Users can quickly filter down to find color-coded trails that fit their use case in the area they want to explore. The Forest Service website breaks down side-by-side use into OHVs greater than 50 inches and OHVs less than 50 inches to quickly let you plan the best routes on your next adventure. It doesn’t stop there. Users can also stack different information layers on top of a variety of different types of maps. For example, you can place recent Twitter posts on top of satellite imagery, current weather warnings on top of US topographic maps, or any combination thereof. That means you’re guaranteed to have the most up-to-date information available before you go.” ~ UTV Driver
