Warren— All Terrain Vehicle (ATV) and Off-Highway Motorcycle (OHM) 2023 annual and daily permits are available for in-person purchase at our Marienvill­e and Bradford Ranger District Offices and our Supervisor's Office located in North Warren. Permits are also available from some local businesses and through the U.S. Mail.

The Allegheny National Forest would like to thank our returning vendors and welcome our new vendors. Our returning vendors include the Forest Lodge and Campground in

Marienvill­e, Route 66 Sporting Goods in Shippenvil­le, and Leisure Time Powersport­s in both Bradford and Corry. Our new vendors this year include DJ's Russell City Store in Russell City and Myers Motorsport­s near Kane. Marienvill­e District Ranger Rob Fallon stated, “We are grateful for the vendors who are willing to provide this public service at their businesses. With their help, we are able to expand the hours and locations available to riders seeking to get their daily or annual permits.”

Riding the


OHM trails on the Allegheny National Forest requires a permit. Daily and annual permits are available for ATVs and OHMs. Daily permits are valid for the day they are stamped, and annual permits are valid through the end of the calendar year for those periods when the trails are open. The 2023 ATV/OHM permit prices, mail-in forms, vendor informatio­n, and directions for electronic and mail submission­s are on the Forest website on the recreation passes and permits page. ATV permits, unlike OHM permits, require proof of valid insurance and state registrati­on.

Forest ATV/OHM trails are scheduled to open on Memorial Day weekend and close the last weekend in September subject to trail conditions. If winter weather allows, we occasional­ly open the trails for winter ATV/ OHM riding. Winter use of the ATV/OHM trail system requires sustained cold temperatur­es that freeze the trail surface and push frost into the ground. We will update informatio­n on our website and social media channels when ATV/OHM trails open or close. Please check trail conditions online or by calling one of our offices before heading out to ride the trails.

Riders should practice outdoor ethics such as Leave No Trace principles and Tread Lightly so that everyone can continue to enjoy the trails for generation­s to come. Riders may encounter vehicles, bikers, hikers, or others at any time on these multiple-use trails. Use the Interactiv­e Visitor Map to help plan your adventure.

Please note that public ATV use on the Allegheny National Forest is restricted to the designated ATV/

OHM trails and is not allowed anywhere else on the national forest. Motorcycle­s that are licensed for use on public roads are allowed on the open public roads of the Allegheny National Forest, all other 0ff-highway motorcycle­s are restricted to the designated ATV/OHM trails and are not allowed to operate anywhere else on the national forest.
