Volunteers Provide Interpretive Information Along Paiute Trail on National Trails Day
Long-time friend of NOHVCC Max Reid recently sent us some information about a National Trails Day project we had to share. For those who don’t know Max, he retired from the Forest Service ten years ago, but his passion for OHV recreation and the Paiute Trail in Utah remain strong. One of his first days on the job with the Fishlake National Forest Max was told he would be the Fishlake National Forest’s Captain of the Paiute Trail. Max admits that he initially thought the trail was a “dumb idea.” But, nearly 30 years later he continues to serve on the Paiute Trail Committee and remains a dedicated ambassador for the Paiute Trail – he definitely changed his mind!
The Paiute Trail is a public OHV trail system located in Central Utah, managed by the Fishlake National Forest and the Richfield District of the Bureau of Land Management. It has over 2,000 miles of trail and is credited with bringing tremendous positive economic impact to the region. Max’s pride in the trail shines through when he says, “I believe the Paiute Trail is the best managed and marked system in the United States and possibly the world.”
