MDOHVA has helped change the way the State of Maryland, and Maryland Department of Natural Resources interact and view OHV recreation. The Office of Outdoor Recreation will work to capitalize on the economic befits of ALL recreational activities, which goes hand in hand with our community.
A recent economic study on the Great Allegheny Passage found hikers/bikes spend around $100.00 per day, and almost $500.00 on an over night trip. Data from the Hatfield McCoy Trail System in WV shows day trip users spending over $500.00 on a day trip, and $1,100.00 on an overnight night trip. Showing OHV tourism punches far above our weight on economic impacts. Making us one of the more ideal recreation groups for this new Office to capitalize on.
Please take the time to check out this magazine, and their article about the Daniel Boone Byway. It is a very strong example why organizations like ours exist, and why we continue to need your support. If you have ever thought about becoming a board member, there is no better time than now. Getting involved now helps create a legacy of cooperation that is paramount to our success.
