Within Michigan's designated trail system, 24 percent are
designated and maintained for motorcycle use only, 50 percent
are designated for motorcycles and all-terrain vehicles (ATVs)
and 24 percent are designated as ORV routes -- open to ORVs
of all sizes, including trucks, motorcycles and ATVs.
What I want to know is where ORV route was added? Based on their current figures we have gained 7% more ORV route someplace. At last calculation we only had 17% of the trail system - and that matched the DNR's calculation.

I know some of it is a new route in Indian River, it's on a 26 mile stretch of snowmobile trail, needless to say it's flat! We (GLFWDA) were supposed to be doing the maintenence on it, not sure if we still are or not. Not sure about any more, PM phitte here or on GLFWDA.ORG he would know more.

Indian River is new miles as of a year ago. DNR added it to our grant last year, but after several discussions we delayed the project to 2009. It will need quite a bit of work this year to get the initial signing done and make sure it meets the 72"x96" standard required by DNR.
