Lansing — Off-road vehicle riders in Michigan will be able to use state-designated routes and trails without a license or trail permit on two weekends this summer.

The Free ORV Weekends are scheduled for June 11-12 and Aug. 20-21.

The Department of Natural Resources says the June dates offer the best vacation value. In addition to fees being waived for ORV trail licenses and permits, the year’s second Free Fishing Weekend will take place. And the Recreation Passport will not be required at any state park or recreation area that weekend.

Michigan has more than 3,800 miles of designated ORV trails.
