I’ve stumbled upon this route. (Trans Mass Trail) it’s a mix of pavement and dirt/gravel roads. I thought about checking it out, but I don’t have a garmin nav to plug in the file. I have an app but not sure how well it will work.

I looked into this last year. From my research I found that only motorcycles were allowed on those trails. I think full sized vehicles were too big for their laws

Really? I was under the impression they were roads just not upkept by the towns. ‍♂
That would certainly be prefered. This was a year ago but I think they have a weight cap on the vehicles that can travel those roads. For some reason I remember 1000 pounds or something. But if you find out something different. That would be awesome news. Iv been wanting to do that for over a year now


Edit: did a quick search. Mostly all of the trails in mass are OHV areas. They’re all state forest. But they don’t classify jeeps or other road SUV’s as OHV’s or off highway vehicles. Those trails are for atv’s and motorcycles.

But if you want, New Hampshire isn’t too far away. There’s some nice class 6 roads

Yes, I called up one day to verify that at state parks and was disappointed. There is all so a route that starts in Ma and I believe goes all the way to canada via VT called the puppy dog route. Which is all dirt not sure if that are considered class 6, I think they are just VT roads.

There is a guy who made a video of the trans mass trail on you tube. I wrote him a bit ago and he said it’s a go.
