    Are all these truly OHM trails? The DNR and Vilas County websites only shows 14 miles of legal OHM trails.

    You must not be very familiar with GPS guided rides. This article might give you a better understanding of what is being offered here: Planning / Scouting, Mapping, and Sharing GPS Guided Rides - Adventure Rider (advrider.com)

    The Tamaracks is an OHM trail.

    The GPS guided rides being offered here are dual sport and adventure motorcycle routes (paths) that use a combination of highways, forest roads, and some trail segments. GPS guided DS/ADV rides are very popular with some of the original tracks that were re-homed here being downloaded well over 10,000 times.

    Here is a catalog of some additional GPS guided rides. GPS Files Archives - Cannonshot.net

    @Cannonshot - so other than the Tamaracks area proper, is there a legal need for an OHM sticker in Vilas county? I thought some of these routes shared trails with Landover ATV Club but apparently not as I just got off the phone with them and 2 wheels aren't allowed. Maybe I am getting confused with the BW200 ADV route sharing UTV/ATV trails. Thanks. (I rode Tamaracks last week with Tim S. and had a blast. Nice Place.)

    So for now an ohm sticker is just needed in Vilas county for tamaracks correct? More to the point, do any of your tracks "require" an ohm sticker in Wisconsin or the UP?

    Yes, some of my tracks require a MI sticker in MI and some require a WI sticker in WI. I have thousands of miles of tracks posted so I can recite from memory all that do. The best thing to do generally is to buy stickers from the states you ride in. They support the programs and eliminate any worries. A sticker is required in Vilas to the Tamaracks but not for the dual sport tracks I have in that county.
