Another free off-road vehicle riding weekend is happening this weekend throughout the state of Michigan. According to, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources will allow Michigan residents and out-of-state visitors the chance to ride DNR-designated routes and trails for free this Saturday, August 17th and Sunday, August 18th. The free ORV weekend gives people the chance to legally ride DNR-designated routes and trails without purchasing an ORV license or trail permit.

There are over 3,700 miles of designated ORV trails located throughout the state of Michigan. You should know that a recreation passport will still be required where applicable, such as the "scramble areas" in Michigan. Those areas include the St. Helen's Motorsport Area in Roscommon County; the Black Lake Scramble Area in Cheboygan County; Silver Lake State Park in Oceana County; Bull Gap in Oscoda County and The Mounds in Genesee County. Click here to find out more about the Free ORV Weekends in Michigan.
