Whissenhunt OHV Area:
Please check the forest website for the most recent closures and openings. https://www.fs.usda.gov/recmain/conf/recreation
If purchasing your Day Pass on-site, no printed copy of the pass will be available. Instead, your license plate number and pass stored on your device will be used to confirm compliance. If you purchase an Annual Pass you can print the pass and display in your tow vehicle.
A pass is required per OHV operator and covers the use of the OHV on the specified trails. You must enter the names for each rider and a license plate for each tow vehicle that will be at the trailhead. Passes can be downloaded to each rider’s phones, and/or printed ahead of time and carried on the trail. You can enter separate emails for each rider, or the purchaser can forward to an email or text the pass to each rider.
This pass is valid until 11:59 PM of the date listed on the pass, and only for the date and vehicle specified for this pass. If you no longer have the vehicle associated with the Annual Pass, you need to come into an office and get a physical pass.
