Trail Updates

Hello Trail Riders,
The riding season is winding down and we have been told the Blue Trails East are now closed for the season. PLEASE do not ride around closed gates unless a "Horse Trail" go around is indicated. With deer hunting season starting this Saturday October 27th the only safe days to ride will be on Sundays. We highly recommend that riders wear blaze orange at all times throughout fall even on Sundays.
We will be removing many of the trail signs shortly.  Thanks and see you all in the spring. Watch Facebook for the most current news.
Happy Trails!

Notice To Trail Riders

posted Aug 11, 2018, 4:55 AM by Webmaster ERR

August 11, 2018 - Caution trail riders. All the signs on the Blue Trail East (Roxbury ATV trails) have been stolen. So if you ride there with our map be sure to follow the names of trails on the ATV signs and ride with a mapping app on your phone. We will be adding blue marks directly on the existing ATV trail signs WITH their permission. These will be a blue dot (about 2-3") on one corner. Intersections will have the # on the dot. It will take us a week to get this done. Sorry for the inconvenience.  ~ERR Trail Committee
