Off-Highway Vehicle Travel Management Plan

Off Highway Vehicle Users Recreate on Mt. Hood National Forest

Off-Highway Vehicle Management Plan Now in Effect for Mt. Hood National Forest

After several years of hard work on the part of the public and the Forest Service, the Off-Highway Vehicle Management Plan is now in effect on Mt. Hood National Forest. The result of the Off-Highway Vehicle Management Plan is the Motor Vehicle Use Map.   

The 2005 Travel Management Rule directed each national forest to designate roads, trails, and locations that are open to motor vehicles.  All roads and areas on Mt. Hood National Forest are closed to motor vehicles unless designated open and depicted open to motor vehicles on the Motor Vehicle Use Map (MVUM). 

The Motor Vehicle Use Map will be used as a tool to guide OHV users to legal motorized locations on Mt. Hood National Forest.  The Motor Vehicle Use Map will also be the enforcement tool used to enforce where motor vehicles can legally travel while on Mt. Hood National Forest. Link to More Information
