Off-highway motorcycle trails

This listing describes more than 750 miles of trails available for off-highway motorcycle (OHM) riding. Below is a brief explanation of the trail and the trail manager contact.

There can be some confusion as to what portions of a trail may be open to motorcycles. Some trails are open to street-licensed OHMs but not OHMs that cannot be registered by the Department of Transportation for use on public roads. These OHMs are called "limited use off-highway motorcycles" and are commonly referred to as dirt bikes.

For the most current information on trail conditions, maps and the local trail or area opening/closing dates, please contact the trail manager indicated.
