Loud snowmobiles and OHRVs are a primary cause of complaints from landowners and other trail users. Vehicles powered by "two stroke" engines are the biggest offenders. All operators are encouraged to ride quiet vehicles. It is illegal to modify an exhaust system in any way that increases the noise level.
