Free ORV Weekend is Aug. 17-18

LANSING — Michigan residents and out-of-state visitors looking for an off-road adventure can explore the state’s 3,700 miles of off-road trails and five scramble areas during Free ORV Weekend Aug. 17-18.

“This is the perfect opportunity to see and experience Michigan’s off-road trails,” said Ron Olson, chief of the DNR Parks and Recreation Division.

All ORV rules and laws still apply, but riders on designated routes and trails do not need an ORV license or trail permit during these two days. A Recreation Passport still is required where applicable, such as the scramble areas. This is the last Free ORV Weekend this year.
