History

TrailPass™ is an idea that was born out of a simple question asked by one ATV consumer in the fall of 2002. Chris Connelly, President of TrailPass, LLC, purchased his new utility quad to plow the driveway to his new home near Lake George, NY. After one light snow, Chris discovered what every ATV enthusiast knows; these things are way more fun in the woods than on a driveway!

Chris eagerly proceeded back to the dealership where he purchased his new toy. He went to his salesman and asked the “big question”, “Where are all the trails around here?” The salesman looked like a kid that had just been caught with his hands in the cookie jar. After a few minutes of explaining how there were not technically any “legal” places to ride and in a hushed tone said “The guys here ride some places locally, but if I tell you and you get caught it could be real trouble for us here.” Chris had heard enough, “Is that really the answer you want to give me after I just spent eight thousand dollars here?” The salesman looked him dead in the eye and said, “No, I’d like to tell you that there are loads of places and hand you a map!” It was at this very moment that TrailPass™ was officially a twinkle in someone’s eye.

Conventional wisdom pointed Chris towards working with state organizations and clubs to fight for public lands to be opened or re-opened for the sport. A month or so into the process, he asked one more seemingly easy question, “Do we really have a shot at getting these trails open?” The answer was simple and to the point – NO “But we have to keep up the fight.” Chris found, upon further investigation, that not only were trails not likely to get open, they had been trying it this way for more than a decade – and lost trails! “Following” was clearly not an option.

Four years later, TrailPass™ is the country’s first and largest privately owned and funded multi-state ATV trail network with hundred miles of trail, covering more than a dozen states and boasting thousands of riders. OHV Purchasing Group, LLC, the parent company of TrailPass, LLC has created a one-of-a-kind Commercial General Liability Insurance Policy issued through one of the most respected names in motor sports insurance that covers all TrailPass, LLC operations, all affiliated clubs, parks, as well as, landowners and municipalities that provide the land for the trails. In a time when everybody said insurance was not or could not be available for ATV recreation – TrailPass™ again chose to make it happen.

TrailPasses are sold primarily through ATV dealers, however you can also buy them online, through some local ATV clubs, and at many of the trailheads. With the purchase a single pass per machine, you can ride any of the trails in the network for 12 months.

TrailPass, LLC is made up of a modest staff and hundreds of volunteers from ATV clubs around the state. A Director of Operations, Chief Forester, Director of Clubs and Lands, and Inside Salesperson make up the team leadership. “It is quite a group, everyone gives 110% and loves to do it”, says Erin O’Neill, Chief Forester for the company.

Local ATV clubs provide the lion’s share of volunteer labor and receive funding and insurance directly from TrailPass™ for managing the trails. Trails are located on private property where the landowners have given specific permission for the club and TrailPass™ holders to ride.

There are trails to suit any riding style, from a small family oriented trails, to more challenging mountain summits. Recently several trails with more than 60 miles each have come online boasting some of the most spectacular riding in the Northeast. Many trailheads now offer camping and other amenities for our riders. Several local businesses, including hotels and restaurants, now provide discounts and other incentives to TrailPass™ holders.

TrailPass™ has trails for off road enthusiasts that are open year round. Trails that we share with the snowmobile clubs will close during the snow season. Hunting seasons or scheduled special events may also dictate when an individual riding area is open or closed.

Wow, that's an older thread...

I have met some people that have ridden in areas that require a trail pass in New York State. I think around Lake George, there is an area. For a while I thought it was just a New York thing.

    • Trying to bring one back to life

      I am trying to help my son with a machine he recently bought. A Coleman Outfitters 400 4x4 UTV.(Ihsun 400) The problem is a big one and I'm trying to work through a step at a time. It's a 2014 that had a Kodiak 400 motor and CDI box put in it for some reason but don't know year. There was a fire and someone pulled out and messed up the old wiring harness. He got a new harness for the Utv but now we have to try to figure out how to wire everything together. Any help on wiring the Kodiak to it's own CDI and or into the Utv would be Greatly appreciated. If I get a Diagram for that motors wiring then I can go to work on the harness install for the machine. I do have pictures of some of the #s on the motor, CDI box and of the harness coming from the motor.
      I know its asking for a lot to hope someone might be able and willing to help but it would be great if I could get some feed back. Now I have to see about uploading some manuals I have for older Linhai/Manco Atvs that I have.
      Thanks

    • Trying to bring one back to life 2

      Hello all. As a second major part to trying to help my son bring a 2014 Coleman Outfitters 400 UTV to life I am trying to find a schematic of the electrical system for the complete machine. Have to try to wire a Kodiak 400 engine and CDI box into a New machine wiring harness. We also have to install the Complete harness into the machine as the old one was stripped out. Have nothing against buying a service manual but really love it if/when I can find a Schematic in a PDF file so I can blow it help to better follow the wire runs.

    • Where you like to ride and what riding does for you?

      I like to ride in wooded and grassy areas. It takes my mind off the everyday routines and helps me deal with my father's cancer. Also gives me a reason to get involved with forums like this one.

      If you are looking for a used ATV for sale, where do you look? I know ebay and craigslist have used ATVs for sales and then sometimes you find local trade publications where they list used ATVs. I was looking online and decided to list out some websites that sell used ATVs. If you know of any additional websites or sources to look for or buy used ATVs, please post as a comment in this topic.
      eBay Motors  - usually has a good selection of four wheelers, ATVs, and Side by Sides and offer seller protections
      Craigslist - usually has more local ATVs, but be careful as there are no seller protections
      ATV Trader - has over 130k ATVs listed by private sellers
      ATVSoup.com - new and used ATVs for sale
      WantAdDigest - Shows local listings of ATVs for sale
      ATV.com - List new and used ATVs for sale
      When buying a used ATV, make sure you do your research and find out the book value of the ATV, look over the condition of the ATV, and as for verification of ownership. Be careful who you buy from and get the ATV checked out by a professional dealer or repair shop if you are baying a high price. 
      Watch our for VIN numbers that are scraped off, this is usually a sign that the ATV was stolen.

      I got an ATV from a guy that ran out of time rebuilding an eiger 400. He put a nerma Piston and rings in. I finished it up and it smoked like a train. I took the head off and honed the walls and it looked like the rings where on the walls, but it smokes just as much. I'm confused what's wrong with this thing.
