Rail 66 Country Trail Guidelines
Our guidelines for the trail are meant to preserve it for years to come. If all abide by these simple guidelines, we will ensure that nature is protected and that all persons can use the trail safely – every season.
No Motorized Vehicles
The Rail 66 Country Trail does not allow motorized vehicles. The reason is that the trail was purchased and developed by private donations and grants and is covered by liability insurance that prohibits the use of motorized vehicles. ATV, dirt bike, snowmobile and equine use raise liability issues that insurers are unwilling to accept and grants prohibit.
Motorized recreational vehicles are not conducive to the safety of our ever-growing number of trail users because of speed and the narrowness of the corridor. Motorized vehicles and horses pose a serious safety hazard to pedestrians, children on bicycles and in strollers and the general cycling community and degrade the trail surface.
Accommodating motorized vehicles would require two trails divided by a safety barrier. The Rail 66 property is too narrow to construct two separate trails. Restricting motorized vehicle use will be strictly enforced.
