    Where does it go?

    If there is not a 'no trespassing' sign, go find out. It's called 'adventure'.

    Off the beaten path indeed!

    I know that trespass is just a tort violation unless the owner has proper "no trespass" signage in place, but IMHO unless the sign says "public property come on in" assume it's private, and ask first; the better way to gain access to remote country, and the better way to make new friends!

    Exactly!

    I never ride on private property without the permission of the owner. I prefer to let the loud pipes pirates be the bad boys of motorcycling.

    Fortunately for me we have a lot of class IV (unmaintained historical right of ways) here in New England. They are still on the maps as roads so it is legal to ride them.

    The photo in the first post is a trail on Hunter Mountain, it popped out on a double diamond ski trail, no way I was going to try going down it so I turned around and made it to the top on service roads.

    I agree...I stand (sit actually) corrected.
    I should have put a 'smiley man' to indicate humour.
    I still think that he should go find out 'were it goes', after asking the owners permission of course.
    have a good day

    If we are to govern we should at least know how to spell.
