ATV's

Hey, I am looking for a place to ride ATV's

Not looking to destroy someones property, I do not have a loud ATV with some kind of aftermarket exhaust.

It would be just me and my father, 2 very quiet, stock machines.

We just lost our spot due to....well you can probably guess, building development.

I know places to go are getting RARE, I am not looking for any really illegal property where we would have to worry about getting bothered by the police.

If you or someone you know might have something somewhere, maybe we can work something out, with liability wavers and sure wouldn't mind paying.

Thanks!

There really arent any places in CT to ride quads anymore. well atleast legal places. If they are sport ATV's you have then there are a few places that have an open practice every once and a while in CT. Rocky Hill (ctrivermotocross) has a track and they allow quads to ride there on most mondays, and every once and while Central Village has an open practice for quads.

There are no legal trails that i know of, and unfortunately i dont know anyone with land that they are willing to have people ride on.

I ride at a place in north haven, but its a really rough track thats all sand and the cops dont like us in there, considering one of the cops even took a dodge charger up in there and tried to chase us. Plus, if they do catch you and get you to stop, they impound your quad or dirtbike for a VERY long time..

Unfortunately the only places you can rally ride quads now is out of state. Thats why alot of the CT guys i race with are switching to dirtbikes..simply because there is an abundance of places to ride in the state.

like my brother said, legal trails in CT do not exist. you can pay to ride if you have a race machine on an MX track but thats it.

what kind of machines are you running?

Yeah I'd be surprised if he didn't damage something on his car doing that.

This is why the smelly cat has been to West Virgina and Maine. The only riding in CT is my yard.

We are planning on Cow Hampshire next year. We want something close for a quick ride. Undecided on Vermont. West Virginia is in the plan again. This place is great. Worth the trip. Gone three years and still havn't ridden all the trails.
