Sitting On The Sidelines Is Not An Option Rob Dingman, AMA President and CEO As I reflect on the unprecedented attacks on motorcycling and ATV riding in 2009, and the enormity of the challenges ahead, I have reached an inescapable conclusion: No longer can any motorcyclist or ATV rider afford to sit on the sidelines. Gone are the days when we can page through bike and ATV reviews, get recommendations from friends, buy a used or new motorcycle or ATV, and just go riding. Not if we expect to do so in five, 10 or 20 years. If this sounds like “Chicken Little” thinking, think again. Do you enjoy riding off-road on public land? Last year, 2 million acres were lost to inappropriate federal Wilderness designations, and there are many more millions of acres being targeted by Congress right now. OK, you tell yourself, I can always go riding at my local MX track. Not so fast—every week we learn of MX tracks in under threat of closure due to noise complaints. There are many ways elected officials and government bureaucrats can put an end to where and how we ride. Sometimes all it takes is a stroke of the pen. That’s what happened last year when President Obama signed into
law the Revolutionary War and War of 1812 Battlefield Protection Act, which validated the biggest congressional land grab in modern history by designating more than 2 million acres as federally protected Wilderness— the majority of which didn’t meet the original congressional definition of Wilderness—with virtually no public debate or scrutiny. Or in 2008, when then-President Bush signed into law the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA). Six months later, the lead-content provisions of the CPSIA resulted in the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s ban on the sale of youth-model dirtbikes and ATVs, forcing families to choose adult-sized machines for their kids—putting them at great risk—and devastating a segment of the motorsports community that was already reeling from a major recession. It’s time to stop blaming those who don’t ride your kind of machine, or hang with your crowd, or share your political beliefs, and recognize that anyone in power who does not ride a motorcycle or ATV cares little about the future of motorcycling or ATVing in any form. If we expect to preserve our sport and our lifestyle for our and future generations, we must close ranks like
there’s no tomorrow. How? If you’re reading this, as an ATVA member, you’re already part of the solution. But there are not nearly enough of us to withstand these multi-pronged attacks. Many ATVA and AMA members like to think we are the National Rifle Association (NRA) of the motorcycling world, yet we only have 245,000 members out of more than 20 million estimated riders. The NRA has more than 4 million members, not to mention a constitutional amendment that protects its members rights. There is no constitutional right to ride a motorcycle or ATV. It’s a hard-earned privilege that we must step up and defend. The bottom line: Each of us has to recruit more members for the ATVA and AMA army. We all have friends who ride but are not members. Persuade them to join. Also, only buy from ATV and motorcycle businesses that support the ATVA and AMA. Tell those who don’t that they risk losing your business. Now is the time to join forces and stand shoulder-to-shoulder on the front lines.

Off-highway riders need to act to keep public land open to riding.
Concerns Raised Over Proposals That Could Close Public Land The ATVA is monitoring several new congressional bills that have the potential to close off-highway vehicle (OHV) riders out of public land in three states. • In Montana, S. 1470, the Forest Jobs and Recreation Act introduced by Sen. Jon Tester (R-Mont.) • In California, S. 2921, the California Desert Protection Act of 2010, sponsored by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.); and H.R. 4304, the Beauty Mountain and Agua Tibia Wilderness Act of 2009, introduced by Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) • In Colorado, H.R. 4289, the Colorado Wilderness Act of 2009 sponsored by Rep. Diana DeGette (D-Colo.) would designate 850,000 acres in Colorado as Wilderness. The Tester bill would designate
600,000 acres in Montana as Wilderness, shutting out off-road riders, bicyclists and others. “The AMA and ATVA appreciate Sen. Tester’s effort to reach out to the offhighway vehicle community in an attempt to make this bill better for every user of our public land,” says Ed Moreland, vice president for government relations at the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA), which is the sister organization of the ATVA. “But the AMA and ATVA oppose this bill as it is currently written. We ask that Sen. Tester work with the AMA and ATVA, and other groups, to address rider concerns so that families can continue to enjoy OHV trails in a responsible manner,” Moreland says. In a letter dated March 10 he told
a key U.S. House committee that the ATVA opposes DeGette’s bill because, among other reasons, the public land contains dams, power lines, bridges and structures—all of which violate the congressional mandate that Wilderness only include land untrammeled by man. “By designating these public lands Wilderness, the legislation will close off responsible motorized access to hundreds of thousands of acres,” he wrote. Moreland says people who enjoy outdoor motorized recreation need to let their lawmakers know they want a full public debate before any more land is designated as Wilderness. They can contact their lawmakers by going to the Rapid Response Center at ATVAonline. com.
Federal Product Safety Agency Delays Enforcement Of Lead Testing The federal Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has given a break, at least temporarily, to the makers of kids’ ATVs and dirtbikes. In December, the commission voted to delay until Feb. 10, 2011, the requirement that makers of products for children 12 and under have those products certified to contain little or no lead by a government-approved independent lab. The testing is a requirement under the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (CPSIA), which bans the making, importing, 4 March/April 2010
distributing or selling of any product intended for children 12 and under that contains more than 600 parts per million of lead in any accessible part. That threshold dropped to 300 parts per million on Aug. 14, 2009, and will drop to 100 parts per million after Aug. 14, 2011. With no way to quickly test and certify that their products met those limits, motorcycle and ATV manufacturers told their dealers to stop selling machines intended for kids 12 and under because the machines contain lead in some components.
NEWS The U.S. Forest Service may see reduced funding for motorized trails under the budget being considered in Congress.
Forest Trails In Danger Many off-highway vehicle (OHV) riding trails in America’s national forests could deteriorate dramatically, or even disappear, under the new federal budget for 2011 proposed by President Barack Obama to Congress on Feb. 1. Under the proposal, which must be approved by Congress before it becomes law, funding for the U.S. Agriculture Department’s Capital Improvement and Maintenance (CIM) program would be slashed by $100 million from the $538 million appropriated for the current fiscal year, which began Oct. 1, to $438 million for the next fiscal year. “This could be disastrous for off-highway riders because CIM program money is used for the improvement, maintenance and operation of U.S. Forest Service roads, trails and recreational support,” says Ed Moreland, vice president for government relations for the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA), which is the sister organization of the ATVA. Moreland notes that in explaining
the reduction, President Obama’s administration says that it wants to focus the Forest Service on “road decommissioning, erosion control, watershed health and forest restoration.” “Very little of the proposed CIM budget supports trail-building or maintenance,” Moreland says. “This is another way to limit trail-riding opportunities for families, the disabled and others who enjoy the beauty of our federal lands on motorized vehicles. “The truth is that underfunded forest managers will find it more expedient to close trails rather than maintain them with this plan,” he says. “Proper funding of maintenance programs is crucial to the administration’s stated goals of erosion control, watershed health and forest restoration.” The budget proposal is disturbing because it comes at a time when the Forest Service is writing a new planning rule to manage the land it controls, and it is starting the process guided by the principles of restoration, conservation and protection of ecosystems.
Insurance Refuses To Pay For ATV-Related Injuries Imagine getting seriously hurt in an ATV accident and then having your health insurance company refuse to pay the medical bills because you were riding an ATV. It happens. On Feb. 16 an Illinois woman was forced to file a lawsuit after her health insurance company refused to pay for her daughter’s medical care following a July 19 ATV crash. Carrie Lutman of Ellis Grove filed the lawsuit in Madison County Court against her insurance company, Meritain, alleging the company refused to pay her daughter Geanene’s medical bills because her policy states it won’t pay for injuries sustained while engaged in a hazardous hobby or activity. That is defined in the policy as “an activity which is characterized by a constant threat of danger or risk of bodily harm. Examples of hazardous hobbies or activities are skydiving, auto racing, hang gliding, jet ski operating or bungee jumping.” The lawsuit states the medical bills should be paid because the policy doesn’t specifically label ATV riding as a hazardous activity. Lutman is seeking more than $100,000. The ATVA has been fighting this type of health-insurance discrimination for years and is now on Capitol Hill lobbying to change the law so that this form of discrimination no longer exists. In 1996, Congress passed the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) that included language prohibiting employers from denying health-care coverage based on participating in legal activities such as ATV riding. But federal bureaucrats wrote rules that reversed the intent of Congress. So check your medical insurance policy for “Exclusions.” That’s where your insurance company spells out what it won’t cover. It’s better to find out before a crash and medical bills pile up. 5
Federal Bureau Considering Designating National Monuments Without Public Debate The U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is looking at designating as many as 13 million acres of land as National Monument without public debate. Ed Moreland, AMA vice president for government relations, sent a strong message to the BLM saying that any land-use designations that could affect off-highway riding need to be publicly
debated and have public input. “The AMA and ATVA are delivering the message that any measure to restrict our right to recreate responsibly on public land must be considered in the light of day,” Moreland says. “It is government’s responsibility to protect our lands for the people, not from the people, and that requires an open
and fair venue for public discourse,” he says. According to an internal U.S. Interior Department document publicized by the ATVA and others, the department is considering new National Monument designations totaling 13 million acres in 11 western states: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Wyoming. Many of the affected areas are also being considered by Congress for Wilderness designations, which would bar off-highway riding. While the ATVA and AMA support the appropriate designation of Wilderness areas as defined by the 1964 Wilderness Act, the associations oppose any process that doesn’t allow full public debate on the disposition of public land. “Any designation that restricts the public’s right to enjoy public lands must be debated publicly,” Moreland says. “We owe it to ourselves and future generations to individually deliberate the designation of each tract and collect input from all affected user groups, local and state elected officials and Congress before any designations are made.” All ATV and motorcycle riders should contact their elected representatives and voice support for public debate on the disposition of public land. Contact information for all elected federal officials can be found in the Rapid Response Center at ATVAonline.com.
Teach Kids The Right Way: A Free CD Helps Kids Learn Responsible Riding Looking for a great way to teach your kids the right way to ride off-road? A new—and free—interactive computer CD-ROM produced by the National OffHighway Vehicle Conservation Council (NOHVCC) with the help of the AMA and other groups could be just what you need for younger children. The free CD features an activities book that teaches kids about wearing the right gear, riding the right-size machine, sharing the trail with others, respecting animals and the land, riding a quiet machine, and more. In it, Little Penny and her raccoon buddy, Rascal, take kids on a trip along the Adventure Trail teaching them about responsible riding. Besides the activities book, the CD has short, entertaining film clips that reinforce the book’s messages. AMA/ATVA Government Affairs 6 March/April 2010
Manager Royce Wood says: “It’s important that kids develop good riding, safety and outdoor ethics habits early so that they will continue to be responsible off-highway riders as adults. “Responsible riding not only helps protect the environment and keeps riders safe, but it also goes a long way toward gaining the respect of non-riders. And that will help keep riding areas open now and in the future.” Others involved in helping NOHVCC produce the CD are the U.S. Forest Service, Motorcycle Industry Council, Specialty Vehicle Institute of America, U.S. Bureau of Land Management, Stay The Trail Colorado, Kansas State Parks, Montana Trail Vehicle Riders Association, Cheaha Trail Riders, Idaho State Parks and Recreation, Hatfield-McCoy Trails, Arizona State Parks, Alaska State Parks,
and the Vermont All-Terrain Vehicles Sportsman’s Association. To get a free Adventure Trail CD, e-mail your name, ATVA number and mailing address to adventuretrail@ atvaonline.com.

Club News The Woodtick Wheelers ATV/ OHM Club Is On A Mission We’ve heard good things about the Woodtick Wheelers ATV/OHM Club in Hackensack, Minn., so we contacted club President Dave Halsey to get the scoop on what the club is all about. Here’s what he had to say: What is the Woodtick Wheelers ATV/ OHM Club? The Woodtick Wheelers ATV/OHM Club was formed in July 2009, in response to the Chippewa National Forest (CNF) closing hundreds of miles of low-traveled roads to all-terrain vehicles and off-highway motorcycles. Our mission is to bring together ATV and OHM enthusiasts to enjoy, promote and protect responsible riding in and around the Chippewa National Forest in northern Minnesota. We named our club after the Woodtick Trail, a 15-mile road that’s over 100 years old. It was closed to all OHVs in the fall of 2008. The “NO OHV” signs went up and that was that—with fines totaling $175—denying access to the national forest to hundreds of families and retired seniors with ATVs. How many members do you have? Fifty people came to our first informational meeting in June 2009. By January 2010, we had 155 members,
including three business members. They own ATVs, UTVs and OHMs. They are 18 to 71 years old, and are long-time residents or seasonal cabin owners from near and far. What are some of the club’s activities? In our first three months, we partnered with the Chippewa National Forest to do two clean-up projects in the forest and re-open a short road to OHVs. We also held our first ATV Youth Safety Class in September, and helped with security at the Brainerd Ice Fishing Extravaganza in January. We are now planning club rides and fund-raisers for this summer and fall.
immediate riding area of over 200 square miles, most of it public land, our trails went from hundreds of miles of loops to a single, short dead-end. Many of our members who used to go on family rides into what is supposed to be public land to picnic, hunt, fish, watch birds or just enjoy the scenic beauty of this majestic pine forest now have zero access. Another big issue is that this area is a patchwork of federal, state and county land. At our very first meeting, we joked with federal, state and county officials that to ride an ATV in our area you need five maps and a lawyer. It would be funny if it wasn’t so true.
What are some of the biggest issues facing club members? Our single biggest issue is the loss of roads and trails that some of our members had been riding on for 40 years. In our

Ask The ATV Safety Institute: Children On ATVs YOU ASK: My daughter is 12 years old and wants to ride an ATV. How do I know she is ready to ride, and how do I know whether an ATV is the right size for her? The ASI Responds: We’ll take your questions in reverse order. All ATVs are now categorized for minimum age based on top speed (previously, minimum ages were based on engine size). Your starting point would be an ATV bearing one of the labels shown. Now comes the harder part. Not all 12-year-olds have the strength, skills or judgment needed to operate an ATV. We’ve identified five qualities that contribute to the ability to ride safely. 1. Physical size: Can she comfortably reach and work all the controls? Can she operate the throttle and brake levers while holding onto the handgrips and turning the handlebars? When she stands on the footrests, are there at least three inches of clearance between the ATV seat and the “seat of
her pants?” These factors help ensure she can control the ATV and shift her body around to maintain balance. 2. Athletic ability: Is she good at riding a bicycle? Can she judge distances while throwing a ball? Does she get injured often when playing sports? Anyone who doesn’t have good coordination and agility is not ready to ride an ATV. 3. Social/emotional development: Is she willing to follow rules, especially rules you set for her own safety? Is she generally a responsible individual, or does she get distracted easily? Certain
rules are necessary for the safe operation of any vehicle. 4. Reasoning and decision-making ability: Does she know why she needs to look in both directions before crossing a street? Does she know why it’s dangerous to mimic the extreme stunts professional riders exhibit on TV and in video games? Riders need to understand that making poor choices and taking unsafe actions can hurt. 5. Visual perceptions and motor development: Can your daughter see and react with the proper hand, foot or body movement? Can she judge how far one object is from another? Is she good at playing video games? ATV riding requires a person to judge distances and react properly. On our website—ATVSafety.org— you and your daughter can read our “Parents, Youngsters, and All-Terrain Vehicles” booklet, take our E-Course, and sign up for a hands-on ATV RiderCourse. ATVs are fun, but they’re not toys. 7
WITH YOUR KIDS

possible. Don’t even allow your child to sit on an ATV without wearing a helmet. Also, remember that kids are susceptible to peer pressure, which might persuade them to do things they shouldn’t do. Counter that with parental guidance. And a parent who is along for the ride is in the best position to realize when a young rider could be in over his or her head. That’s the time to stop and offer guidance. In addition, it’s a parent’s job to watch for signs that the kids need to take a break.
It’s springtime, and with spring comes all the excitement of a new riding season. If you’re a parent, you probably want to share the excitement of ATV riding with your children by going on great rides together and exploring new trails. Proper preparation will keep the riding enjoyable for everyone. If your child isn’t already riding an ATV, then there are several honest emotional, physical and mental assessments that you, as a parent, need to make before deciding whether to allow your child to ride. First, determine whether your child is truly interested in riding ATVs. Most parents are eager to pass their enthusiasm for ATVs on to the next generation, but the interest has to come from the child. Next, assess whether your son or daughter is physically ready to ride an ATV. Standing on the pegs or floorboard, there should be a minimum three-inch clearance between the seat and the child’s inseam. He or she needs to be able to comfortably reach the control levers, and have the hand strength to operate them. (For more information, see
“Ask The ATV Safety Institute” on page 7.) And then there’s the mental aspect, which requires careful evaluation. Can the child comprehend risk, and recognize and reduce it? Can the child concentrate and does he or she have patience? Safety First You can’t eliminate all the risk related to riding an ATV, but you can reduce risk with intelligent preparation and careful prevention. Riding gear is essential for safe riding. Start out with basic gear like a DOTapproved helmet, goggles, boots, gloves and sturdy jeans as your child learns the sport. If he or she likes riding enough to keep doing it, you’ll likely want to buy more specialized gear, such as specific motorcycle/ATV boots. If your child is serious about the sport, then you may want to spring for a proper jersey and pants combo with built-in padding, as well as a chest protector with sufficient back protection. It’s important to develop a child’s sense of personal safety as early as
Spring Training The best way to train your kid to ride an ATV is to get training through a recognized program. For information on courses, contact the ATV Safety Instititute at (800) 887-2887 or visit ATVSafety.org. If you can’t find a program near you, then you’ll have to train your child yourself. The ATV owner’s manual may offer riding advice. Here are some tips: • Communication is vital. Explain in detail each action the child needs to perform. For example, until you explain how, your child won’t know that “shift to a lower gear’’ actually means “tap the shifter down with your toe.’’ • Take it one step at a time. There are a lot of steps involved in operating an ATV, and riding safely is a process involving many steps. Concentrate on the basics until your child demonstrates complete control of the machine. • Remember that a child masters each skill at his or her own pace. It will take time before your child progresses enough to combine several skills simultaneously. • Praise your child for progress made. • Don’t let your child’s frustrations frustrate you. If things aren’t going well, taking a break is often the best solution. Talk about what is going well and what skills need improvement while resting and having a drink and a snack. • Work within your child’s limits. Just
because one child learned a certain skill quickly doesn’t necessarily mean another one will. Honor the fact that every child learns differently. • Be the voice of reason. Only allow your child to try something new after honestly assessing his or her ability to succeed at it. If there’s any question, err on the side of restraint. • Remember that it’s tough for young learners to be aware of everything that’s going on around them. Be your child’s eyes and ears while he or she is riding. If you see a danger sign, take action immediately. • New riders need supervision. The best way to assess your child’s skills is to be along for the ride yourself, so you can stop and offer guidance exactly when it’s needed. Where To Ride Once your child learns to handle an ATV, one of the biggest issues you’ll face involves finding a place to ride that’s both legal and appropriate for beginners. In some parts of the country, particularly on the East Coast and near large metro areas, finding legal riding areas can be challenging. That’s because more riding areas are being closed down by suburban growth and overzealous attacks from anti-access groups. In some cases, even operating an ATV in your own yard is becoming an issue. Local contacts are your best bet for finding legal riding areas. No matter where you live, there are likely ATV enthusiasts near you who can help you find places to ride. Ask your local dealers if they know of legal places to ride, or any ATV clubs you can join. You can also find places to ride by going to the ATVA’s website at ATVAonline.com. Click on the “Riding” button and you will find places to ride in various states as well as a members-only trails database. When considering riding areas, remember that not all riding areas will be ideal for beginners. Pick your area carefully. Ask around about private riding parks and tracks. In some states, privately owned riding areas are the most abundant riding options. These parks generally charge a fee, normally by the day, and have rules that must be followed. You may have local, state or federal
public land in your area that allows riding. There, you may find yourself sharing the trails with hikers, horseback riders and others. It’s vital to teach your child to respect both other trail users and the environment. Getting Ready To Ride Before heading out for a ride, make sure the child’s ATV works properly. Check the owner’s manual for a detailed pre-ride checklist and go through it the night before. And start your ATV to make sure it is in good operating condition. The night before is also a good time to gather up the things you and your child will need for the outing and load them, if possible. Have your child practice gearing up so that he or she can do so easily in the morning. A good night’s sleep is vital so that everyone is energetic and in a good mood the next morning for the ride. Things to take for the trip include a first-aid kit, snacks such as bananas, apples, granola bars and crackers, and juice and water. Consider bringing coloring books or video games to keep your child occupied during the drive to the riding area. Towels and extra water are also good things to have to handle spills or emergency clean ups. It’s easy to overlook something. You can involve your child in the trip planning by having a checklist of the things you need to take and then having him or her check them off the list while you supervise. Trail Etiquette A very important point to teach your child for trail riding is to stay on the trail. Riding off the trail impacts the environment. It’s also a safety issue because there could be hidden hazards off the trail. Watch for two-way traffic and be courteous to other trail users. Go slow around corners and when you encounter others, leave plenty of room to pass. If you encounter horses it’s a good idea to pull off the trail, stop and shut off your
motor. Teach your child to be very careful around water crossings. Sometimes trails hold standing water after heavy rains, and mud holes can be deep. Only cross streams at designated crossing areas. It’s imperative that your machines have quiet exhaust systems with U.S. Forest Service-approved spark arresters. Keep in mind that if there is a fire caused by your machine, you could be liable for the cost of fighting the blaze. Taking Along Your Child’s Friends Your child’s friends may be ATV riders and want to come along for a ride. ATV riding involves risks so you need to take special care when bringing other children along. Know the rules of the other parents. If they won’t let their children ride on difficult trails, you shouldn’t either. A good rule of thumb is to always enforce the strictest rule for all the children present. Know the rules where you ride. Many private riding areas won’t let a minor ride without a signed, notarized release from both parents. In fact, some won’t let a minor ride at all without a parent or legal guardian present. Find out before you go. Keeping all the children safe is your primary responsibility, after all. Be sure you know how to contact other parents in the event of an emergency, should the need arise. 9

the park—with a goal of 140 miles of 4 trails, a new visitor’s center, improved beach facilities, canoe rentals, and an events area with a competitive mud pit already in progress. Plans also include a 200-site campground for recreational vehicles (RVs), pop-ups and tents, as well as several remote ride-to tent sites. Until the park’s campground is completed, overnight visitors can take advantage of several other state parks in the region. State park campgrounds offer tent sites, RV sites and even yurts available for rent. There are other accommodations with local lodging properties available within a 20-mile radius. Jericho Mountain has quickly become e ng
In the northeastern United States, a premier destination awaits for ATV, trail bike, and utility-terrain vehicle users. Jericho Mountain State Park, in Berlin, N.H., is one of the newest additions to the New Hampshire State Park system and promises lots of excitement. Purchased with funds from off-highway vehicle registrations, this 7,500-acre park is the first state park with a primary, designated use of OHV trail riding. Jericho Mountain currently offers more than 50 miles of riding geared to all ability levels. Trails range from smooth and open roads, to tight and twisting trails that pass over rocky streams and up to commanding vistas. Visitors can also enjoy a swim down at the beach, as well as fishing or canoeing on Jericho Lake. Several picnic and toilet facilities are located throughout the park. Jericho Mountain State Park has only been open for three years, so this is just the beginning of an exciting future for
the hub of trail riding for the Great North Woods Region of the state. Within this region are several other public trail systems offering hundreds of additional trail miles, which are operated by various clubs. Riders should be aware that some of these trail systems only allow ATVs and UTVs—they don’t allow motorcycles. Many of the trails in this region are in timber and logging areas, so riders will want to use caution. Recently, the city of Berlin opened a connecting route from Jericho Mountain leading through downtown to the 20-mile Success Trail on the other side of the city. Riders can ride directly to food, fuel and other services. All state and city laws for riding apply. Jericho Mountain State Park is open for riding during the summer, fall and winter, but is closed for “mud season,” which lasts from the end of winter snow cover to May 23. Riders in New Hampshire will need to make sure that their OHV is registered, and take note of the special laws regarding children. The park is off State Route 110, just a few miles northwest of downtown Berlin, and a 3½-hour drive from Boston. Jericho Mountain State Park is operated by the New Hampshire Division of Parks and Recreation‘s Bureau of Trails, with help from the Androscoggin Valley ATV Club. The park’s master plan document is available on the Bureau of Trails website at NHTrails.org. The website also includes detailed information about the park, including a map of the property, and is an excellent resource for finding rules, registration requirements, riding areas and other OHV questions about riding in New Hampshire. On July 10-11, 2010, Jericho Mountain State Park will host the first Jericho ATV Festival.
