The Central Maine Trail Blazers ATV Club would like all ATV riders to know the trails are closed for mud season. The red and white signs are posted at every intersection. The club will remove the signs when it is decided that mud season is over. ATV riders are asked not ride on the trails, because it causes significant damage when frost is still in the ground. Local police and game wardens have been notified. If you would like more information on rules, regulations, and laws of this sport, consider attending the Central Maine Trail Blazers’ next meeting on Tuesday, April 28th at 7 PM at the Corinna Fire Annex on Exeter Road in Corinna.
