Sometimes they get "thrown up" (declassified or delisted) but most often I think people gate them or post them cuz no one puts up a fuss... A law makes no difference without enforcement....
There are many unmaintained historical roads that get grown up until impassable and then some (non-native) buys the tract, clears the road, gates and posts it. And yes I am thinking of a specific "log road" on the way to the reservoir in Hyde Park that I've been on that now has a bridge, culverts, a gate, nice gravel (sic), and yes, no trespassing signs.
Was a class four, once, that ran through a piece of acreage. But now adjacent acreage is landlocked and inaccessible and I am told it is all legal 'cause it was eminent domain. Town didn't maintain it is the reasoning. I am no lawyer but that is hokey Baloney. I think they used to call roads like that class 6 in NH.
