Where as a “ROUTE” allows any vehicle size with a SOS license or without SOS providing it has an ORV sticker, and 4 wheel-drive may be used.

I think I just rewrote what you said…

I have been down many forest roads and found myself on “ORV Trails”, that continued to meet the forest road definition, and have generally got off them as fast as I could to avoid a possible ticket. Now with this new information, and respectfully treating them like other forest roads, its o.k..

Thanks again !

All of this makes my brain itch.
