OHV Riding & Camping

Choose from the following to find a site:


Off-highway vehicles (OHV) are welcome in the forest on the routes that are designed for their activity. In some places, OHV riders share the trail with hikers, bikers, and equestrians. More than 1,000 miles are designated for OHV use. You can only ride on these routes. You may see a path that looks suitable for an OHV, but only ride there if it is designated on the map for OHV use. You'll help protect forest resources by staying on legal routes when you bring your registered OHV to the forest. Because OHV use can affect soil erosion, water quality, wildlife habitat and bother nearby visitors who are sharing the forest; OHV riders are expected to be courteous, stay safe and abide by the rules.

Motor Vehicle Use Maps (MVUM) are also available. These maps show the National Forest System roads, National Forest System trails, and the areas on National Forest lands that are designated for motor vehicle use pursuant to 36 CFR 212.51. These MVUM's also identify the vehicle classes allowed on each route and in each area; and any seasonal restrictions that apply on these routes and in those areas.
