Project Location: This policy applies to Forest Preserve, Reforestation, Multiple Use, Unique, Wildlife Management Areas, Tidal Wetlands, Environmental Education Centers and Conservation Easement Lands throughout the State.

Project Description: The action involves a new policy that establishes criteria for determining the suitability of roads or trails to be opened or to remain open to public ATV access on land owned and/or managed by the Department. This will be accomplished through the unit management planning process and pursuant to the terms of individual conservation easements and associated recreation management plans and only if the relevant requirements of the Adirondack Park State Land Master Plan and the Catskill Park State Land Master Plan (when applicable), Department rules and regulations, Vehicle and Traffic Law provisions, and other policy criteria have been satisfied.

The Department does not offer ATV riding as a program on the public lands that it owns and manages, however, it is one of several ways that the public may utilize to access its programs, such as hunting, fishing, camping and hiking on public and easement lands that have been determined to be appropriate for such use and are open to public ATV access. This policy prohibits the use of ATVís within the boundaries of Wildlife Management Areas, Tidal Wetlands and Environmental Education Centers, with the possible exception of ATV use by persons with disabilities using CP-3 permits and non-ambulatory hunting permits.
