SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Managers at the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest want people to remember that all-terrain doesn't mean all-access when it comes to off-road vehicles.

Forest supervisor Brian Ferebee says people on dirt bikes, ATVs and other motorized vehicles can damage the forest when taken out of the designated areas and trails.

The forest can be particularly vulnerable to damage by motorized vehicles when the ground is wet.

Ferebee says drivers are also supposed to stay on the trails and make way for hikers and other people in the forest.
