Knowing the ATV/UTV rules here is crucial
In the state of Ohio, the rules and regulations of where you can ride your ATV or UTV are foggy at best. Many towns and cities make their own judgements that may differ from what the state itself deems appropriate, which adds to the confusion. All of this means that UTVs are not permitted on many state-operated trails.
However, all is not lost in Ohio. We were able to find some private ride locations in the state that are open to both ATVs and UTVs. Just be sure to take a family member or friend along to enjoy the experience with you.
Located in the East Sparta area of Ohio, Bear Creek Amphitheatre offers some weekend off-roading. Utilizing over 26 miles of trail, the wooded hills of Northeastern Ohio provide riders of all ages a great off-road riding experience. Located right on a KOA campground, this rider’s paradise in Ohio provides RV and primitive camping opportunities. The trails are a combination of hard pack, loamy soil, rocks, steep hills and some water crossings.
Situated on Wayne Township Road in Bloomingdale, Ohio, Renegade Ridge is another private riding location fit for both ATVs and UTVs. Riding the almost 1500-acre property gives you almost 27 miles of wide trail adventure with some challenging hill climbs to test your skills.
