Ya theres some great trails around Ottis/sandisfield/tolland area. Theres a place referred to as the "green bridge" in that area on rt. 8. Thats where mostly everyone parks and theres a green bridge to cross the river and get onto the trails. Thats mainly where I do my riding because I have some land up there and I can get to all those trails from my spot.

Theres also some good trails in the October mountain area.

Tolland is kind of "off-limits." The DCR highly recommends not riding there, and if anybody gets caught on the trails that aren't part of the park (like the pipeline), the place may get closed down for good.

Pittsfield is awesome. You can ride all day and have fun there. Great variety.

Beartown is tough and tight. Lots of rocks and narrow trails. Good fun though...very technical...

Haven't been to October Mountain yet...plan to go over the summer...

green bridge off limits??? Its state riding lands. If people are worried about getting caught then why would 25+ trucks be parked there on the weekends right on the main rd.?

People are still parking there? Really? Guess the DCR doesn't check there...

Yea, theres tons of trails that go all into ottis and sandisfield. I've never heard that you can't be there. Maybe some parts of the pipeline are off limits, but other then that its all ridable.

Plus its marked with tons of signs especially snowmobile ones.

I'd stay off the pipeline. The people I talk to (the people who actually saved Tolland from being shut down this season) are really stressing that we need to stay off the pipeline to keep the other trails open.

I've never been to October Mountain, but I've heard a good deal about it from the guys on Northeastatvers.com. They nicknamed it "Rocktober" because the terrain is mostly rocky. It seems like a great place to ride to me; I'll be going there with my dad and brother once we get a new trailer (and once all my college applications are done)...hopefully before the season ends (MA state parks close to ATVs on the last weekend of November). There's supposedly miles of great trails, and I hear that at the top of the mountain there's some good mud pits.

If you go, be sure to let me know how it is. Have you been to Pittsfield, Beartown, and Tolland?

So far I have been up to Tug Hill, NY and run around on a mountain behind my Brother in laws. We are just looking for a new ride place.

    • Do You Use GPS For ATV Trails?

      Does anyone use GPS, whether on a device or app to record their ATV trail rides? I have been thinking about a section where our members can upload let's say a .gpx file and share their rides on a google map for others to see where there are riding areas. Not sure if this is something of interest or how much it would be used, so just trying to get an idea. Importing routes from files like xml, lmx, tour, freshroute, gpx, kmz, kml

    • Michigan atv trails St Helen to Mio, and everwhere in between!

      Good place to start out is at St Helen Mi. campground or Trails inn motel, both on the trail head across the street from one another, with all the amenities needed in town there for your stay like an atv parts dealership, gas. restaurants, liquor store, drug store, hardware all within a blocks distance away. From here you can head E. towards Houghton lake Mi. trail system or West to West branch or N. through Clear lake then onto city of Mio trail system. So many great places to check out along the way heading north fro there, like Clear Lake, with their Bar and grill, corner store, gas, lodging, Ambrose lk. atv campground near by, and with so many surrounding trails there too, with hill climbs! Then after leaving Clear lk. head up to wagon Wheel N. of Rose city rd. with dozens of trails scattering the hill side there called the Rose city oil fields. Then on up N. to the gravel pit for a little play time, before crossing M33 at the Pink store for gas and snacks. Leaving there to head up to Mio's Bull gap, either on the west side (shortest rout) or you can do the half Bull Gap trip through Mac lk. Campground heading  N. to Bull Gap or the long way around from the Pink store traveling on the 50 mile loop that passes Bull gap on its way back to the Pink store. Make sure you take along the printable Mi. DNR atv trail maps with you, to help guide the way, along with the other areas I just mentioned, maps.  If your looking for a friend to ride with and show the way with , over 50 nearer my age and interests, contact Email:  [email protected]   for more info. I'll be more than happy to ride with you!   Thanks Steve

    • Generate map of private ATV trails

      Is there a 'best in class' tool/app method to map private ATV trails? We're lucky to have some space to ride and have created many trails but can't figure out the best/most efficient method to generate a map? I've tried GIA GPS for iOS with some success, however the stop/start when trails cross over each other makes it tricky/difficult to get an accurate 'total mileage' vs. duplicate overlap.
