I have heard of one KINDA LEGAL place to go around Southern Conn. Atwater Road in Bethany CT.

Now from what I've heard, it's a street. That's it. Undeveloped & fun! My buddies have been going there for months now, and from what they told me, they've never gotten caught. It's a very long, dead-end street. There is one house, on the corner of Atwater & the main road, but that's it. I've been told that you'll notice it isn't safe for cars. Too many steep inclines & declines. I haven't been able to get up there yet, but I thought I'd pass the info along.

My buddy told me that the trails are very long, and there's a lot of mud pits & a few rock inclines. The only thing is, you don't want to come out the same way you came in. He said he cops don't exactly mind, but would rather not have mud all over the streets. I'm just passing along what I was told.

I have a Google Earth map of the area. Apparently the trails do connect to other streets closeby.

But I have to say, I agree with Toxic Turtle. We should be careful of the environment & any illegal wheeling. I would hate to ruin the experience for other wheelers & future wheelers by doing something illegal & making the situation worse for everyone else.

One of my maps shows it as a road. However, it is NOT on my state list of unmaintained roads in Bethany. Which means, that it may no longer be on the books and no longer open... which means that it has reverted back to the surrounding landowners and is private property.
One can make a quick call to the town clerk's office and ask if Atwater is still on the books as a complete through street or if any portion of it has been abandoned/discontinued/reverted to its abutters.
In looking over the Vitual Earth map of the area, it appears as though it ends in the backyards of some good sized homes.. the type that don't take very well to rigs rolling up into their backyards.

I would take the few minutes to contact the town offices before heading out there.

Talk soon,

I live about 3 miles from there...that's a fun trail but it can be hard if you don't have a lot of clearance, there's a few large rock you have to go over and cannot go around.

I am just a few min away --- if it's legal, I'm up for a ride.

Did you get the chance to figure out ownership of the road?

It's actually not legal, I don't think. But i have seen tons of people on there so I guess its no prob, and on top if it police couldn't get down there if they wanted to.

Even though the police can't get down there, that doesn't mean they won't be waiting for you on the road.

My buddy who told me of the spot, is going down there in the next couple of days. He has an extra seat in his cherokee, and he has some huge tires, so I'm gonna tag along & check it out

Apparently there are many ways out of the trails to other main roads nearby, it would seem silly to me that 5 or 6 cop cars would really sit around all afternoon & wait for us to come out. I could be wrong, prob am, but from what I've heard, the po-lice don't really care that much. Haha...I guess I'm gonna test that theory in a few days!
