What you need to ride off-road trails

ORV riders on wooded trail

Explore Michigan’s vast system of nearly 3,700 miles of off-road trails and consider purchasing an ORV license or trail permit for the season.

Throughout the year, fees generated through ORV licenses and trail permits are reinvested back into the ORV system. These important dollars help fund trail expansion, maintenance and infrastructure improvements such as bridge and culvert construction and repair, as well as law enforcement and the offsetting of damage created by illegal use.

The June 9-10 weekend also lines up with Free Fishing Weekend, when all fishing license fees will be waived. In addition, the DNR is waiving the regular Recreation Passport entry fee that grants vehicle access to Michigan’s 103 state parks the same weekend.
