IRONWOOD— As the yearly March 15 to May 15 seasonal road closure comes to an end, the Ottawa National Forest reminds Off Highway Vehicle (OHV) users that all OHVs are required to stay on only those roads and trails designated open for motorized use.
Use of OHVs off of designated roads and trails is prohibited.
Each year the Ottawa National Forest produces a map that identifies those road and trail segments that are open to OHVs.
The 2012 Motor Vehicle Use Map (MVUM) is the same as the 2011 map, and is available free of charge to the public and can be picked up at any Forest Service office.
“It is important for OHV users to know where they are riding and to understand the map” said Forest Supervisor Anthony Scardina.
“We want OHV users to enjoy their riding experience on the Ottawa, while at the same time ride responsibly to protect soil and water resources, control the spread of invasive species, provide for public safety, and reduce conflicts with other multiple uses. We hope you enjoy this riding season on the Ottawa.”To read the full article click the link below...http://www.ironcountyreporter.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=2722:ohv-use-on-the-ottawa-implementing-the-travel-management-rule&catid=58:hunting&Itemid=46
