SW Michigan

Some of the trails I have been riding state "no motor vehicles" . I did a Google search and see this at the DNR site. So do they really enforce this? I am totally new to all the ebike stuff and need to know where I can and cannot ride.

Allowed on linear paved trails NO
Allowed on nonmotorized, natural surface trails (such as mountain bike trails) NO
I don't agree with the linear paved trail. Here is the summary I found (emphasis added).

"Class 1 e-bikes are also allowed to ride on a linear trail that has an asphalt, crushed limestone, or similar surface. This means that Class 1 e-bikes are allowed on a typical rail-trail or similar trail facility. Local governing bodies, however, have the final say in whether an e-bike is permitted on a local trail and may regulate or prohibit the operation of a Class 1 electric bicycle on that trail.

Class 2 and Class 3 e-bikes are more restricted in their use. They are allowed on a linear trail that has an asphalt, crushed limestone, or similar surface, or a rail-trail if authorized by the local authority or agency of this state having jurisdiction over the trail. This means a local governing body must give special permission within their jurisdiction to permit Class 2 and Class 3 e-bikes on their trails.

All three classes of e-bikes are prohibited on any trail that is designated as nonmotorized and that has a natural surface tread that is made by clearing and grading the native soil with no added surfacing materials. This means that e-bikes are not allowed on mountain biking trails. However, again, local governing bodies have the power to permit e-bikes on their non-motorized natural surface trails."

I really do not understand why class 1 are ok but not class 2. I am new to ebikes, but my understanding is both class 1&2 can go 20 mph. Only difference is class 2 has a throttle. So why are they not allowed where class 1 is.
