Sadly, my friend, you and your ilk are in the great minority. Most people enjoying the great outdoors courtesy of a motorized vehicle make bigger messes, clean up no more, and burn a great deal more fuel because they are hauling their offroad toys on trailers and in large trucks
I have to disagree

most people's perception of environmental damage is what is screamed at them by environmentally uneducated media and zealots who know just enuf buzz words to be dangerous

the hugest examples of erosion I have ever seen are not due to man, but nature

I don't think there is any difference between offroaders hauling toys or hikers travelling in cages to get to the mountains, for both, the largest impact is the impervious parking lot they park in, increasing rate of runoff, swells streams and less recharge to aquifer
