The New England ATV Association is a club of off-highway enthusiasts formed to promote and protect the sport of off-highway recreation. By joining forces with others who enjoy off-highway recreation and by working with our state officials, we will help to ensure the future use and enjoyment of our forests for ourselves and our children.


NEATVA was formed in 1995 and provides rides in Massachusetts and Maine. We also schedule events in New Hampshire and outside New England. We schedule day rides, multi-day rides, and campouts.


We subscribe to the philosophy of Tread Lightly! and, in partnership with DCR, maintain and improve the trails in the State Forests of western Massachusetts.


But mainly, we are riders who enjoy the outdoors, trail riding with friends and family, and socializing with others. If you are looking for a group to ride withy and enjoy yourself, join us!

Summer of 2015 is arriving soon, and with it the ATV riding season!<?xml:namespace prefix = "o" /> 

The calendar has been set, with a few revisions: 

We did not schedule a seasonal opening ride at Walnut Grove, Alfred, Maine because of little interest last year.  If anyone is interested, let me know and perhaps we can arrange something. 

As we did last year, we will be camping at Balsam Woods the weekend of July 4th and the following week – July 4 through July 12.  Some will stay the entire time, others may come up later or leave earlier, but one or another will be there during that time. 

Last year a few people rode in New Hampshire.   New Hampshire has 1,000 (some say 2,000) miles of interconnected trail.  The riding is different than Maine riding – some pavement and more woods trails rather than logging roads.  But they said the experience was fun.   So this year we are going to northern New Hampshire August 10 through 14.  Anyone interested should RSVP me so we can find lodging that will accommodate our needs. 

If anyone would like to suggest a place or time for a ride, please contact me so we can consider it.
