ORV Trail, Route and Area System Initial Inventory Criteria The 1979 ORV Plan reported that the state forest system was being inventoried for potential ORV opportunity by modifying the State Forest Operations Inventory (OI) to include a more detailed inventory of roads and trails. Prior to this time, OI had primarily focused on timber, wildlife and general forest recreation. Ten percent of the state forest was and still is annually inventoried.
Initial Identification and Evaluation Criteria State forest areas, roads and trails were initially identified and their suitability for ORV use assessed based on the following criteria as reported in the 1979 ORV plan:
Unsuitable for any ORV activity: (e.g. closed to all ORV use)
(a) Dedicated wilderness, quiet or natural areas
