Recreational Trails Program

The Recreational Trails Program (RTP) is a Federal Highway Administration program. RTP funds come from the Federal Highway Trust Fund and are available to States to develop and maintain recreational trails and trail-related facilities for both non-motorized and motorized recreational trail uses. Each State administers its own program. You can contact your state RTP Administrator to find out what trail projects are being funded in your state and how to apply for project funding.

United States Forest Service

Many National Forests provide excellent OHV riding opportunities. For this reason, we have provided a list of U.S. Forest Service employees in charge of trails or resource management in each National Forest in your state. It's a good idea to familiarize yourself with these individuals, as they can be a great resource for information. It is especially important right now, since the Forest Service is in the process of implementing its November 2005 Travel Management Rule which requires each National Forest to designate those roads, trails, and areas that are open to motor vehicle use. Once this designation process is complete and a Motor Vehicle Use Map is published, no OHV use will be allowed off of designated routes. Therefore it is extremely important for the public to be engaged in this process.
