Listen up my ATV friends.  This weekend I was out at the Roxbury Park N Ride,  and I met two couples looking at some kind of Map Book!!!  Not sure who printed it, they said GPS I'm Not sure who but anyways. These maps are not worth the ink they printed on.  They have all Maines trails on them and when I looked at it there was Roxbury.  There was Pleasant Mt Trail to Bemus Dunham Trail,  Devil Den Trail to Andover and the Mud Trail,  Deer Yard Trail,  Dolly Mt Trail.  We have not had any of these trails for 2 to 5 years. So please,  get your maps from your local clubs don't by junk maps.  By the way,  this map company guarantee there maps 100% true for $100.00 . Don't buy these, sending you where your not allowed and piss off the landowners.

 

 August 20, 2020  

If any club members wants to do a work party please do.  There is plenty of things to do, brushing back on Horseshoe Brook Trail,  throwing rocks out of most trails,  cleaning out water bars,  Roxbury to Rumford both ways needs  signing I'm not feeling good,  so I'm taking a break form atving Thank you, Mike

 Copied and pasted from a friend :: I know a lot of people that have wheelers and are not part of a club to help out or feel that they are above the rules of the trails. Most of those at fault aren’t even on Facebook reading the warnings nor do they care. People that don’t follow rules, tear up property or just generally are assholes out there cause issues that piss off landowners. They OWN the land....not the state...not the ATV club....not the riders. The best people can do is NOT be assholes out there and get clear photos of registrations of those they see doing so. These trails are not a right....they are a privilege. Anyone that’s pissed about this can buy their own property to ride on (and then deal with said assholes themselves), join an ATV club to help out and/or spread the same word to their asshole friends that they KNOW are out there causing issues ultimately resulting in trail closures.... be a part of the solution.

Also....know that there are lots of hidden cameras and plenty of people out there ready to get enough of your info/photos to the wardens. The landowners and wardens are about out of fucking patience with this ignorance too. The entire state trail systems are at risk because of total lack of respect.
