Your Guide To ATV Trails, Parks, Clubs, and New Jersey ATV Use Restrictions
Public ATV trails are currently limited with most New Jersey ATV being privately managed parks that offer programs and events for ATV riders, some requiring membership.
These privately run and licensed parks have programs for training and the safe use of ATVs. Parents are urged to provide their children who are beginning ATV riders with instruction and training even though they do not need to legally possess a license to operate an ATV.
ATV riding is popular in New Jersey with many ATV riders finding their way to an illegal "undocumented off road riding trail".
This comes as a result of a large underground network of ATV riders that have identified Illegal "undocumented off road riding trails" and share this information informally among communities of ATV riders.
Most of these trails are on private property and riders are advised to inquire and ask permission before using them. Use of "undocumented" trails without permission is done at your own risk. Some of the risks include injuries from private property owners stringing wire across their property, injuries from un-groomed trails, and the risk of having local police issue tickets.
In New Jersey ATVs and motorcycles under 90 ccs are considered "non-conventional" vehicles and are required to be registered, though a title is not issued. The registration process is similar to registering a car or motorcycle. When you register a new or used ATV with the DMV, it becomes street-legal and insurance is required. You are advised to check with local DMV or insurance agent for insurance requirements for street legal ATVs.
Note: Sometimes conditions require cancellations or changes of dates, times and location which are not reflected in the original schedule. Before planning a trip to visit one of the listed venues, it is suggested that you call the sponsor to confirm availability or for additional information.
