    Was there this morning, did 2 laps with my son. Saw the female Ranger ask a guy & his son to leave for not having registrations.

    Wasn't the first time I've seen it, won't be the last. Be legal, or you will be "asked" to leave.......

    Depending on the weather, may be taking my other son for his first ride of the year, on Wednesday, 8AM.

    Most likely a relaxed ride, mostly on the big bike trails.

    My son wants to go to Rocky Hill on Wednesday. If it rains on Tuesday, the track will be very muddy,

    so we may come to the dam Dam anyway......

    I'm planning on being there this weekend. This http://www.nae.usace.army.mil/Portals/74/docs/Recreation/TMD/TrailBikeInfoSheet2015.pdf says that a NY street registration is good enough. I've ridden there three times with my NY plate and I have never gotten any trouble about it but I've also never been questioned about it so I'll keep my fingers crossed... and a copy of the rules. Yes I see that it's dated 2015. Hopefully it has not changed.

    With an a N.Y. atv reg they haven't bothered my kids on little bikes. I'm not sure but as long as it has a plate I think it's good

    I'm about to head over there today. Do any of you know if they typically close the place on rainy days? So far I've only ridden there on dry days.

    I would call first! Especially after the rain we got last night in the region.

    Called 'em and the lady I spoke with said that they are open.

    Thanks for your suggestion.
