The $20 permit will be required beginning Jan. 1 for most off-road cyclists on state properties, with some exceptions.
Permits are not required for trails rated as “Beginner.” Also, trail volunteers who contribute at least 125 recorded hours of service in a year can receive a permit for free.
A daily off-road cycling permit will also be available for $5.
Permits may be purchased at all state park and forest property offices and gatehouses during regular business hours. They are also available online at Mother Nature’s Mercantile.
