DETROIT – Enjoy Michigan trails on an off-road vehicle without a license or permit Aug. 17 and Aug.18.

Riders can use the state's 3,700 miles of off-road trails and five scramble areas during the free ORV weekend.

See an ORV trail map here.

All other ORV laws apply during the permit-free weekend. Riders who want to use trails in state parks and recreation areas will still need a Recreation Passport to access the sites.

The Department of Natural Resources hosts two free ORV weekends a year.
