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
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. Well Mother Nature gave us a good start to the snowmobile season then rained on our parade and took it away. All water crossings are not safe for use. Please keep your safety, your snowmobile and the land owners in mind before you attempt to ride the trails. Keep an eye on the web site for current trail conditions. The trails need at least 12 inches of snow to allow for a safe and fun snowmobile ride. The athletic fields, parking lots, and school grounds of MT Ararat high school are off limits to snowmobiles. The only authorized parking lots are J&S Oil, and across from the bus garage for loading and unloading. Without property owners consent there would be no trails for people to ride. If you see anything that needs the trail committee’s attention please call so it can be addressed. Keep an eye out for the grooming operations as we will be looking out for you.
Our Club this past year had several incidents of On-Off Road M/Cs causing problems with several of our landowners. One of those land owners has chosen to close his land to everyone including, Atv, M/C, Bikes, and walkers. This is mostly Because of no respect of the M/C users just abusing the property and landowner. We have other areas in our town that are also receiving complains about the lack of respect from them. We’ve decided after much thought to close our trails to M/Cs use due to these complaints and also that many of our trails are on property owned by Power Companies that have a policy that there will be no M/C on their land. The notice attached sadly is now the rule. Please if you’re on Ours or another club trail system respect all land owners! We will now use signs/cameras to enforce this new rule. We also have had created Land Owner contact magnets so they will have someone to contact when problems happen immediately.
Please Respect your Land Owners if you don’t we will not have a place to ride!
