Hodges Village Dam – Registered Off-Road Motorcycles Only

Off-highway motorcycles are allowed on the west side of the French River as reservoir levels, weather, and trail conditions permit.  This is a popular off-highway motorcycle area in Central Massachusetts and draws visitors from the tri-state area. NOTE: ATV use is not permitted on the trails. All motorcycles must be registered with the Massachusetts Environmental Police.  No fee.

MORE: We encourage those who love off-road vehicles and snowmobiles to enjoy trails designed for those purposes.  Be sure to pass this information on to your vehicle-loving friends in The Last Green Valley! Join a riding association and learn about private land riding options, too.

At the current time, neither Connecticut nor Massachusetts has any public areas open to quads in The Last Green Valley’s 35 towns.  Additionally, there are no Connecticut state-managed areas open to dirt bikes.
