Land Use Rules
Indiscriminate off-road vehicle (ORV) use has damaged fragile ecosystems on both public and private lands. Complaints of erosion on hills and trails, destruction of stream banks and beds, and conflicts with other users have led to more restrictive rules to control ORV abuses.
For the future of your sport, as well as the future of the resources, you must know and closely follow the operating regulations and encourage others to do likewise. Violations of these and other rules should be reported immediately to the nearest DNR office or to the DNR Law Enforcement Division's "Complaint" hotline: 1-800-292-7800.
