NOHVA members work to help fund, maintain, improve, protect and preserve six existing public areas to ride ATV, dirtbikes and UTVs for recreation in Nebraska. 

The Nebraska Off Highway Vehicle Association is a non-profit organization formed to benefit all terrain vehicle (ATV), off-road motorcycle (dirtbike) and UTV riders.

Nebraska is the last state in the nation where people can ride public trails for free, where no license or registration is required.  Thus there are no state funds for trails and no state management.  NOHVA helps fill this funding and management gap with volunteers and funding from voluntary membership fees and jamborees. 

The goals of the Nebraska Off Highway Vehicle Association are:
>> Preserve existing places to ride in Nebraska
>> Promote responsible and safe ATV, dirtbike and UTV use
>> Educate ATV, dirtbike and UTV enthusiasts
>> Assist in the development and management of new places to ride in Nebraska

>> Defend recreational ATV, dirtbike and UTV  owners against discriminatory legislation

NOHVA, Nebraska & National News & Alerts 
This Website Was Updated On Sunday April 13, 2014

May 17 and 18 - The Halsey Ride and Volunteer Clean Up Days at the Nebraska National Forest near Halsey Nebraska are planned for May 17 and 18. The primary activity planned is to get out and ride with other enthusiasts and help clean accumulated sand out from under the cattle crossings or sometimes referred to as jump ups at fence crossings. Trees and tree branches that are blocking trails will be trimmed. Some trails may need some minor repair.

Free Friday, Saturday and early Sunday camping in the group camp ground will be available to those who help on these days. Bar-b-ques or cookouts provided by NOHVA will be offered in the group camp ground on Saturday night. Group rides will be held on Sunday mornings.  Contact us for more information.
NOHVA 2014 Summer Jamboree planned for June 6, 7 and 8  This is the biggest Jamboree in Nebraska with 1,000 to 1,500 riders and seven separate riding events!  The Jamboree is a fund raising event to help pay expenses to operate public ATV, dirtbike and UTV/side-by-side parks and trails in Nebraska, and benefit local Emergency and Medical services in Nance County.  The event is open to ATVs and UTVs under 65 inches wide and dirtbikes.  Everyone must have an event pass to race or watch, and everyone under 18 must be with a parent or have a completed and notarized NOHVA permission letter from parents.

NOHVA's role in the management of the Headworks OHV Park near Genoa  NOHVA does not own the riding area. It is owned by a public power district, which is a public business. The Headworks OHV Park is operated by a triad partnership between the Loup Power District, the Nance County Sheriffs Department and the Nebraska Off Highway Vehicle Association since 1990. It is not really public land as the land owners control who has access. However, Loup Power does state that if something would happen to our group, and no other group like ours replaces us to help manage the riding area, the riding area will close. It's all in Loup Power's documents to the federal government. As an organization we have spent over $200,000 over the last 20 years to help keep the riding area open. Sure, plenty of non-members have helped with the area, but when there is a problem that needs to be addressed, volunteers are needed or something needs to be purchased, who do they call?  They call NOHVA.

Thank you to Can-Am and Norfolk Motoplex
for donating the use of two new Can-Am off road machines for use the Headworks OHV Park!
