ORV enthusiasts will now be able to ride deeper into Michigan's forest lands.


Governor Rick Snyder recently signed legislation that expands the use of trails by off-road vehicles on forest roads in the Lower Peninsula and calls for trails across the state to be mapped.


The Department of Natural Resources is to complete the mapping of trails in the northernmost regions of the Lower Peninsula by the end of 2017 with the remaining regions to be mapped by the end of 2018.


Snyder says the legislation will help market Michigan as a premier destination for outdoor recreation.
