OFF ROAD

OFF ROAD
ATVs, ORVs, OHVs 

When you’re ready to hit the trails in your ATV, ORV, or OHV (off-highway vehicle), make St. Ignace your home base. With nearby access to some of the best trails in the Upper Peninsula, St. Ignace is perfectly positioned for off-road adventures. From Drummond Island on the east end to Curtis at the west end of Mackinac County, you’ll find hundreds of miles of state-designated trails, scramble areas, and eligible county, state forest, and national forest roads to explore. 

Michigan DNR 

The Michigan DNR holds two Free ORV Weekends every year – one in June and another one in August. Residents and out-of-state visitors can legally ride Michigan’s 4,000 miles of off-road vehicle trails and routes and the state’s six scramble areas on two back-to-back days without an ORV license or trail permit. The 2024 dates are June 8-9 and August 17-18. St. Ignace also plays host to several ORV and OHV events every year, including the Trek the Mighty Mac, September 20-22, and the Straight U.P. Jeep Creep, September 27-28. 

License and trail permit 

An ORV license and trail permit are required for drivers and their vehicles to ride eligible trails in Michigan. 

For information about where to purchase licenses and trail permits, visit the DNR website at https://www.michigan.gov/dnr/things-to-do/orv-riding. You may also get interactive ORV trail and route maps, PDF maps, and GPX files on the website above.
