DescriptionPennsylvania's Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) has been developing management plans to deal with the growing popularity of motorized recreation in the Commonwealth. Two important segments of off-highway vehicle use in Pennsylvania involve all-terrain vehicles and snowmobile riding. A pair of needs studies for these recreationists provides a unique opportunity to compare and contrast their needs and activities. While there are many similarities between the two, snowmobiles have a longer history of activity, which is reflected in the availability of trails. Consequently, snowmobile riders express the greatest needs in terms of trail system maintenance. Conversely, ATV riders have fewer places to ride and identifi ed new trails as their principal need.
