The Michigan Department of Natural Resources has proposed some changes to off-road vehicle use on state forest roads. The public is welcome to share comments on the proposed changes through Dec. 1.

The proposed changes include:

  • Adding roads that previously were unmapped.
  • Deleting mapped roads that do not exist or no longer exist.
  • Closing roads to conventional vehicle use (including ORVs); closing roads only to ORV use, and opening roads to ORV use.

View the specific locations of proposed changes by using the interactive web map or by viewing printable maps available at Michigan.gov/ForestRoads.

Public input will be accepted via email and online until Dec. 1. Send emails to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or comment via the online map at Michigan.gov/ForestRoads. Instructions are available on the website.

Public comment also will be accepted at the January meeting of the Michigan Natural Resources Commission, where the state forest road proposals will be brought before the DNR director for information, and at the February commission meeting, when the DNR director is expected to decide. New maps showing state forest roads and whether they are open or closed to ORV use will be published by April 1, 2019.
