A subject from China (Maine) has been charged with Operating a Motor Vehicle on an ATV Trail for allegedly "mudding" with his pickup on an ATV trail in Wellington. Ranger Ben Goodwin said that the man was allegedly driving his truck on the trail and did cause significant damage to the property. Ranger Goodwin said that the truck then became stuck causing further damage. He added that there was a sign posted at the entrance to the trail which said, "Respect Landowners. Stay on Marked Trail. Use of This Trail is a Privilege, Not a Right."
Ranger Goodwin estimates the damage to be in excess of $500. He said that he will be requesting this in restitution along with a fine of up to $500.
The Whistle Stop Trail consists of a 35 mile trail system. The railroad bed is an easy ride extending from Jay to Farmington. Other trails continue on Verso Paper land, the Cornelio Road, powerline trails and a loop in North Jay. We have beautiful scenic areas with waterfalls and mountain views.
Each year we have our "Annual Whistle Stop Trail" ATV Ride on the last Saturday in September, (see link for details). A special thank you to everyone who attended for making it a success.
