Other activities approved in writing by CMP Additionally, when the ATV/snowmobile trails are built and maintained by the clubs using State money (almost all are) those are also restricted by law. It's not that people hate 4X4's. In fact, I have a mudder but I take it to approved trails. It is just the fact that people destroy trails, bridges, floating trails with their rigs. I have helped build a bridge on one Saturday and returned the next Saturday to find it destroyed! Now we post cameras and turn the pictures over to the Warden Service and State Police. If you really want to be a good neighbor and help the 4X4 community, use approved ares.
I got permission from CMP to wheel my jeep on the power lines... All it took was a phone call. I've been wheeling from Scarborough into Gorham and Saco for the last 8 years without any issues and have seen a handful of wardens while I'm out there.
