Tread Lightly! Impact Report: Tusher Tunnel Project

Project # 3 of 12

Project: Can-Am Tusher Tunnel Cable Barrier Repair Installation
Location: Utah

Description: This project was funded by Can-Am Off-Road. Can-Am has committed to funding twelve trail stewardship projects in the state of Utah in partnership with Tread Lightly! to help maintain and improve access to public lands and off-road trails. 

On August 4, 2022, volunteers from Red Rock 4-Wheelers, GS3 Outfitters and High Point Hummer and ATV Tours worked along with the Bureau of Land Management and Tread Lightly! to replace old posts and the rope barrier at the Tusher Tunnel parking area near Moab. Despite the high temperatures, the volunteers removed and replaced nearly 20 posts. Other posts that were still in good condition were also reset for better stability. The old rope barrier which was deteriorating was removed and replaced with cable for better protection from off trail excursions which protects vegetation.

Thank you to all of the partners that supported this project:

  • Can-Am Off-Road
  • Red-Rock 4-Wheelers
  • GS3 Outfitters
  • Highpoint Hummer and ATV Tours
  • Bureau of Land Management, Moab Field Office

“With Moab being such an iconic off-road destination, you have to love the opportunity to give back to the public lands in the area. A special “thank you” to the volunteers that braved the heat to make this project possible. And with this being a Can-Am supported project, it was great to see two of those volunteers show up in their Can-Ams.”-Matt Caldwell, Executive Director, Tread Lightly!

“Public lands hold a promise, a core promise to our freedoms. The are a direct representation of our individual and collective freedom as Americans and should be shown the respect they represent. Trail repair, clean up and other related projects are just a small way to pay homage to that promise, individually or collectively as a group. GS3 Outfitters is proud to be a supportive part of that and the promise these lands hold for everyone in every form of recreation and access” -George Schultz, Owner, GS3 Outfitters
