If you register your ATV you can ride in Pachaug State Park and Shenipsit State Forest.

Not that I've ever gone there, but technically.....

 They have to bee street legal... So no Quads... registered dual sport dirt bikes are okay, and if you can find a way to get your side by side street legal I guess that would be allowed too...

 And Shenipsit is only legal for DEEP sanctioned events (once or twice a year)

I ride with a group occasionally on our dirt bikes.  Does anyone here ride Pachaug?  Or Thomaston?  Netra?

here's the plan they tried to put into place in 2002 that was never voted on or implemented...  Still sucked

COREC is making strides. They already have already secured a piece of land.

Seems that way. I was thinking about bringing it up to the BOD how they should discuss the club joining their efforts.

 I've been told directly from someone who was in OPM, that it'll never happen here in CT...    :swear_mad:

I feel you have received bad information. When I have time, I will sit down and explain why it can and how it will happen. We've already identified exactly the process that is needed to be successful and we've already started to institute this process. ATV's are such a hot topic because of all the complaints, not because of the people fighting for their rights to public lands. Now the tables are beginning to turn but if these ATV guys don't get off their butts and start being organized and go vote, I'm not sure how much we can really do for them. It takes people to make a difference, not just a state organization.
