Does anyboy know anything about the trails in Kingston? If so, is it legal to ride there.

I heard there is lots of riding there, but I don't know if it's legal or not>

I travel 3 hrs. to NJ and 3hrs. to PA every 2 to 3 weeks to ride. Kingston is nothing, I can make it there in 2 hrs. flat, I just want to know if it's leagal to ride there so I don't waste a trip driving up there.

I would give a call to a local dealer up there and see if someone there knows where everyone is riding. Try these guys:

On the Trail Cycle

83 1/2 Ten Broeck Avenue,

Kingston, NY 12401

(845) 338-7822

That's already Ulster County, I'm not sure on the rules for atvs up there. I know they have had atv races in the past at the Ulster County Fair.

Unfortunately it is like a lot of NY. There are tons of trails, but none of it is legal. Unless you are up in Tug Hill, or in a private park you run the risk of running into your local constabularies.

I am just a bit south of Kingston and would not be surprised at all that there is lots of good riding. But you would need a local to point you in the safest directions.

I'll agree with potown.....NY is basically "riding dirty".

You could check out trailpass.com , but hearsay states it's not worth the $$$.

ATV New York is pretty much defunct, and that leaves Tug Hill.

Good news is that things are looking good for OHV in that area of the state.

Technically, if you have permission from the land owner, you are allowed to ride;

if not, you're dirty and subject to the constabularies ;)

There are clubs in the state that ride hunting club land; trick is finding them ;)

Blab mode off....

The only issue with Mass is you need to register separately in Mass to be legal. They do not recognize NY Reg.

      I just watched this video I made ten years ago.  It made me laugh.  I was riding a 1985 Honda ATC 200X.  It's hard to film yourself so I had to position the camera to film me.  May flies out th wazoo, but I HAD to ride.  I hope you get a laugh.

      This week, the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) plans to outline proposed policy changes for ATV trails on state forest lands.  They will also be seeking public comment.
      Pennsylvania has more than 260 miles of ATV trails in state forests. The department is reviewing its policy to respond to increasing demands for riding opportunities and well as interest from local governments in expanding tourism.
      “The purpose of the policy is to provide guidance to DCNR when acquiring, developing and managing lands for ATV use by the public,” Secretary Cindy Adams Dunn said.
      There had been a moratorium on new trail development, but the policy revisions now authorize DCNR to consider new ATV trails and connectors on state forest lands.
      “New ATV trails will be considered, while still balancing the protection of natural resources as outlined in the Environmental Rights Amendment to the Pennsylvania Constitution, and the needs of all types of recreational users on DCNR lands,” Dunn said.
      In a 2016 survey of ATV users, more than 4,800 responded with many indicating a strong desire for more long-distance trails. Pennsylvania has around 285,000 registered ATVs. On state forest lands, ATV riding is allowed only on designated trails.
      Public comment will be taken at a meeting in Harrisburg Wednesday, January 22, from 10 a.m. to noon in Room 105 of the Rachel Carson State Office Building. Written comments can be submitted to [email protected]
      The deadline to submit comments is March 27.
      More information about ATV riding is on the DCNR website.
