Re: Maine UTV Riders, 60" max being enforced
This is true... but it is an old law. It appears an incident occurred on one of the corporate lands which prompted them to call on law enforcement to begin enforcing the laws more strictly. It is unfortunate and many are upset that our largest statewide group appears to be rolling over/ supporting the move. (ATV Maine)
However, this by no means includes all trails! In fact, it doesn't include all that many right now.
Some clubs are beginning to use Polaris RideCommand to map and post their trails online. These maps include the ability to show which trails are effected by width restrictions. Only a few clubs in Central Maine have started this move so far... But as more do, so will the size of the map! And no more contacting 10 clubs for maps just to ride for one day, they will all be in one place.
I would encourage you to ask clubs if they are using RideCommand to publish maps and trail info when you contact them for maps. Some clubs just haven't heard about it yet...
The clubs in Central Maine that are using it are;
Central Maine Trail Blazers (Corinna)
They are just starting out on the process so give them a couple weeks to get things rolling but they will have the first regional, and ACCURATE, gps maps in Maine.
*Yes, others sell gps trail maps and files, but they are almost always outdated and contain errors!
