Idaho is a beautiful state with some of the best dirtbike trails in the country. You can take in the beautiful scenery while riding in the freedom of the open air.
Because dirtbikes are light, small, and engineered for offroading, you can take them across a variety of landscapes. Whether you want to do jumps, tricks, or maneuver with more flexibility than a traditional motorcycle, you will find no shortage of opportunities to enjoy nature at high speed.
If you want to move across rough terrain quickly, dirtbikes are also a great option. They are built with shock-absorbing suspension, which allows for more give on rough tracks and roads. For instance, springs and hydraulic shocks are common suspensions that will allow your bike to move with the ground beneath it, rather than against it.
If you already own a bike or you’re looking to purchase one, you may be wondering where you can ride it in Idaho. If so, you’ve come to the right place.
Idaho is a dirtbike enthusiast’s dream. There are many places to ride along nature’s beautiful backdrops. The Gem State has no shortage of incredible scenery to take in as you ride.

An Off-Highway Motor Vehicle certificate (OHV) is required to ride a dirtbike in several different states, including Idaho. It’s important that riders obtain this certificate before they attempt to ride in the state.
All OHV’s being transported or driven, (whether on trails, roads, or public lands) need to display their IDPR OHV Registration Sticker.
Non-residents of Idaho must possess a valid OHV certificate from their place of residence or a valid registration sticker. It’s also necessary to purchase a restricted vehicle licence plate (if they do not already possess one).
