In Mason County, permits can be obtained for ORVs in the townships of Sherman, Sheridan, Grant, Freesoil, Logan, Eden, Riverton, Victory, and Custer. Hamlin Township does not require an ORV permit, but you should be aware of the Hamlin Township ORV ordinance. In these townships, as well as Lake County, you can ride on the far right portion of the road that is maintained, but not on US or Michigan roads, such as US-10, M-116 and M-37. The majority of trails are found in Lake County throughout the Manistee National Forest. In the northern sections, most routes are between M-37 and North Kings Highway. In the southern part, they are between M-37 and South Kings Highway. These routes make it easy for neighbors to travel through the woods to visit one another–or for hunters to get to their camp.
