article in latest JP mag about MA trail...

Anyone see it?

They wouldn't say where it is because of the constant threat of people closing it.

I was wondering where it was. I haven't found any good trails in MA (all the good ones have been gated off for years now)

The "trail" in the article is probably the last remaining public land in MA where 4x4 is required and legal. Its actually not much of a trail at all but just a short section of hill climbs and ledges that I can walk from end to end in 10 minutes.

They mention go-arounds in the article but some of these go-arounds are not legal and continued use of them is what will eventually close this trail as well.

This upset me when i read this because people who cant stay on the trail and use the ILLEGAL go arounds are why we dont have but 1 or 2 legal trails in MA that are worth running...I was just reading there write up tonight

sorry, i was in a hurry.

i agree with everyone else who posted. if you just show up and drive on this trail, you WILL probably go on to private property and through environmentally sensitive areas without knowing it. eventually the trail will get closed down. because of this, private land is where everyone wheels in new england and clubs have access to the BEST private land.

its about half the length it once was due to non-commitment from a land owner. Its not worth a drive of over an hour or more if you're coming from east of worcester. No north to NH in search of legal class 6 roads for the best use of your time.

The best way to enjoy the outdoors in your 4x4 is to join a club.
I know that trail and the guy in the Silver Rubicon.

Any suggestions or where to look for class 6 roads?

Class 6 = New Hampshire.

Buy the DeLorme gazeteer and you will see all kinds of roads in NH. Unfortunately, its a completely different story in Southern NE. If you believe that wheelers from our neck of the woods deserve some local trails then I recommend joining the battle:
