Use this map. Click on each county and it shows the ORV routes.

Are you saying that ORV's such as dirtbikes/quads/side x sides are not allowed on any unmarked 2 track/forest roads?

I know I've seen some 2 tracks that were marked No ORV, but SOS vehicles were allowed, so we could ride our SOS plated dual sports.

Correct. Unless they are plated. So a street legal bike or sxs would be ok.

That's so weird that up here (Gladwin Co.) they would be allowed on a county road, but a road not traversed very often in the middle of the woods would be off limits to them.

ORV Stickers are required when less than 3 flags are on a Jeep. If you have 3+ flags the rules really dont apply to you anymore.
Happy Wheeling.

In the lower peninsula that is correct. In the UP, forest roads on State land are open to ORVs.

County roads, probably open, forest roads, not. In Gladwin the Center FireLane, Lame Duck, East Center Firelane are all county roads. The two tracks leading off of those are forest roads and not open to ORVs.

As a kid riding out there in the 80s I recall the DNR giving us grief for riding on the "road" but it was OK to be off in the woods (it was all open back then). Funny how the opposite is true now.
