  Central Maine Power is having upgrade construction and has issued the following trail CLOUSURE's.

TRAIL CLOSURE NOTICE: A power line upgrade for Central Maine Power is under way, along the utility corridor between Windsor and Orrington. Work has been taking place in Windsor, Somerville, and Washington. It will continue this year in Washington, Liberty, Appleton, Searsmont, and Morrill.

The safety of the public and contractors during this project, is a top priority. The difficult nature of this work (live lines) and presence of heavy equipment means the corridor will be closed to ATVs, motor bikes, and other off-road vehicles.  Clubs in the area have been notified and the trails will be posted.  All road crossings will be posted “construction zone”.  All users must comply with this closure. 

Thanks, Lana

IF&W Press Release 60-inch Width Reminder

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
