A Maine ATV and Snowmobile club for Topsham and the surrounding towns. We have trails on both sides of town. One set starts out at J&S Oil on Route 196 and goes out through to Lisbon Falls. The other set starts out at Mt. Ararat High School off Rt 201 and goes through some great areas , passes over Middlesex Road about a mile up from Rusty's Store, down around the pond near the local redemption site and some go up into Bowdoin/Bowdoinham. In the winter you can even go so far as Brunswick and West Bath.
Come join us out on the trails...
for previous issues please email us here and we'll send you the PDFs through email.
All ATV trails are operated on privately owned land, individuals damaging or abusing their property will result in the loss of all ATV trails for everyone.
Operating an ATV in wetlands, marshes, rivers, and streams is illegal in Maine.
RESPECT LANDOWNERS - STAY ON MARKED TRAILS AND OBEY ALL POSTED SIGNS. USE IS A PRIVILEGE, NOT A RIGHT. RIDE AT OWN RISK.
Trail Update from Trailmaster Charlie Parkinson
Well all the time and effort it took to get permission for and build the trail to reconnect the east and west sides of town was destroyed in less than one riding season. Due to the selfish actions and reckless behavior of numerous dirt bike riders the landowners have asked that we close the connector trail at the end of this season. The club has been discussing banning all dirt bikes from all Topsham trails as a result.
The Trails for snowmobile season have several major changes to what riders are used to, trail #1A has been extended to meet trails #1, #2 in the big power line. Snowmobiles are not allowed on Trail #1B this is an ATV only trail. The portion of trail #2 that started on the east side of town behind the old Napa building is permanently closed, we are in the process of rerouting the trail for this season. If you have not looked at the new trail map you need to so that you ride on the correct trails this season.
Hunting season is in full swing so remember to stay alert and wear orange when in the woods. The weather has turned cold and the Snow is coming so get your riding in now before Mother Nature blankets us in white and its SNOWMOBILE season again. ATV season is fast coming to a close, and the trails will be closing to ATV’s. Snow-mobile season will begin after the first large snow fall. The trails will be closed to all ATV's with the exception of tracked ATV’s registered as snowmobiles for snowmobile season. I hope everyone enjoys their holiday season. We will be looking for people to help with trail setup and grooming this snowmobile season.
Currently we are working on getting a new trail to connect the east and west side of town for snow mobile season as the current trail landowners have asked us to move the trail.
The Speed limit on Rte. 201(Main St) and in residential areas like Bay Park and Topsham Crossing is 15MPH to help keep dust and noise to a minimum.
TRUCKS AND CARS ARE NOT ALLOWED ON ATV/SNOWMOBILE TRAILS IN THE STATE OF MAINE WITHOUT LAND OWNER PERMISSION.
While riding please wear proper protective equipment and keep speeds at a safe level. Ride Smart, Ride Safe, Ride Sober.
Again, if you’re out on the trail please bring a pair of clippers or even a small saw to help cut back the new growth from the summer. Every snip helps.
