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.
On this web site, the Motor Vehicle Use Map consists of many different documents (PDF format)/individual maps layed out in a grid of maps covering Mt. Hood National Forest (similar to an atlas). Please use the PDF document below labeled "Key Locator Grid Map" to help find the specific location of Mt. Hood National Forest in which you're interested. (Suggestion: you may find it helpful to also refer to a separate map of Mt. Hood National Forest while using the Key Locator Grid Map to find the specific area in which you're interested.)
There are now three locations on Mt. Hood National Forest in which OHV vehicles can be used:
Westside of Mt. Hood
The area closed due to the 36 Pit Fire. Click here for more information.
Eastside of Mt. Hood
Our Motor Vehicle User Map is being updated. We're hoping to have a new version with update road and recreational information next year. In the mean time, please use the links below to access maps of the OHV areas on the Eastside of Mt. Hood.
