The Redbird Crest and White Sulphur OHV Trail are the two designated OHV trail systems on the forest. Other short distance trails provide forest access for hunters and other occasional users.

The list of trails below and the motor vehicle use map for each district illustrate where designated trails are located. All other areas of the forest are closed to OHV use.

  • Vehicles 50 inches or less in width may ride all designated OHV trails identified on the motor vehicle use maps.
  • Vehicles greater than 50 inches in width are prohibited on all trails except the Sand Hills Road section of the Redbird Crest Trail. Vehicles using this section of trail must be licensed for road use.
  • Vehicles greater than 50 inches wide may use Forest Service roads which are identified on the motor vehicle use map as open to the public. These vehicles must be licensed for road use according to state laws.
  • All cross country motorized travel and use of trails not identified on the motor vehicle use map are prohibited.
