You further understand that:
The OHV route data available through OwlsheadGPS was obtained from public land management agencies or their partners.  The role of the OwlsheadGPS Project is to convert this data into useable formats and offer it to OHV users via the internet.  Any imperfections in the original agency data will likely also exist in the OwlsheadGPS Project.

Many of the OHV routes in the OwlsheadGPS Project cross private as well as public lands.  Agencies may have OHV route data for some private lands but only the segments that cross public land are actually designated by agencies for OHV use. For the your convenience, the OwlsheadGPS Project consolidates route segments into contiguous route data.  Always obey signs posted by private property owners regarding access.

Many of the routes within the OwlsheadGPS Project have not been field checked for accuracy.  Some route data comes from as long ago as 1985, before the use of GPS technology by land managers.  Much of the route data was collected in 2001 and 2002, and some has been collected and corrected since.  Regardless, the user is responsible for staying on the legal OHV trail.

Never rely on GPS devices or data alone.  Always carry and consult printed maps and navigation tools such as a compass.

Navigating the back country in an OHV is an activity with significant risks.  Many OHV routes lead to remote and hard-to-find places that are far from help or services.  It is always best to travel with more than one vehicle in your party.  Always take your cell phone and your identification, including emergency contact information.  Dangers can include, but are not limited to: harmful insect and snake bites; vehicle mishaps such as tip-overs, roll-overs, impacts, and breakdowns; mine shafts and prospect holes; road collapse; slips and falls; weather conditions including extreme heat, extreme cold, strong winds and blowing sand, sudden intense and violent rain storms, and lightning strikes; lack of water and food; steep cliffs and unstable and slippery surfaces; contact with spiny and thorny plants; and disorientation and lack of knowledge as to one's location.  You accept entirely these risks when using software or data from the OwlsheadGPS Project.
