What is an "OHV Route" vs "Road" vs "Trail"?

An OHV Route is either a dirt road or trail that has been designated as legal and appropriate for off-highway use by motorized vehicles.

A road is generally wide enough for a full-size vehicle or larger, and serves as a primary route in the network.
A trail is usually only one vehicle width wide, slower to travel, and provide secondary access to dispersed campsites and other recreational destinations.

For the purposes of the Owlshead GPS Project, however, we simply refer to all roads and trails as “OHV Routes.”
