Martha’s Vineyard Trail Closures


The Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation is proposing to close “unauthorized” trails in the Manuel F. Correllus State Forest on Martha’s Vineyard.


Read this Vineyard Gazette article for more information.


If you ride on the Vineyard, or have an opinion on this, you can submit public comment on the proposed plan by 3/19.


NEMBA supports the creation of authorized trails. Proper permission should always be sought before creating or maintaining a trail or trail system. NEMBA also recognizes the lack of a formal process in many locations and supports efforts to work with officials and land managers to create a path towards authorizing appropriate legacy trails and construction of new trails. We repeat, do not build trails without permission.
