EVANSTON — Tuesday afternoon the Uinta County Commissioners approved the use of OHV’s/ ATV’s on certain county roads with the use of the State’s OHV sticker program.

According to Mark Tesoro, chairman of the board, “This is a major hurdle for Southwest Wyoming Off-road Trails (SWOT) and a testament to the hard work and dedication of the board. The approved county roads would connect Evanston to Bridger Valley along the old Lincoln Highway and from there to the forest.

“In addition, another leg was created from Evanston toward Yellowcreek and into the forest from that direction. Approximately 80 miles were requested for the loop connection. Much thanks to the board members who were able to attend the meeting and work session,” Tesoro added.

He also extended a ‘special thanks to Gary Welling from the county and Chris Floyd from the State Outdoor Rec Office’ for the final presentation.

“This is another exciting piece of the puzzle to get the trail system off the ground,” Tesoro said.

The next SWOT board meeting will be Wednesday, Feb 10. Please call Todd Griffith at 679-4255 or Tseoro at 679-6316 for any questions.
