ATV circuit system throughout NH's northernmost towns is a trial for some
Some are camp owners who had no real say in the town meeting votes to give this trail system a try. Some are homeowners who moved here to enjoy a house on a quiet country road and now feel like they're living alongside Interstate 93.
I have an ATV, purchased years ago for farm work. I'm a founding member of the Metallak ATV Club, based in Colebrook, and I've volunteered to help out with trail patrol. Those seeking to create a gigantic circular trail system (meaning you could park and unload your rig in any of the dozen or so towns and extend your trip for as many days as you want and come right back to your vehicle) know that just as in the early days of snowmobiling, they must rein in law-flouting rogue riders or they will lose the support and commitment of landowners. And that will be it. Finis.
Sandy Young, Don Tase and I had gone in on snowmobiles and snowshoes, trying to find the little hardwood knoll that Vickie Bunnell and I had flagged years before. We did, and lounged around there for a lunch break.
