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.
I picked up a 2017 Polaris Sportsman 850. The previous owner rarely rode it and it only had 53 miles on it (10 hours). I believe the Polaris break in period is something like 250 miles / 50 hours or something like that at which point they suggest doing the first oil and fluid change. My question is should I do it sooner than that? I believe this was manufactured in fall of 2016 so that means the fluids in there are 3 years old. Maybe that isnt a big deal and it is still fine to wait until 50 hours, but just wanted to check

These are from our last trip at Ogemaw S&T-
Im on the quad and my buddy is on the cr125, rides it pinned cause it can barely make the jumps which resulted in him blowing it up mid day hence the picture of him holding the beer.. hah
Hope you enjoyed!
This first pic was taken Monday night, my wife is standing in about a foot of snow. It was a little deeper there from the wind, but we had a good 8-10" on the ground by Tuesday morning when the next pic was taken. The other two were taken Tuesday afternoon after I got done playing with the 500R. I got to play in the snow for a good three days straight. Rode both quads around and took my car to some empty parking lots for some snow donuts. Note the snow stuck in the wheels of the Subaru.
