ODOT Pit Play Area


Millican ODOT RiderThe ODOT Pit is managed by Central Oregon Combined OHV Operations for the Prineville District of the BLM. The ODOT pit is considered one of the best play area in the state of Oregon. It provides challenges for riders at all levels of experience. The gravel mounds provide excellent jumping opportunities. There are flats around the perimeter of the pit.
 

The ODOT pit has ample parking space for vehicles towing trailers and camping. A kiosk keeps riders informed of regulations and closures as well as providing maps of nearby OHV trail systems. The site also serves as a staging area for access to North Millican OHV Trail System. 

The play area is designed for Class I (Quads, 3-wheelers less than 50" wide and 800 pounds) and Class III (motorcycles). Oregon Department of Transportation hauls rock out of the pit occasionally, so please ride carefully and pay attention to traffic in and out of the pit.

This area and associated facilities are operated and maintained for your enjoyment by Central Oregon Combined OHV Operations (a Forest Service, & Bureau of Land Management Cooperative agreement), Oregon Department of Parks and Recreation ATV Funds, support various user groups and many other volunteers
