Special Notes regarding routing:

Black and White (B/W) version of map is _not_ routable.
Routing parameters will not stay only on ORV-legal roads and trails, but is designed to prefer them.
Routing is designed to give most preference to green, then blue and least preference to black, red & orange.
Routing does not understand expressway on/off ramps nor one-way roads; may route to/from expressway at a point that does not have a ramp or against designated traffic flow - DO NOT FOLLOW GPS ADVICE!. Correcting this behavior is on the to-do list.
"Outlaw" and closed HM Trails do not route. See our Routing FAQ.
