(Minnesota) — The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has initiated a statewide master planning project for off-highway motorcycle (OHM) trails.

Members of the public are encouraged to provide comments regarding the desired types and locations of additional trails, any concerns about OHM trails and related issues. Both OHM riders and nonriders are encouraged to share their insights.

Local governments are also encouraged to provide input on potential opportunities or challenges related to OHM recreation in their area. 

Public and local government input opportunities are open now through February 15th.

Comments will be considered by the DNR in drafting a master plan for OHM trails in Minnesota. The master plan will detail current use and trends of OHM riders in the state; describe the feedback received from Minnesotans; analyze, and explore, potential opportunities for expanded trails, identify any concerns needing attention, and identify strategies to guide the departments management of OHM recreation.
