ATV Trail From Maine To Quebec, Jericho Mountain State Park Doubles Trails

Sep 6, 2007
A new ATV trail opened recently that connects Maine to Quebec, Canada. The Jackman Moose River Region has around 300 miles of ATV OHV trails. Now riders can go to Canada on them, and ride the many trails there.

ATV riders are one of the biggest visitors to that region, and the popularity is quickly rising. The trail opens later this month, and two clubs (from each side of the border) are planning an ATV Rendezvous to mark the celebration.

Here's some important info if you plan on riding there:
You must obtain a pass to ride on the Canadian ATV trail before getting to the border. Currently, these will be available for you at Jackman Powersports and at Bishops Store in Jackman. Day, Seasonal, and Yearly passes are available.

For 2007 you will need a valid driver's license, proof of insurance and registration to cross the border.

Canada's definition of an ATV does not include anything with a steering wheel (ie: Prowlers, Rangers). However, for the ATV Rendezvous, an exception has been made.

Dirt bikes are not permitted on the ATV trails in Canada.

All ATV's must have a mirror and helmets are mandatory.

About the Jackman Moose River Region Chamber of Commerce, the JMRRCOC acts as tourism bureau for the area to reach out to visitors to provide area and local business information. Area residents and merchants are long accustomed to catering to visitors and wish to continue the tradition by welcoming you to the Jackman-Moose River Region.

The Border Riders Sportsman club in Jackman works to provide access to the Maine wilderness for all outdoor sports people to enjoy including ATV riding, hunting, sled dog racing, snowmobile trails, and water cross racing.

Also, Jericho Mountain, a State Park in Berlin, New Hampshire, USA will increase the number of available ATV trails from a total of 18 miles to 33 by next month, with more to come by year's end. They're currently building 20 bridges and a couple of boardwalks in the park.

In a time when all we see is activism and lobbying against ATVs, with more and more areas being closed, it's a nice change to see some places making more areas available. Aside from being good for users of ATVs by giving them more room for the fastest growing recreational sport instead of taking areas away, it's also good because it reduces the number of incidents of people riding illegally due to lack of a place to ride near them.

I should know; it's an hour trip for me to get to a trail. And that trail sucks for quads.
