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...

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

THE TRAILS ARE EXPECTED TO REOPEN MAY 15TH WEATHER AND TRAIL CONDITIONS PERMITTING. 
THE USE OF ATV'S ON A CLOSED TRAIL DURING MUD SEASON IS CONSIDERED FELONY TRESPASSING. 
If you see anyone on the trails or getting ready to head out on the trails please inform them the trails are closed till they dry up. The more damage we have, the longer it will take to get them open. Also, if we have too much damage to the trails (other’s property) we will lose the use of all trails permanently. I will remove all the signs and chains as soon as they are ready for use. Wow, what a winter. Snow, snow and more snow. Groom, groom and more grooming. All in all the trails were great and the work was fun. The Trails are going to need a lot of work in order to prepare them for the opening of the season this year. We will start doing trail work on the weekends, weather permitting. All are welcome and encouraged to help the trail maintenance crew prep for opening day. We will have some working weekends over the next 2 months so if you can spare some time please give me a call.  
THINK AND DRIVE
1. Make sure your registration is up to date. Properly attach your Registration stickers.
2. Check your helmet. Invest in a new one if it’s damaged by any dents or cracks.
3. Give your ATV a twice-over. Check that all equipment, including brakes, lights, engine, and tires are in good condition and functioning properly.
4. Familiarize yourself with local regulations and bylaws regarding ATV usage.
5. Get your emergency kit ready to go, including any or all of the following: blanket, snacks/food, waterproof matches, a whistle, insect repellant and sunblock, a flashlight, spare fuel, tea or coffee, water/water purification tablets, duct tape, signal mirror, tool kit, first aid supplies, rope, flares, spare keys, a sharp knife, and/or compass.
6. If your children want to ride, ensure they have completed the ATV safety course. If you haven’t ridden before or could just use a re-fresher, do the same. Don’t let your children use adult-sized ATVs.

7. Consider taking a first aid course. It doesn’t hurt to be prepared.
8. Get yourself in the mindset for a great riding season. Have fun!

RESPECT LANDOWNER’S - STAY ON MARKED TRAILS AND ONLY MARKED TRAILS. USE IS A PRIVILEGE, NOT A RIGHT.
