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)
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
responsible and safe ATV, dirtbike and UTV use
ATV, dirtbike and UTV enthusiasts
in the development and management of new places to ride
Defend recreational ATV, dirtbike and UTV owners against

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

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
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

Help Us At
Over the years there have been problems caused by riders
and those camping at Headworks Park near Genoa.
Everyone is expected to follow the posted rules. The Nance
County Sheriff’s Department now has the authority to remove
anyone violating the rules or acting in an irresponsible
manner. People can now be suspended from the park for a
specified length of time, depending upon the offense and the
discretion of the investigating officer.
We need YOUR
HELP to address these problems.
