Abstract

"The Talk of Maine" piece on the growing popularity of all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) in Maine, and the resulting destruction caused by the machines. ATVs have become the fastest growing recreational pastime in Maine, with a 90 percent increase in registrations in the past five years to 55,660 in 2001. Landowners across the state, outraged by the damage and danger posed by ATVs, have posted thousands of acres of land, closing long-established snowmobile and hiking trails. With a focus on comments by Bob Cummings, president of the Phippsburg Land Trust, Harlan Brown, a landowner from South Gardiner, Jim Lane, a Registered Maine Guide in Parkman, and Roberta Scruggs, a veteran outdoors writer.
