About us

Our Mission

Founded in 1987, the Minnesota 4 Wheel Drive Association (MN4WDA) is a non-profit dedicated to creating new trail opportunities for off-road vehicles, educating the public about off-road recreation, and fighting anti-ORV legislation.

We are actively working within the MN legislature to protect current off-road attractions and simultaneously create new opportunities to go off-road. The Association contracts an independent government relations specialist to formally lobby the members of the Minnesota legislature to pass bills for positive off-road opportunities and to vote against negative ORV legislation.

We have a wide user base; from stock jeeps to slightly modified overlanding vehicles, all the way to home-build buggies and rock crawlers. We do not discriminate based on gender, age, level of experience, or vehicle make. We welcome everyone! We cater to every group and have opportunities for everyone across the state. We rely heavily on the support of our members, as we do not exist without them and we work to further the sport we all enjoy.

Over the past 35 years, we have worked hard on legislation since the beginning for 4×4 vehicles, such as the bumper height laws, fuel use taxes allocation, OHV regulations, and trail use.
