TRAIL INFORMATION : Trails are maintained up to 60 inches wide
Trails are usually scheduled to open each year, throughout the State, by May 15th. However, the weather, mud conditions of the trails, landowners, and local clubs make the deciding factor for this date to be either earlier or later. Please obey posted trail signs.
To further simplify the width restriction regarding ATV trails which numerous people are misunderstanding:
(1) Trail Width Restriction is NOT new.
(2) Trail Width Restriction was NOT created by ATV Maine.
(3) Trail Width Restriction is NOT a law.
(4) Trail Width Restriction is NOT statewide.
(5) Landowners have requested that the EXISTING width restriction be enforced to gain control over what has been overlooked for MANY years.
(6) ATV clubs are being contacted by the landowner(s) that this enforcement will affect.
(7) ATV Maine has only shared this information to help educate those who will soon be on the trails! - This was NOT created by ATV Maine.
(8) 60-inch trail is 60 inches

LATEST UPDATE ON THE FOLLOWING TRAIL LOCATIONS
Please check out our Facebook page for clubs who have provided trail information - https://www.facebook.com/ATVMaine
Brettuns Wheelers ATV Club ~ Livermore Trails Closed October 1
Livermore trails are closed Oct 1 due to landowner requests during hunting seasons, beginning with archery hunting season which, according to Maine IF&W began September 28 and ends Oct. 27. After that, regular firearms hunting season follows and then black powder. Please respect the landowner and follow their wishes. There would be no trails in Livermore without the generous use of private lands.
I was just informed by a landowner in Frenchville that the trail that crosses their land will be closed. The trail will be blocked with trees according to the landowner. The trail is one that connects Airport Ave. to Starbarn Ave. Please seek an alternate trail until a solution to the problem is found. As a club, we will try to come up with trail options as soon as possible. Thanks for your cooperation.
Bob Marquis - President, Frenchville ATV Club
