Michigan Department of Natural Resources invites riders out to enjoy the first free ORV Weekend of the Year, June 11-12.  

According to the release from the DNR, that Weekend Michigan residents and nonresidents can legally ride designated routes and trails without an ORV license or permit.

During Free ORV Weekends, all ORV rules and laws still apply.
