Off-Road Resources

First and foremost, you need to know-

The State of Vermont has been actively working to shut down access to all Class 4 and Ancient roads since 2015. The towns of Vermont say they don’t have the funding to maintain them, and the State says the roads are the responsibility of the towns. This means, when groups go out and make a mess of a trail, litter, and piss off land owners – the chances are that trail will get shut down sooner than later. It is incumbent on you, and Off-Road traveler, to act responsibility at all times and to know the rules (written and implied) for how to deal with disgruntled people should they approach you. It is your responsibility to represent all Off-Road travelers, for better or worse. Please, just make us look good out there before this privilege is gone forever..
