 from the Land of the Yankee Fork State Park Interpretive Center to Bayhorse. The new 9-mile trail is named in honor of Ernie Lombard, a Boise architect and longtime state Parks Board member, and its current vice-chairman, who worked for more than 20 years to establish the trail. A group ride and BBQ lunch are planned; click below for full info.
