Ottawa Announces Decision on OHV Access Routes

Ironwood, MI. – The Ottawa National Forest has recently published a Decision to provide additional recreational off-highway vehicle (OHV) opportunities.

As part of our continued efforts to provide for a high‐quality, sustainable OHV trail system, the Ottawa has designated additional OHV access to provide north-south connections between the State of Michigan Multi‐Use trails (e.g. Bergland to Sidnaw, Marenisco to Iron River, and Bill Nicholls Trail) and the communities of Watersmeet, Iron River, Sidnaw, andRousseau on the eastern side of the Forest. Trail connections will be accomplished largely via the use of current Forest System roads on National Forest System (NFS) lands. Additional information on the connections, including maps, is available on‐line at: http://www.fs.usda.gov/projects/ottawa/landmanagement/projects.

The Decision is subject to appeal by those who have previously commented on the project and upon resolution of any appeals received, the new routes will be displayed on the Ottawa Motor Vehicle Use Map (MVUM). Some improvements to the roads are required prior to opening the route to OHV use, therefore, it is anticipated that the routes will be open in the late summer of 2013. For more information or to receive copies of project documents contact Susanne Adams at the Ontonagon Ranger District, smadams@fs.fed.us, or 906-884-2411 x14; or Christine Handler at 906-884-2411 x 12 or cahandler@fs.fed.us.
