6. In the northern Lower Peninsula, the Michigan Cross Country Cycle Trail (MCCCT) connects a series of ORV loop trails. The loops are open to DNR licensed ORVs, whether they are street legal (Secretary of State licensed) or not. However, in its current state, the MCCCT connectors between the loops often use county roads or state highways only open to street legal vehicles. In a few locations, county road commissions have designated specific county road rights of way for use by DNR licensed ORVs that are not street legal to connect loops. In other areas, the DNR has sought to acquire corridors for state ownership to connect trail loops and to facilitate other trail activities such as snowmobiling. Please rate your support or opposition concerning each of the following options by checking (v) your choice and explaining your rating.
