Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area OHV Designated Routes

Starting in 2015, designated motorized travel routes were established for the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. These designated routes are marked by new signs on designated trails, their intersections, and beginning/ending points; additional trail markers along the designated trails; new information boards with maps of the adjacent riding area; and new interactive, GPS-enabled maps to help guide you on the new designations.

OHV Riders Looking at MapRiding Area Maps

Geospatially enabled PDF (geoPDF) maps are available for download below. When you open a geoPDF, you can find locations, measure distances, and add location markers. You can also copy coordinates to the clipboard for use with a web mapping service.

To use a geoPDF on your computer you must have Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, which can be downloaded for free. Once the map is open in Acrobat Reader DC you can view the geospatial measuring tools by choosing Tools > Measure.

You can also load these maps on to any GPS-enabled mobile device using an app such as Avenza Maps (we recommend carrying a paper map as backup). You can watch a short video about using the maps on your mobile device here.

To load the map in the app, copy the map url from our website, open the PDF Maps app and tap the + button at the top-right of the maps list. In the ‘From the Web’ box, paste the URL into the box to download and process the map. Once loaded, you can use your device's built-in GPS to track your location on the map, plot and record information about locations, import and export placemarks, measure distance and area, and even plot photos.
