x2 DNR up here LOVE LOVE LOVE to give tickets for this. Ones around here tho are mostly "snowmobile trails" only even tho I see ATV's and such riding down them. I dont agree with this, they should open the trails up for ORV use during the summer months IMO, technically I believe only power line/well pump checkers/ logging operations can travel down those but I could be way off, all I know is they are not for public use..

Snowmobile trails should never allow ORV's on them, unless they are part of a ORV route. Many snowmobile trails run through private property and are leased from funds from the MSA. I know if I was a land owner I wouldn't want truck/jeeps/rednecks/quads/3-wheelers on my property tearing everything to shit. I like offroading, but offroaders are some of the most disrespectful groups to the environment out there

Yeah thats what I ment they dont allow them but I see it constantly, and more this year than any other that I can remember but then again there is not "ORV routes" here in ostego county but in surrounding counties yes. I can also agree with the private land owners not opening the trails on their property for orv use, I wouldnt want that eather. Most of this property should be owned by the power company or state and logging companys I believe do most of the distruction of this land with taking down trees to trenching out the trails. The only point I was trying to make was all the miles of "seasonal roads" or unmarked 2 tracks that are directly connected to a seasonal road(not personal private property) its really easy to end up where you arnt suppose to be (powerline runs) and end up with a ticket if your not careful.

Are those the lines over off of Brown Fire Lane?

If so there is a section that IS legal on the west side.

It's listed as a Primitive Road. A few (2 or 3) years back I even took a DNR officer over there to be sure.

Was told it has to be cause of all the land access off the sides of it.
