   State releases new map of ATV trails

AUGUSTA, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- ATV riders will soon be able to ride one continuous trail system between Downeast Maine and Northern Aroostook County.

The Department of Conservation just released its new ATV trail map which it says included more than 6,000 miles of ATV trails - that includes about 2,300 miles of interconnected trails in Washington and Aroostook counties.

State Conservation officials believe this new interconnected trail system is the largest in the entire country, and they say that it's really generating a lot of interest from tourists and tourism businesses.

"It seems like everybody wants it...tourism chambers of commerce, individual towns, registration agents, club, dealers, businesses, a lot of these local businesses that own cabins, camps, motels are already calling," Brian Bronson, Department of Conservation, said. "They want the map because the want to be able to give it out to their clientele."

The ATV trails are closed during mud season. For more information on the ATV trail map and a list of ATV rules and regulations, click here.
