    Designated trails are two-way single track paths or ways capable of travel by a vehicle 50” in width or less. May be maintained to motorcycle trail specifications which are 24” at ground level, 40” at handlebar height, brushed 8’above ground level or to ATV trail specifications which are 50” at ground and handlebar height and brushed 8’ above the ground.

    Designated routes are two-way forest roads having a minimum width of 72”.

    In addition, it was noted that the Michigan Cross Country Cycle Trail was 739 miles, but that much of it was composed of forest and county roads that require road (Secretary of State) licensing. It was also noted that the majority of the trail system off county and forest roads was maintained to motorcycle specifications.
