Measuring impact in Moab and beyond

Measuring impact in Moab and beyond

If you love mountain biking in Utah, we need your help!

IMBA and our partners at Outdoor Alliance are studying the economic impact of human-powered recreation on the Manti La Sal National Forest in Utah. If you’ve visited, please help us out by taking this survey. Quantifying this impact will help us advocate for mountain biking and make a case for protecting and encouraging outdoor recreation opportunities in the upcoming forest plan revision.

Covering more than 1.2 million acres of public land in the central and southeastern parts of Utah, the Manti La Sal National Forest ranges from the Abajo and La Sal mountains in southeastern Utah to the Wasatch Plateau and Sanpitch mountains hundreds of miles away in central Utah. If you've ridden sections of Moab's famed Whole Enchilada, you've ridden in the Manti La Sal. Filter rides in MTB Project by Manti La Sal National Forest for more familiar riding. 

Will you help by taking the survey on mountain biking on the Manti La Sal?
