The Superior OHV Trail System is shared with mountain bikers and dirt bike riders, so keep an eye out and slow down when passing. These trails can be crowded on the weekends. At the trailhead, there is dispersed primative camping permitted.

Note: In the Wayne National Forest, all ATV’s must display an Ohio APV tag and a Wayne National Forest ATV permit. ATV riding on the forest service roads is prohibited and aggressively enforced. All ATV riders must use a helmet and goggles. The trails are closed from mid-December through mid-April. The routes are designed only for ATV’s under 50 inches wide, so do not attempt to ride side-by-side UTV’s on these trails. Night riding is permitted on the Superior OHV Trail System providing that the ATV has working lights.
