Over 50 inches wide

I have been riding ATV's for several years and have been to about all the major trail systems in Kentucky, Tennessee, W. Va. and Michigan. We have been able to ride where ever we wanted to, for the most part. I recently sold my Grizzly 700 and bought a 2006 Rhino 660. I love it and am preparing for my first ride in Michigan. (I'm from Indiana and we don't have many places to ride in my state.) I noticed after looking over the Michigan trail maps that most of them are for machines less than 50 inches wide. We are looking at riding around the St. Helens and Rose City area and I don't want to trailer all the way up there and find out that there are very few trails that we can use. Can any of you Michigan riders out there enlighten me on this? I already found out that I can't ride anywhere in Ohio. I'm hoping that I didn't make a mistake selling my Grizzly.

Dave1: I called the DNR in Ohio and they told me that the only side by side allowed in Ohio is the Razor. They said if they catch me in a Rhino on their trails, I will be ticketed. I called 3 departments of the Ohio DNR, Forestry, Law Enforcement, etc. and they all told me the same thing.

If you have an android phone, you need Moto2go (riderplanet site)....a necessity for both the phone and computer IMO.

When you click on a certain riding area in a state, directly above the contact info there is a "details" button....click on that.

The only thing I know about Ohio is what the Ohio DNR told me. Maybe Rhino's are allowed to ride on privately owned land, I don't know. I inquired about the Wayne National Forest area, Hocking Hills, etc. and was told I could not ride there because my Rhino is over 50 inches wide. Based on that information, they are leading me to believe that this is an Ohio State Law. That is the only ATV trails I am familiar with in that state. I know that I certainly would never load up and haul 200 to 300 miles just to discover I could not ride there. I will spend my money in other states.

These are the only 2 places in ohio that are 50in only!!! There are many other places to ride in Ohio that do not follow this rule! It is bs but those 2 places are not that good to ride anyways... We for sure arent the best state to ride in but we do have a LOT more to offer than the 2 places mentioned..

Just happy to be riding again

In MI the Tin Cup and Little Manistee trails are nice decent sized orv trails, just outside of Baldwin.

Many other trails are designed for atvs and they have adapted them for orvs by incorporating county roads and atv trails.

The issue with this is that there are way more atv trails and they are typically much longer loops. The orv routes are rarely loops and much shorter in distance.

I have not been ticketed yet but the atv trails are for vehicles 50" or less. DNR is heavy where I ride so I do not go on atv trails much.

Little Man has a nice state park camping area and is a long orv loop. It also has a gas station connected to it. It is also minutes away from the smaller Tin Cup which is way more woodsy but also a complete loop.

Both are worth the trip.

Silver Lake Dunes is cool too but you better bring lots of power for the dunes and shocks for trails. A stock rhino will not make it up the dunes, with my mods I had no problems but I don't know if anything less than a cam mod would do, it depends on sand.

There are many monster sand machines and zillions of people.

Long story longer, a 50" rig will get you on much longer trails and more of them.

Finally, Little Man and Tin Cup are the southernmost orv trails in MI. I am heading up there on Fri.
