DescriptionObjectives of this study were to determine demographic and experience characteristics of OHV riders, examine their motivations and resource attribute preferences, and to investigate the correlation between preferences and support for management actions and perception of potential problems. Findings showed that information and parking, rules and signs, and the natural setting were the most important resource attributes for riders. Riders were aware of potential problems related to the activity and supported all the management actions described. Management implications of these findings are briefly discussed.
