Off-Road Riding Discouraged

Looking to ride your dirt bike in the dirt, your four-wheeler where two wheelers dare not go?

Sorry, in this region that’s not, strictly speaking, legal.

It’s also something that local environmentalists frown upon because off-road vehicles – referred to in Massachusetts as OHV (Off Highway Vehicles) – can seriously damage our fragile, sandy soils, destroying prime habitat.

We’d suggest you take a walk instead, and enjoy what is one of the most beautiful and biodiverse parts of the state.

We’d also like you to know that the organizations that have created the Explore Natural Plymouth website don’t have their heads in the sand.

We are actively working to establish new, rational policies that recognize the need for legal OHV trails.

We can and will co-exist, but, for now, please understand and abide by local regulations.

If you’d like to be part of the effort to both protect this special environment and secure legal riding trails, contact Emmanuel Owusu at 617.626.1187 or Emmanuel.Owusu@Massmail.state.ma.us.
