Straighten up, or the ATV Trails close.
 July 11 as reported by Fiddlehead Focus news article.

No, the trails are not closed,
But  we are trying to get a point across.

Best response would be
Slow down and enjoy the sites.
Please keep dust down!





Please Obey "NO ATVs" posted signs.

They are there at landowners request.
Local law enforcement are watching and summons will be issued.

posted 060409 mentioned at the last meeting,

...when clearing blow downs on the trail,

try to cut logs into 8 ft. There is not much

a landowner can do with 2 ft pieces.





posted 052309 First, please slow down when meeting

farm vehicles and move your

atv out of the way!

Farmers operating equipment

can't see nor hear you.

Second, Please slow down,

Third, pick up your glass bottles

- there are waste cans at each of the

VATV Riders picnic tables.

Please stay on marked trails and respect

others property. Trail use is a priviledge,

not a right! Or we could lose the trail again.



We are working on signs, dealing with landowner issues -
 *If you see a 'No Trespass' sign, please check with the
landowners. *As always, please respect the landowners,
There are some fruits fields that are being planted
along some trails - please stay on marked trails
*When any atv meets with joggers or walkers,
please slow down! 


When you come up on signs like this -

ALWAYS check with the landowner
