Places to Ride & Motorized Recreation Maps

I recently received an email inquiring about places ride OHVs in Montana. The person was new to the state and here for a limited amount of time. Here’s the suggestion I gave, that I’ll share with you also.

First, I suggest going to the Montana Recreation Maps website, to get a high-level overview of many (but not all) of the established Motorized Recreation Areas.

During 2018 Seth McArthur with Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP) brought this website online to provide a single place to share statewide snowmobile and ohv digital maps with the motorized recreation community.

Second, I suggest setting up an account and downloading the Avenza Maps application to your smartphone and/or tablet.  Then, you can search / filter Avenza for MVUM or off-roading type maps to download to your smartphone or tablet and take these on the trail with you.

I hope this is helpful to those of you seeking out a place to go ride the trails. Ride Safely and Responsibly.

New MTVRA Website

Hello, Welcome to the new MTVRA website. This is my first experience in building a website and I’ll openly admit that I’m not very good at it.  I’ll appologize right now for the lack of polish and professionalism in what you see here.  MTVRA used to have a website a few years ago but as an all volunteer organization some things fell through the cracks resulting in the website disappearing.  MTVRA was able to restore the domain, but lost all the content that was on the original website.  Please have patience as I ramble my way along the trail of adding content to the website.  I’ve got a lot to learn here…
