it dont matter how you say it , its great entertainment. Although Maine is noted
for many outdoor recreational activities, among the most popular are boating, snowmobiling and riding of ATVs. With
2,500 lakes and ponds, and thousands of miles of maintained snowmobile and ATV trails, it's easy to see why these sports have
become so popular!
live on a farm in central Maine (100 acres) , my camp renters are welcome to ride on my land , field and woods trails . Starting
as close as 3/4 mile away there are hundreds and hundreds of miles of woods roads to roam. Check out my
location on the "Maps and Directions page"
At certain times during the year, parts of it may be closed
to 4 wheelers due to the logging industry ( it's their roads) and a concern for your safety but there is always a lot of room
! Our ATV industry depends on indivual land owners allowing riders and not doing property damage , in some places riding
trails may be closed untill our mud season is over , (usually about May 15 th)
My own 4 wheeler, I keep a canoe rack right on
it , and load my gear and canoe, drive it onto my pick-up and am off to some of our remote ponds for a day of wandering
and fishing !
I do encourage responsable and safe riding
practices. You can have a great time in this and surrounding areas with out getting hurt., just a
short distance from here opens you up to hundreds and hundreds of miles of logging roads.
