Forest service clarifies ORV laws


A law recently signed by Governor Rick Snyder states that ORVs may be used for game retrieval on “public land on which hunting is permitted” and that ORVs may operate on all “Forest Roads” unless closed by DNR. However, the Forest Service would like to remind the public that Cross-country use of ORVs is banned on the Huron-Manistee National Forests and ORVs may be driven only on designated trails and areas on the Huron-Manistee. ORVs may be driven on Forest Service Roads only when that road is part of a designated motorized trail. Motor Vehicle Use Maps that show where it is legal to operate all motorized wheeled vehicles can be found here. You can contact the Huron-Manistee National forest office at online at or call  1-231-775-2421
